Converting ideas into design guidelines, from the abstract photograph of stacked objects to a constructive detail, gives the project a narrative to follow, and generates coherence at the different scales of a project, beyond the pragmatism of construction.

While the approach of each project is specific, from the observation of the context to the transcription of the program, the works are linked in a continuous experiment on structure and composition.

Gathering visual references, as well as producing images, through the medium of photography and collage, is a constant part of the design process. It allows to draw and communicate ideas of space, atmosphere and identity.

From the German tangieren, “to affect, to touch on” and its relation to the definition of the tangent in geometry, the studio places itself in a back-and-forth between contextual reinterpretation and contrast, pursuing its own architectural language.

Raphael Kadid trained as an architect in the office of Diener & Diener (2012-2018) and Buchner Bründler (2018-2021) in Basel. Alongside practice he currates the Daily Dose art and architecture newsletter since 2013, and runs Raphael Kadid Objects, founded in 2020 in Basel.
