Plastic electricity pylons reinforced with fibreglass, a pavilion shaped by gravity and a sound-absorbing office wall are just some of the unusual designs architect Dietmar Köring and his architectural research office Arphenotype are known for around the world. His work looks revolutionary to some, but is in fact evolutionary. Arphenotype creates a relationship between “architectural research” and “phenotype”, the outward appearance of a human being, and refers to the reciprocal influence the two have on each other. This individual idea paid off as Dietmar Köring’s work has been internationally published and exhibited.
