Natural – Architecture in Dialog
Eike Roswag Scholarship at the Villa Massimo 2013

Eike Roswag and Andrea Klinge used their time at the Deutschen Akademie Rom Villa Massimo to enter into dialogue with various partners reflecting on projects completed together and to discuss the circumstances required for the incubation and development of sustainable Architecture.

One table, completed with the help of the guests, and a light suspended shadow roof, both out of Italian bamboo, stand for the future potential of natural building materials and embody the place of discussion.

In collaboration with
Andrea Klinge, Architect
Friederike Meyer, Journalist 
and other partners
