Berlin, Buenos Aires, Vienna, Asunción: Jasper Architects builds on two different continents, bringing together diverse contexts, languages, and building traditions across divergent time zones. Founder Martin Jasper most recently became known in Europe for his sculptural transformation of a former department store, close to East Berlin’s former central train station Ostbahnhof, into a multifunctional office landscape. In South America, he realized the resort ENAÍ in the Peruvian Amazon and the residential high-rise 12PARC in Ecuador, as well as the Nestlé headquarters in Quito. The designs of his prize-winning firm are characterized by the exploration of new working and residential environments and the interrelation between local and universal architectural languages. This trilingual monograph presents the firm's transatlantic activities to an international public for the first time: built and unbuilt, ranging from a slender high-rise to typological studies all the way through to timber structures in the tropics.
