Product Description

AG 4 – Tiergarten

210 hectares of forest in the middle of Berlin. Tiergarten, in all its variety of forms and transformations in time, describes our relationship to the city. Tiergarten is simultaneous history, artifact and nature, and indifferent to the constraints of function and representation, is determined by pure contingency.

AG (Architektur in Gebrauch) is a magazine for architecture in use. Each number of this series documents one building or one built structure in its current state, considering its transformation while looking back at the moment when it was built. The term “use” (Gebrauch) constitutes from this perspective the driving force behind the development of every built structure.

AG is a magazine for the practice of architecture. Instead of another contribution to a history of architecture, repeating itself as an endless series of new buildings in which the photographs of the time of realization become the only instance of authenticity and influential moment, AG follows the opposite way by observing, from the point of view of the now, history as a simultaneous present. With the focus on the present, which is also the focus on the value of use, AG intends to seize the production conditions in architecture as the main discourse on the built environment.
