"Poetic everyday architecture does not aim at the singular-special image or the monumental value of architecture. It takes shape in a complex game of conditions and things."
The exhibition concept is based on an irritating experience: the difference between elementary and real architecture and its pictorial representation and dominance in the digital media.
This difference does not pose a serious problem as long as the image of architecture plays a relatively subordinate role in relation to real architecture. Increasingly, however, images determine architectural reality and the impression is created that buildings are primarily designed with their exceptional (digital) image effect in mind. With regard to their own works, hirner & riehl has, however, developed a different agenda over the years: The qualities of the living world such as location, space, use and material are at least as important as the visual effect of a building. In this sense, the exhibition at the Architekturgalerie München shows the buildings in use - Ulrike Myrzik's photographs take a different look at space and building.
Since 1990, Martin Hirner and Dr. Martin Riehl have been developing buildings that are formally, functionally and ecologically sustainable from the conditions they find.In 2016 three office partners joined the team and in 2018 they demonstrated with the refugee project "Bellevue di Monaco" how important the integration process is for the development of successful architecture. Today, the Munich-based office has over 30 employees.
