CAPTURING A BUILDINGS SOUL
This is a book we designed for an interreligious community; the Katharinawerk in Basel, Switzerland. The house; designed by architect Hermann Baur in 1967; which has become a part of the peoples lives, will disappear now after decades of use.
We tried to capture the house and its character photographically, and designed a book for the inhabitants. It should function as an instrument to bring back the memories one connects with the place after the the destruction of the building.
"With the disappearance of living spaces, concealed reminiscent fragments may get lost forever, because one cannot visit the place of their origin any more."
