The work of AFF is based on the understanding of architecture as an object, something sculptural. This view manifests itself already during the development process of their projects. AFF’s work develops through a process of designing in which they use trusted procedures. For AFF, this means: Producing and simultaneously constantly deciding, correcting, refining. Every step can be a new source of inspiration; every intermediate result creates new reactions and is part of an evolution.
But, where does the process begin? Where does it end? AFF would like to show the very beginning: It is the memories and the impressions that, at a first glance do not seem to have any influence on decisions, but indeed play a role beyond the beginning of a project. The process is determined by objects and images that have a strong character and their own past. It is the mysteriousness of the stories behind the objects that provokes AFF: with their own logic and charm the loved objects and images entice to anew.
