Domus EcoWorld, the UN goals in practice

"Working as an architect and a teacher, over the years Heringer has developed a holistic vision of architecture that respects people and the environment. Seeing the practice as a tool "to build knowledge instead of waste," her projects act as a sort of acupuncture at the socio-economic level."

Domus 100+ (2019)

"The guide comprises 110 profiles of the world's most innovative architecture practices. Driven not by status or number of completed projects - though prolific figures naturally feature among the nominations - the offices are selected by the 10 past editors of Domus, alongside its current one, to give a snapshop of architecture around the world today."

"An exemplar for local-meets-global, Studio Anna Heringer designs three hostels in China creating climate effective, locally sustainable and natural buildings."

"  Es ist doch ein archaisches Grundbedurfnis des Menschen, gebraucht werden zu wollen. Das gilt fur alle Menchen. Jedes kind mochte schon gebraucht werden und hilft sofort, wenn es eine Gelegenheit dazu sieht. Wenn man Architektur in diesem Sinne wirken lassen kann, dann hat man sehr, sehr starke Energhie auf seiner Seite.  "

" It smells good, emanates a feeling of protection and muffles sounds from outside. Clay is a material that touches one emotionally and this is one of the most reliable and fundamental cruiteria for the quality of architecture. " 

Intelligente Architektur | 07-09/2016

AH: (...) systems are changing. And at some point there is no other way, because climate change affects us all and doesn't differentiate either. 
ML: At the moment it does seem as if there are some differential impacts; for example, severe weather attributable to climate change, especially floods, often wreak the greatest damage in the poorer countries. While it is cynical, global warming also destroys future markets for multinationals. Perhaps it brings them to their senses.
