Von Marc-Antoine Laugiers Urhutte bis zu den vegetabilen, von der Natur inspirierten Formen, mit denen Architekten heute experimentieren, wie Blobs, Moebiusbander oder wabenfoermige Strukturen - die Natur spielt in der Gestaltung der menschlichen Umwelt eine wichtige Rolle. In seiner vierten Ausgabe widmet sich 91, das Magazin mit dem etwas anderen Blickwinkel, dem Thema der Natur in der Architektur. Philip Ursprung gibt einen umfassenden UEberblick uber das Verhaltnis von Architektur und Natur, das alles andere als etwas Selbstverstandliches ist. "Pflanzen und Architektur" - so lautet der Titel einer Zeichnung des japanischen Architekten Junya Ishigami, mit der er dem Betrachter eine Architektur vor Augen fuhrt, die der Natur so nahe kommt, dass die Unterschiede zu verschwinden scheinen. Dem ganz persoenlichen Verhaltnis von Architekten zu ihren Pflanzen geht Ausgabe 4 im Orchideenlabor von Jean-Philippe Vassal in Paris nach. Ausserdem besucht 91 Benedetta Tagliabue und ihren opulenten Garten im Hof ihres Stadthauses in Barcelona. Die Landschaftsarchitektin Martha Schwartz erzahlt 91 von ihrem ganz persoenlichen Wunschprojekt: einem Landschaftspark in Nevada zur Revitalisierung aufgelassener Goldminen. From Marc-Antoine Laugier's primitive hut to the plantlike structures inspired by nature that architects are experimenting with today - such as blobs, Mobius strips, and honeycomb structures - nature plays an important role in the design of the human environment. In its fourth issue, 91 (the magazine with the slightly different perspective) tackles the subject of nature in architecture. Philip Ursprung offers a wide-ranging survey of the relationship between architecture and nature, which is anything but self-explanatory. Plants and Architecture is the title of a drawing by the Japanese architect Junya Ishigami, which presents the viewer with an architectural creation so close to nature that the differences seem to vanish. Issue #4 pursues the highly personal relationship between architects and their plants in Jean-Philippe Vassal's orchid house in Paris. In addition, 91 pays a visit to Benedetta Tagliabue and her opulent garden in the courtyard of her townhouse in Barcelona. The landscape architect Martha Schwartz tells 91 about her highly personal dream project: a landscaped park in Nevada that would revitalize abandoned gold mines.
