Philosophy: The poetics of industrial construction. "The ability to bring the universal and the concrete into accord is a strong point developed by gerner°gerner plus. They are perfectly able to tune their abstract ideal of constructive modernity, as it were, to clients´ wishes and substantial requirements. The technical brilliance shown by their fine frameworks is not set in absolute terms, it is not a priore. Rather, it develops from the potential inherent in a given occasion. Their dynamics are sharpened in the emergent obstructions of pragmatics, the limitations of which are demonstrated and shifted, without applying provoking dogmatics. Their avant-gardism is ideologically independent, attached neither to a material nor a geometry. They build in steel as well as in wood, be it curved or edged. It is primarily decisive to fully work and to integrate the concomitant advantages into customers´ programs: short construction periods, dry assemblings, reduced costs and material, flexibility in building and occupancy, efficiency and easiness of spatial atmospheres." Otto Kapfinger, Emerging Architecture - 10 more austrians, 2002.
