|This very special exhibition journal, West Arch – A New Generation in Architecture takes a look
at twenty-five architectural practices from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, primarily
characterized by their experimental and unconventional approaches to contemporary demands on architecture. The focus is on the specific and speculative aspects of a new generation of architectural thought and strategies. Planned and potential projects have been included alongside built structures. Production factors such as materials, research, and teaching, new media and technologies, promotion and competition structures, education, role models, and networks are all discussed.
With essays by Anh-Linh Ngo/Berlin, Anneke Bokern/Amsterdam and Christoph van Gerrewey/
Brüssel and texts by Florian Heilmeyer and Andrea Nakath.
