Since 2001 Sebastian Cremers, Tania Prill and Alberto Vieceli have been working together in Zurich under the name Prill Vieceli Cremers, producing work for reputable cultural institutions, a selection of fine artists and working on personal projects ranging from the cute to the bizarre. With an approach to design that could easily be branded experimental they attack each project with an impressive vigour, tailoring their methodology to the project at hand – meaning their portfolio is loaded with fantastically diverse work.
This particular project documents the life of The House Of Science in Bamiyan, Afghanistan, a university erected by three Swiss architects in 2006. The volume serves as an exploration of their first six years, their motivations for setting up the institution and the cultural exchanges that are still taking place to this day. For a document that chronicles the results of a social experiment it’s as visually arresting at the story of the House of Science is compelling, and that is no small feat.
