Architectours: Where FSB handles are used.Door knobs and handles are frequently hardly noticed – except where their form seems somehow out of place or where they annoy users by inadequate functional quality. This brings us to one of many points that architecture in general and door furniture in particular have in common. For us at FSB a door handle is no less than a type of architecture in miniature. Moreover, it is the actual door-opener leading us to the architectural interior.Liechtenstein National Forum and Parliament, VaduzThe “Government District” in Vaduz had been the object of urban planning activities as recently as the late 1980s - on that occasion Luigi Snozzi won with his “Polis” submission in which he lent the ensemble comprising the National Museum, the Administrator’s House and the “Great House” a structural framework as the seat of government. The flank of the adjoining castle hill was to be framed by a curving structure and the public buildings - St. Florin being added later - were to be linked by a newly fashioned square. The present draft takes up these basic themes and - in part at least - retraces Snozzi’s “spatial hillside” in the curving body of the administrative wing. The “High House” is an archetypal house on the outside yet, with its round table, clearly advocates assembly “around a centre” on the inside. It stands self-confidently next to the government building in a form of composite materiality that nevertheless has a monolithic effect.
