Swiss architect Max Dudler has designed a cubic building for the Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection. Situated on the fringe of the picturesque village of Waldenbuch close to Stuttgart, this new building creates a striking cube in the middle of the countryside. It is a striking boundary mark for the village, and may be read as a three-dimensional break between town and country, art and nature. Max Dudler has a reputation for highly idiosyncratic buildings that draw on the tradition of modern Rationalism and the Renaissance, and form something like a counter-programme to the Deconstructionists and the present biomorphic currents in architecture. The richly illustrated architecture book presents the building’s architectural concept in a number of substantial texts.
With contributions by Marli Hoppe-Ritter, Gerda Ridler, Dieter Bartetzko, and Max Dudler.
