Description For over a decade now, Gmür & Geschwentner Architekten have worked in the area of urban residential development. Exploiting their keen intuition for context and for the needs of users, they design buildings tailored to specific locales, each characterised by two principal traits: a conspicuous delight in narrating the residential biography of the respective town, and a sensual approach to color in space.

Through selected works, the exhibition Secrets of Dwelling: What Drives the Hermit Crab into the Cozy Sanctum? suggests how residential development can be straightforward and functional on the one hand, yet individualistic and personalised on the other.
