The significance of place and craftmanship

The Vorarlberg region and the Bregenzerwald characterise the identity of Dietrich Untertrifaller. Every project that we bring to life carries a piece of this identity within it. Craftsmanship plays a key role in this - not in the sense of skills and qualities, but in the sense of attitude and appreciation of the context, resources and cooperation. In this respect, Vorarlberg symbolises far more than just the beginning of our history. Vorarlberg is sort of our laboratory, where everyone is the product of their environment, where we mutually benefit from each other through respectful interaction, joint discussions and open dialogue at eye level. The underlying aspirations we demand from ourselves and others is a constant element in our architecture and our approach.

Offenheit, Neugier und voneinander Lernen

Als Schüler der Europäischen Schule Brüssel in den 1960er und 1970er Jahren wurde mir in der Oberstufe bewusst, dass fast alle Lehrer der Kriegsgeneration angehörten und sich besonders deswegen von viel Idealismus und großer Toleranz geleitet, in dieser neu gegründeten ersten Europäischen Schule gemeinsam der Idee eines vereinten Europas verschrieben und sich dafür mit ganzer Kraft einsetzten: Öffnung, Neugier, Voreinander lernen in einem bescheidenen Rahmen trotz aller zu der Zeit noch vorhandenen Ressentiments.
