SOWATORINI landscape: Ultimately, the decision of two friends to take the landscape and life into their own hands. By the time we got to this point, we had worked our way into the open space for a number of years through ideas competitions and art projects. The (learned) attitude: The small size of our office offers the opportunity to do a lot, to experiment a lot. We are constantly working on the landscape anew. We work in temporary formats at the interface to art, in private gardens and in public spaces; across all typologies and scales. What sets us apart is the willingness to search and to take the time for it. To be surprised and not to rely on creative reflexes and experience. The sentence that Prof. Cordula Loidl-Reisch gave us in one of the first hours of our studies still applies: “And you too are called upon to discover the new!”
