Profile

Since the nineties, contemporary architecture is being confronted with a contradictory phenomenon. Architects are asked on one hand to produce very neutral and anonymous buildings adaptable to different programs. On the other hand at the same time, they are asked to create very specific buildings easy to identify with unique spaces. Atelier Kempe Thill – founded in 2000 by two German architects André Kempe (Freiberg, *68) and Oliver Thill (Karl-Marx-Stadt, *71) - takes this modern paradox very consciously as the point of departure of the work. The office tries to create structures that are neutral and economic as well as being specific and innovative. The aim of the work is to achieve “Specific Neutrality” that gives architecture the possibility to express the hidden vitality of our time.
