GRAFT founding partner Lars Krueckeberg in an interview with JUNG Architecture Talks, now available to listen on demand (German)
Recently, the new book GRAFT monography “IDENTITY” was published. Anyone expecting a guide to the success of so called ‘Signature Building’s will be disappointed, since the office does not use a clearly recognizable architectural language. Quite the opposite—any attempt to classify them in the famous drawers would fail. The architects call this principle “grafting” through “traditional, virtual and analog realities” in order to develop innovative and socially relevant solutions through unexpected, surprising misunderstandings. “Between glamor and world salvation” was the headline of a large daily newspaper about the work in the office.
Our founding partner Lars Krückeberg will give a talk entitled ‘GRAFTing Identities’ at World Architecture Virtual Festival.
The importance of identity within designed space, from individual to community, from city to region, cannot be underestimated. At a time when there is a blurring of boundaries between the real and the virtual, urban and rural, and local and global, our built environment plays a fundamental role in defining identity. GRAFT believes in the power of architecture as a tool, best employed not for its own sake, but to represent these ambiguous and diverse identities.
When: 3 Dec, 2020, 13:30pm (CET) / 12:30pm (GMT)

On behalf of E.ON Drive, GRAFT and GRAFT Brandlab developed a prototype for an ultra-fast charging station. This was further developed into an innovative, extendable system of modules capable of adapting to future requirements. The design creates a high-quality stopover environment that provides both customers and suppliers with a range of functions and additional services not commonly associated with filling stations. E.ON Drive and GRAFT’s design for ultra-fast charging stations breaks new ground by placing emphasis on user experience, thus contributing to the technology’s establishment in society.
