FOC TALENT: Joerg Lonkwitz

About Joerg Lonkwitz

Hi, my name is Jörg. I'm an architect and I live and work in amsterdam. I think, design is an artistic space that is fluid enough to accept the flux of ideas, shapes and form. It deals with the ephemeral and goes beyond the rigid space that we think reality is. I believe design and architeture, that are more complex systems like a cloud or a swarm instead of a box. I really believe that in future it will be normal to 3d pint products and to personalize design more and more. Working as an architect, the freedom to create 3d printed products is really nice. The building industry works (mostly) with the same techniques and methods like 50 years ago. Nor do the architects: we work with very complex 3d models, which than has to be transferred to 2d plans. A long and tough challenge. So lets just feel the freedom!
