Following the pair of monographic "Sauerbruch Hutton Archives" (Archive, 2006; Archive 2, 2016) Lars Mu ller Publishers presents a reader edited by the architects. Matthias Sauerbruch and Louisa Hutton have asked a diverse group of authors to reflect on the various conditions that have shaped the conception, production and dissemination of architecture in Europe over the course of the last three decades, and of the architecture that has resulted. The essays generally include observations on one or more of Sauerbruch Hutton's buildings, but these do not necessarily form the focus of the respective texts.
The authors include critics who have written on the work of the practice in the past, architectural colleagues and writers whose opinions and observations are respected by the editors as well as a handful of people who either live or work in one of their buildings and so have experienced Sauerbruch Hutton's architecture firsthand. Further, a photographic essay by the Finnish artist Ola Kolehmainen will augment the twenty-five essays with works created between 1990 and 2020. Analogous to the written pieces, these are images in their own right and of their own subjects that have been triggered by the presence of one of Sauerbruch Hutton's buildings.
