Book Description:
The new research institute for 300 international scientists in the "Biopolis" Dresden provides the ideal frame for the convergence of avant-garde architecture, contemporary art and progressive science. How do cells divide? How do they communicate? How do they grow into a living organism? For such research the renowned Finnish architects Heikkinen-Komonen, who built the acclaimed Finnish embassy in Washington, created a "place where the postgenomic age can begin" (Die Zeit). Complex structures and subtle colour effects provide a contrast to the clinical coolness on the border between technology and life. George Steinmann, an artist from Berne, has been active for more than fifteen years in northern Europe, Canada and Switzerland. He has combined the procedures of natural science with various media to form this artistic project "metalogue", integrating cellular and genetic processes to form striking visual art. In large format illustrations and texts by internationally renowned authors, the gentle bridges between the different disciplines are investigated.
