Andreas Rost (*1962 in Weimar, Deutschland) has become known for his, predominantly black and white, photographs documenting big-city life. While Rost had partially renounced on a camera viewfinder for his reflections of the big-cities, he takes a different approach with his photographs of Oscar Niemeyer's largely unknown work in Algier - everything has been carefully illustrated.
For the first time ever, Andreas Rost researches the Université des Sciences et de la Technologie Houari Boumédiène in Algier, which has been little known even among architects, with the eye of a photographer. Rost's photographs are testimony of a grand design of a failed utopia.

Art and Architecture can be interpreted as a form of expression how humankind asserts itself in a certain environment, and the challenges it implies.
We have put together a series of artworks by international artists, who explore and reinterpret this interplay from different perspectives, for the »100 Häuser« magazine in the form of a limited edition.
As the only German-speaking magazine »100 Häuser« presents the diversity of country-specific building culture. 100 projects by 100 architects provide a multifaceted overview of the different designs and diverse distinctive elements of a country.
