Jan Kinsbergen, David Klemmer - Dixit #04
The fourth issue of the critical review Dixit, in which the words of the architects Jan Kinsbergen and David Klemmer confront each other, in the format of a dichotomous visual atlas, around the theme of the process.
A visual documentary in the fields of architectonic conception, structural engineering and visualization in the format of a dichotomous atlas. The so called ultimate ambition of the real construction site only marks the beginning of another process of appropriation, life cycle analysis and change. Not the finalised project, but rather the raw material traces the process.
As the self-renewing discipline that is architecture, Caryatide editions picks up the torch of the critical magazine—which was their very first form. They wish to enrich the debate around architecture by bringing a word that confronts to the news. Architecture is at the convergence of questioning, a discipline nourished by cross-disciplinary approaches. As such, as a signature, Caryatide endeavours to keep a critical point of view, enriched by a social and political look which the architectural discipline depends on, to highlight its complexity and aspirations.
For each issue, three times a year, two contributors are invited to share their thoughts on a new theme.
After studying architecture at ETH Zurich, Jan Kinsbergen completed his diploma under the supervision of Hans Kollhoff. In 1993, he moved to New York City, where he worked at Steven Holl's architecture firm until 1999. He then founded his own architecture firm, also in New York. During this period, Jan Kinsbergen taught architecture as a visiting lecturer at Columbia GSAPP University in New York. From 2002 to 2008, he was a faculty member at ETH Zurich. Since 2002, he has been managing Jan Kinsbergen Architekt Ltd. in Zurich, Switzerland.
David Klemmer is an austrian architect based in Zurich and founder of Studio David Klemmer. For over a decade he has been working as a CGI artist constructing virtual scenarios in collaboration with renowned architecture offices, among others including works for Valerio Olgiati, Miller Maranta, Karamuk Kuo, Jean- Pierre Dürig, Bruther and Jan Kinsbergen. David Klemmer studied architecture at the University of Applied Sciences Joanneum and at the Technical University in Graz. In 2017 he opened his own studio for architecture. In 2022 he established Studio Diode as an independent satellite dedicated to digital images.
