Our new publication 'metaform01' soon in bookstores

The publication is the first in a new series created by Metaform, with the aim to showcase the most significant current and future projects in our office. 'metaform01' is focused on the housing project in Cessange, Luxembourg. The goal is to promote continuous communication and mutual trust between the client and the architect.

At a time when architecture is becoming increasingly divided into various specializations, mastering architecture as a whole has become rare…and even rarer are the architects who accept a project from the concept phase on through to the integration of a multidisciplinary team (engineering consultants, artists..).

Architecture can please or displease. Regardless one’s personal opinion, we believe it should become the object of an open broader debate with the purpose of enriching our building culture.

The end

Graffiti | Just before its demolition, an old house in Gosseldange got a new and the last breath on June 13. Sumo and his colleagues, Stick and Spike, dressed the derelict house from the inside to the outside. A unique artistic interpretation based on the brutality of a demolition (mundane to our eyes). The transformation of spaces inhabited for decades into a singular and ephemeral object was quite challenging.

Release of the 'Carnet d'opinions' No 4.

Some of the new urbanization programs imply replacement of churches with the new shopping malls. Today, commercial zoning policy is one of the government’s major concerns, given that the trade is still one of the essential requirements when it comes to the development of cities. As each city has its own specific history and morphology, the new pattern of urbanization must consider various factors that are included in the process in order to maintain a balanced development.
