This is a question for you?This is the answer, Barkow Leibinger's creations is an experiment on structure and ornament. The appearance of their buildings harks back to a 1970s aesthetic, only that the materials they use are very contemporary and incredibly well researched. There is a touch of Buckminster Fuller or Frei Otto in how they design. Their architecture is minimal with a soft touch for computerised high-tech, a point that Hal Foster perfectly addresses in his introduction to the book. But their research is never decorative and their relationship with computer generated geometric shapes never formalist. Their high-tech is not a genre or a style, it is deeply rooted in the reality of the world of construction and engineering. This very probably also due to the fact that they make architecture where nobody else does: on hangars, logistics centers, factories or campus restaurants.
