With their bathroom buildings, 4a Architekten is one of those offices that primarily create architecture for people – as Günter Behnisch once put it.
Their bathrooms are characterised by a special feel-good atmosphere. But how does this come about, what prerequisites does architecture have to create for it?
These questions form the central theme of the exhibition at the Aedes Architekturforum Berlin.
However, the exhibition is not intended to be a retrospective or a retrospective by 4a architects, but shows the diversity of today's pool construction: from school pools to thermal baths, from sports pools to wellness facilities.
On the basis of twelve selected bathrooms, the range is examined in detail with models. To this end, the architects explain in short video statements what drives them when designing.
The Aedes Architecture Forum is associated with the big names in the world of architecture, as well as with the continuous support of young, emerging generations of architects.
Under the direction of founder Kristin Feireiss and director Hans-Jürgen Commerell, more than 600 exhibitions have been realized at the Aedes Architecture Forum over more than four decades.
The work of the Aedes Architecture Forum has received several international awards and honours for its successful communication of architecture and building culture.
