SQUARE, University of St.Gallen

Right away Albert Kriemler had the idea to stage this collection at SQUARE, the University of St.Gallen's recently opened forum for the future of learning, designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto with whom he collaborated on the Spring/Summer 2016 collection.

SQUARE is a public place for encounters and dialogue between science, society, business, politics and culture, based on the idea that in the 21st century the exchange across professional and social boundaries is more important than ever before.

Fujimoto's approach to the structure was guided by the idea of an open grid, a building floor plan divided into modular squares, where walls can be moved with ease.

“Thinking of tomorrow,” he says, “I wanted to create spaces to interact and experiment, making the entire building a network of inspiration. A flexible field that allows to be changed as needed.

”A square might seem strict and flat at first glance, yet arranged in a grid, it encourages exploration, creation and play. This flexibility in the grid is what unites Kriemler, Voigt and Fujimoto in their work.
