Swiss architect Pascal Flammer worked in the office of Valerio Olgiati before establishing his own practice in 2005. He has won a number of national and international awards, including the Swiss Art Award and the Weissenhof Architecture Award. Currently visiting lecturer at Princeton, he has also taught at Harvard and the ETH Zürich.
In this talk, he discusses the house in rural Switzerland he designed for his own family. House In Balsthal (2014) provides for two different ways of experiencing the landscape: at ground floor level, a visceral connection to the surrounding nature, created by a low ceiling and continuous windows; at first floor level, a sense of detached observation.
Flammer also explores his changing design approach from a reliance on systems to composition, and his unconventional approach to teaching his studies at Princeton and Harvard.
Recorded in London in September 2018.
