Björn Martenson studied architecture at the RWTH Aachen. He started his own office there in 2003. Sonja Nagel and Jan Theissen founded their atelier Nagel Theissen in 2004 in Stuttgart, having studied architecture and design at the University of Stuttgart, the Pratt Institute Brooklin and at the ABK Stuttgart. In 2010 Martenson, Nagel and Theisen established their joint office AMUNT. For their first project, the residential house JustK in Thübingen, they received the Weissenhof - Architecture Prize for young architects and the Hugo-Häring-Prize. House Schreber, built in 2011 near Aachen, was selected for the German Contribution to the 13th exhibition la Biennale di Venezia 2012 and received the German Award for Architecture in 2013.

Since last year Studio EAST (EPFL/ENAC) has been organising a series of open lectures with the aim to present individual practical approaches of architects from different European countries. Each semester 5 offices are invited to present 3 of their projects. Those 3 projects are thought of as milestones that should represent the parcours of the office. The aim is not only to present architectural interventions but also to focus on the internal and external conditions of their development: the backstage of the architectural fabrication. Furthermore the insight into the different working methods and the story behind the formation of the office provides a good opportunity to learn about the different ways to start and lead an architectural office.

Previously 5X3 organised lectures by Salto Architects - Tallinn, AWG - Vienna, Boltshauser - Zürich, Klaus en Kaan - Amsterdam and Staab Architekten - Berlin. For the upcoming semester Studio EAST is pleased to announce 5 new lectures by Barbas Lopes Arquitectos - Lisbon, Bruno Fioretti Marquez Architekten - Berlin, GENS association libérale d'architecture - France, Fuhrimann Hächler Architekten - Zürich and AMUNT Architekten - Aachen/Stuttgart. Starting this semester a new collaboration with the Forum d’Architectures de Lausanne will provide the opportunity to open the lectures to a wider public and to create a new link between students, architects and the general public. The lectures will be held in English (with the exception of the lecture by GENTS) followed by an open discussion.

La série de conférences publiques 5x3, organisée par le Studio EAST (EPFL-Section d’Architecture), vise présenter l’approche pratique singulière d’architectes. Chaque semestre, 5 bureaux présentent 3 projets: la toute première réalisation et deux autres projets comme les jalons d’un parcours.
Au cours de leur conférence les architectes présentent leurs interventions architecturales, tout comme les coulisses de leur fabrication. Ces conférences sont aussi une occasion de découvrir comment, dans différents contextes et selon des géométries variables, les architectes invités ont constitué leur bureau et comment ils l’ont fait évoluer.
