Piet Eckert & Wim Eckert

The book presents the first comprehensive monograph on E2A. E2A considers their work an interpretation of contemporary living conditions. In today’s context, expectations, experiences, and ambitions characterize places and dynamically collide with reality. The disparate becomes the program of the discipline of architecture which, in E2A’s work, becomes a persistent journey of discovery that explores and exposes associations and relationships. Here, one experiences a fine line between dream and reality which could be described as a systematic incoherence. Projects, ideas, essays, and notes supplement built projects and record positions, assessments, and ongoing questions. It is in this way that we become accomplices in the intense debate about the city and architecture.
