Bill in Ulm (D)

Motivated by the Thesis, recently defended at the ETSAM by our friend Carlos Asensio Wandosell, whose title is La arquitectura de la Hochschule für Gestaltung Ulm, de la objetividad a la revolución (The architecture of the Hochschule für Gestaltung Ulm, from objectivity to revolution), we travelled to the german medieval city of Ulm to pay a visit to the fantastic building by the swiss architect Max Bill. We were highly impressed by the naturalness of how it stands on the site, by the intensity of the inner and outer routes, by the simplicity of the constructive details, by the logical selection of materials and colours and the beautiful impact of the natural light. We walked through the building realizing how this architecture has influenced in subsequent projects that nowadays are our main references.
