Open lecture at BAS Wednesday 10. May from 1430-1600: "SOMETHING FANTASTIC" by Leo Streich
SOMETHING FANTASTIC / Leo Streich
Something Fantastic is a young architectural practice operating from Berlin.Something Fantastic began about 2009, when then-architecture students Julian Schubert, Elena Schütz, and Leo Streich collaboratively developed their diploma thesis at the University of the Arts (UdK Berlin). The result was a compelling publication about their views on where architecture has been and where it can go.The book entited "Something Fantastic: A Manifesto by Three Young Architects on Worlds, People, Cities, and Houses" has a stunning appeal and formed the basis for their consecutive works and various activities.
Something Fantastic is committed to smart, touching, simple architecture. Its works include publications (Something Fantastic, Building Brazil, e. a.)?teaching (ETH Zurich, e.a.) and design for private and institutional clients. ?Next to Something Fantastic the partners Schubert, Schütz, and Streich also operate a creative agency called Belgrad to be able to work in a broader field and context of creative production. The belief that architecture is affected by everything and vice versa does affect everything is the basis of their claim that working as architects involves a general interest and involvement in the world.
