FLORIAN BEIGEL PDF

A highly poetic vision of the relationship of buildings to spaces informed all his work. That concern was vividly embodied by the building that first brought him to international attention. Commissioned in by a radical East London theatre company, the Half Moon Theatre was the antithesis of the traditional gilded and velvet-curtained performance venue. Assigned to work on a hotel in Oxford — a project they judged creatively unrewarding — Beigel and Frey quit and set up in partnership, soon securing the commission for a gallery for Fischer Fine Art in central London. Their proposal to integrate a large cage stocked with live birds was one idea that their client declined to realise, but the project was a success and Wolfgang Fischer subsequently invited Beigel and Frey to design a summerhouse at Grundlsee in Austria Beigel turned to teaching as a means of subsiding his practice, and in became a tutor at the architecture school of the Polytechnic of North London.

A highly poetic vision of the relationship of buildings to spaces informed all his work. That concern was vividly embodied by the building that first brought him to international attention. Commissioned in by a radical East London theatre company, the Half Moon Theatre was the antithesis of the traditional gilded and velvet-curtained performance venue.

Assigned to work on a hotel in Oxford — a project they judged creatively unrewarding — Beigel and Frey quit and set up in partnership, soon securing the commission for a gallery for Fischer Fine Art in central London.

Their proposal to integrate a large cage stocked with live birds was one idea that their client declined to realise, but the project was a success and Wolfgang Fischer subsequently invited Beigel and Frey to design a summerhouse at Grundlsee in Austria Beigel turned to teaching as a means of subsiding his practice, and in became a tutor at the architecture school of the Polytechnic of North London.

He maintained a central role at the institution now London Metropolitan University for the next 46 years, helping to set the agenda of a school that became the most progressive training ground for architects in Britain.

The Architecture Research Unit at London Metropolitan University, which was headed by Beigel and his personal and professional partner, Philip Christou After German reunification, ARU won a series of competitions for large-scale urban plans on former industrial and military sites outside Leipzig and Berlin.

The rug represented the longer-term interventions, the picnic those of shorter lifespan. These projects drew the attention of Seung H-Sang, a leading South Korean architect who had secured the commission for a new business district on the periphery of Seoul, and in he invited ARU to collaborate on the design of Paju Book City, which today accommodates more than publishing companies. The design bears comparison with that of the Half Moon Theatre in its conjuring of a quasi-urban atmosphere through the conception of individual classrooms as houses around a communal boulevard.

Passionate and on occasions combustible, Beigel was blessed with a keen sense of humour and enormous warmth. He is survived by his partner Philip.

Florian Beigel

Photograph: Jonathan Lovekin Florian Beigel, who has died aged 76, was a hugely influential architect and teacher. For more than 40 years, Architecture Research Unit, his studio at the Polytechnic of North London now London Metropolitan University , educated successive generations of architects both directly and vicariously, through his compelling lectures, writings and drawings, its numerous, beautiful publications, and a small but important body of built work. A significant influence on many well-known practitioners, in the UK and internationally, ARU was also instrumental in transforming its host institution from a rather minor London architecture school into an internationally respected one. He found the city in which he was to live for the rest of his life animated at that moment by both student protest and Beatlemania — an intoxicating mix of politics and pleasure. Radically cosmopolitan, it represented for this idealistic young architect a place to avoid the inevitable limitations of conventional practice, and to search instead for new ways to think about and experience the world. However, it was an appointment in , to teach at the Polytechnic of North London that provided him with the physical and intellectual space to properly address his ambitions.
