Architecture is both an expression of reality and a future vision of possible living environments. Ole Scheeren: Spaces of Life deals with the work of the architect Ole Scheeren, who was born in Karlsruhe in 1971, and the question of how today’s architecture can be used to create prototypes for tomorrow’s life.
Scheeren is one of the best-known German architects and has made a name for itself with innovative high-rise buildings and residential projects. As the world’s best high-rise project for urban living, his residential development, The Interlace, in Singapore received the Urban Habitat Award from the Council for High-rise Buildings and Urban Living in Chicago in 2014, and was named “World Building of the Year” by the international World Architecture Festival in 2015.
Since 2010, he has been running his own office with offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, Berlin and London. For him, architecture is an organism intertwined with life. Through Ole Scheeren: Spaces of Life, Scheeren breaks through what were once separate functional areas such as living and working, commerce and culture by designing spaces that focus on people’s needs.
