Lederer Ragnarsdóttir Oei

Timeless and Tactile


Unlike so many architects preoccupied with dissolving the boundary between interior and exterior, the architectural trio formed by Arno Lederer, Jórunn Ragnarsdóttir, and Marc Oei turns back to the tradition of solid walls and clearly marked enclosures without falling into the trap of historicism, always seeking to enrich the spatial experience with a tactile sensuality. Arquitectura Viva takes stock of the work of the practice based in Baden-Württemberg through four public buildings located in western Germany, in a journey from Swabia north to the Rhine Valley: a bank branch in Ulm, an ecclesiastical center in Stuttgart, a museum in Frankfurt, and a school complex in Cologne.
