PartnerIl Prisma Milano - Wilford Schupp Stuttgart
An original sanatorium designed by architects Gropius & Schmieden, became the new headquarter of BBraun, Melsungen, Germany.
The inspiration: a medical facility for long ‐ term illness characterized by wide rooms and bright south insulations. An high value natural area provided the best ventilation… the best environment for natural fresh ventilation.
In order to be able to easily read and deal with the long term, an architectural form must have Order as its first objective. It is much more difficult to remain sober and attempt a dialogue by taking a critical distance with the building, while designing a new proposal in an historic building; it is much more difficult but allows you to get out of the chaos of the 'rockers of architecture', and therefore to be truly recognized as the authors of a serious and thoughtful reflection. Le Corbusier said that 'the work of art is a game of which the author has created the rule ... the author has created the rule but it must be able to appear to those who try to play'. If someone were to try to find a rule in contemporary eccentricities, they would find the rule of unreadable disorder, of the ghost of diversity in itself that belongs to the world of communication.
BBraun is a serious proposal avoiding the chaos.
