Home Edition 2020 

Let’s keep the cultural life alive!  As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years.

TALK #31: Peter Cook
This talk is kindly presented by swissFineLine.

AnA Barcelona 01 – For our first event in Barcelona on September 27, 2018, we welcomed three very inspiring architects to the stage of the Auditori Conservatori Liceu. Italian Architect, Benedetta Tagliablue, Spanish architect, Andrés Jaque, and British architect, professor, and writer, Sir Peter Cook.

This talk is presented by swissFineLine. 
Just as our speakers do in their talks, swissFineLine focuses on absolute transparency. This is why the architectural office of Dirk Henning Braun used their products for this villa near Düsseldorf, where an essential aspect of architectural design is the transparency of the house. A single-family house which does not comply with the standard.

The filigree sliding windows with their highly insulating aluminum edging that fits seamlessly into walls, floors and ceilings connect the exterior with the interior on the ground floor. The architects used the electrically operated panoramic windows as a substitute for walls and thus created a continuous space. This futuristic home is the architectural proof that with the right products there is unlimited design freedom and maximum comfort. swissFineLine offers over-size windows and, thanks to their skilled team’s creativity, customized versions of their products to help you make the impossible possible.
