"the städelschule's pedagogy begins where that of most other schools ends - at the point where a program of exploration takes on rigor, risk and clear direction. the work in the städelschule is inspired, radical and bold, but most importantly, it is collective on a remarkably relaxed and intimate level. it is one of the few schools today where speculation is a requirement, not an occasional event."

"CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE IS FULLY SATURATED WITH TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS OF ALL KINDS AND SIMPLY BEGS AN EQUIVALENT ADVANCE IN DESIGN THINKING AND AESTHETIC MAKING."

JOHAN BETTUM

"SAC isn’t about steering young architects in any one particular direction. It concerns itself with providing the best possible balance of essential theoretical and creative knowledge on an individual basis along with pragmatic know-how. The goal is to provide the best possible basis for each individual to prepare for whichever avenue to pursue in the future."

BEN VAN BERKEL

"...only four, five or six schools in the world really define themselves completely in terms of being a kind of experimental laboratory for the future of the discipline, and the städelschule is one of these."

Mark Wigley

SAC Journal

The SAC Journal is a periodical that documents and critically reviews projects and theoretical discussions within contemporary, architectural design culture. The projects and texts published relate to the ongoing interests and ambitions of SAC. The publication series attempts to contribute to the discipline of architecture on a critical and discursive level. Read More
