Text extracted from the article "Spectrum, background and gradation as design techniques" (a+t 45 Design Techniques), where Philippe Rahm explains his design techniques. Specifically, those applied in the Apartment for a Young Doctor and Jace Eco Park.
a+t 45 Design Techniques looks at different approaches to the creative moment. Authors such as Lacaton & Vassal, Langarita-Navarro, Momoyo Kaiyima and SO-IL reveal their modus operandi, explain how they tackle the project and discuss motivation, devices, influences, justifications, effects and the origins of their design techniques.
