“In the end Barkow Leibinger are bricoleurs as much as they are engineers. . . . There is always an element of inspired performance in bricolage. And as the greatest philosophers in German aesthetics tellus, such play (Spiel) is also essential to art; it opens up a realm for an imaginative response to any question. In the end, this is what Barkow Leibinger offer us all: Spielraum, room for play, space for invention.” Hal Foster
