Covid-19 collaborations

Even more so in these difficult times, unusual collaborations happen unexpectedly and all of a sudden, this time with Atelier de maquettes Christine Franck and Dr. Laurent Meyers. Together we developed, produced and delivered 100 bio-compatible key elements to integrate with the new respirators for the Ministry of Health. The fight against Covid-19 continues, and we do what we can to help with our skills and knowledge.

Protective shield for young school children

Since schools in Luxembourg are soon going to re-open for young children, as parents, architects, designers we decided to re-think the existing safety medical face shield, and re-adapt it to be placed on the kids’ hat. 

The protective shield is not a substitute for a mask. The main goal is to reduce the frequency a child touches his/her face, outside the classroom, in the school hallway, courtyard, from school to home. To dedramatize this new situation and to reduce the potential anxiety in kids and parents, we introduce a creative add-on, which kids can personalize, and wear and exhibit proudly.

Feel free to share and download the file for 3d printing and the templates. The documents are open source and available for anyone who wants to produce the protection shields.

Anri Sala - Le temps coudé

After our first scenography last February at the Mudam museum for the painting of Jutta Koether, Metaform Architects entered a new collaboration with Studio Anri Sala for the The Anri Sala's exhibition which can be viewed till January 2020.

Metaform in action as scenographers!

Recently we have been invited to develop a scenography for an exibition at Mudam Luxembourg - Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean. The exhibition called 'Tour de Madame' is a retrospective dedicated to the painting of Jutta Koether.

'Long associated with writing, music and performance, Koether’s painterly oeuvre shown in this densely sweeping presentation highlights her pictorial and conceptual approach to painting over four decades. Koether’s painting constantly confronts the conditions of its own production, as a site of reflection on the act of looking and the perspectives such an act might bring to bear according to who is looking, how and when. The exhibition crucially highlights the historical significance of Koether’s oeuvre as a counter-history to the (male-dominated) canons of modernism and post-modernism, and the understanding of painting in our contemporary world as part of a dynamic set of historical, cultural and social relations.'

The exhibition is open from 16/02/2019 until 12/05/19.

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.
