We see architecture as the science of structure, one that encompasses everything : a piece of furniture, a house, a form, a person, history, time.

...we re a think tank for classic modern architecture. One could also call us a "traveling circus". Wandering to take in the impressions on site unadulterated and to work with.

Tired of working in anonymous containers, we asked ourselves how we could create a mobile, modular architecture that could respond quickly to personal, social, political and, currently, climatic changes and even be taken along for the ride. Furthermore, it should be energy-autonomous, ecological and circular, as well as represent an interesting impact in its surrounding. A high demand for a single object. But this idea could be successfully realized and led to an inhabitable sculpture as a combination of architecture and art.

Concerning the environmental crisis, its ethical and social implications and its focus on areas related to spatial culture: Module #3070 is not a "romantic tinyhouse", but rather an architectural system that springs from a verified pragmatic way of thinking, an attitude, that withstands the demands of daily life, that works architecturally, economically and ecologically, but also socially and societally. The modular system allows a wide range of applications: from individual houses to settlements. Further, the module is designed to fit the load capacity of a 40-ton truck as well as a 44" shipping container.

Currently, Module #3070 is temporarily located on an unused part of a sawmill. It serves us as a laboratory for architectural research. In addition to the above, Module #3070 was realized in France in the context of the term "Terrain Vague" as a project who addresses questions about the usability of wastelands, respectively how they can be sustainably socio-economically and ecologically recycled.
