Information

Martin Spengler explores structures and patterns of order. The motifs for his works – contemporary cityscapes, skyscrapers, facades, towers and Gothic cathedrals – he finds in image files and sketches that serve as models for detailed preliminary drawings. Spengler is especially interested in the temporality and the fragility of seemingly architecture, and its function to represent social utopias and boundaries.
