Super Constellation: The propeller as the wheel of modernity
The discovery of aeronautics and space travel with its experiences, is considered one of the most influential phenomena, when it comes to the conception of space in our epoch. The paradigms of their technological progress and their interactions are a catalyst for new concepts in modern art and architecture.
As one of the most far-reaching developments, their invention reshaped the mechanical worldview of a machine age in the 20th century, that has had a profound effect on our conception of modern civilisation, where it continues to this day.

On Einsteins general theory of relativity: A possibility for space-time architecture
Einstein claimed that gravity is not a force, but is nothing more than the curvature of space-time caused by the mass of a body itself. Heavy mass is equivalent to inertial mass, or in other words, free fall and weightlessness are the same thing. Not only moving clocks do run slower, but clocks also run slower under the effect of gravity!
If you watch at the diagram with the automobile, then in both cases, the driver is pressed into the seat. In the left-hand example by the acceleration and on the right-hand side by the influence of gravity, or the curvature of space-time caused by the mass of the body. So according to Einstein’s relativity, time passes more slowly for both drivers?
Well however, the celestial bodies is a design research of FETTES BROT and it is about to translate Einsteinian relativity into an architectural language for building design by using space, time and architecture.

Expert lecture series: A trilogy of architecture in a stunning time
The study of architecture is interdisciplinary and therefore requires input from a lot of disciplines. It needs feedback from many directions and the work of students must be critically questioned. In order to contribute to this development process for the next generation of young architects, we are involved with our key references in form of expert lectures at various universities.
Popup architecture: Running ideas for moving environments
FETTES BROT is an accelerator and develops design ideas for innovative concepts of urban interventions and built environments, with interaktive and communicative spaces, out of sustainable and environmentally conscious structures, in dynamic and contemporary forms.
Interdisciplinary spectrum: architecture between art and science
The field of architecture is interdisciplinary and our built environment offers a broad spectrum of demands, that are placed on it from the outside. In order to be able to better fulfill all these spectrum of criteria, a radical rapid design strategy through cross-media, is required in the handling of architecture between art and science.
