In the design process we draw on theoretical and historical knowledge, reveal the knowledge both explicit and implicit in organisations, and develop artistic and research led solutions that can withstand the challenges that work and living pose to contemporary architecture. Theory/research and concrete designing tasks are dialectically related; the work of Andreas Rumpfhuber and Expanded Design does not present a contradiction. The impulse, set free through this interconnection, allows the users of the spaces to relate in new ways towards each other and their context.
