„Architektur ist, unabhängig davon, wie profan oder anspruchsvoll der Zweck ist, dem sie dient, letztlich die Gesamtheit der durch Menschenhand veränderten Umwelt und damit eine kulturelle Leistung der Menschen.“ - Meinhard von Gerkan 1982 in: Die Verantwortung des Architekten

galerie OPEN is delighted to present the group exhibition “Human Architecture” with works from Katja Buchholz, Florian Japp, Jens Heller, Rebecca Loyche, Stephan Sahm, Yassine 'YAZE' Mekhnache and Filip Zorzor.
Human Architecture is an exhibition showing the relations(lines) between art and architecture, artists and architects.
The artists start their ideas working with sketches and the architects with their blueprints, both wanting to for fill either a physical or an intellectual need.
Viewing the table that is made by Katja Buchholz, one can see a wonderful human invention, where humans can meet and many ideas come alive.

We can look at “Human architecture” from two different sides.
You have the architecture which you can see everywhere where humans are living, the city, the roads, the houses, the interior and so on. All this has a physical purpose and serves a physical human need.
And everyone gets influenced by this human landscape in some way. Artists and architects takes what is there and put it in to new ideas and works.

The other side of “Human architecture” is how we humans create an environment in our own eyes, and also how we make new artificial needs.
This we can see in the pictures of Stephan Sahm. They look pretty, but they are the farthest away we can get from the natural environment of mice or hamster. It is a “need” made to please humans and in this case the consumer. And this might be a very accurate image of our society?!
