Topotek 1 works in the fields of landscape and architecture, understanding itself as a traveler in the fringe areas of typologies and scales, jaunting into urban design, music, and art. The studio develops concepts through a critical and inquisitive understanding of given realities – contemporary, cultural, and historical. The hybridisation of topics and disciplines, the transmittal and re-contextualisation of design elements, and the staging of scenographic sequences are defining strategies pertinent to the work of Topotek 1.
