Sounds for the Future • Open House

Welcome to SUM

 

Thanks for visiting Sum! Turning 50 is something special. We created a temporarily exhibition space within our own micro cosmos - so that you can experience our offices. On the basis of Recent Work and Future Thinking we want to guide you through some general themes like 50 years of making and expertise, our entrepreneurial partnerships, urban design; walking in the city, our research on urban thinking and society, the continuity of livable, cultural and artistic environments, and the office of the architect today. These themes are central in our projects and daily work. We hope you will enjoy our Open House and you will be part of our Sounds for the Future.
