DBZ - Der Entwurf – Portfolio

The November edition of Der Entwurf, published by the Deutsche BauZeitschrift, covers the topic “Portfolio”. Florian Mähl, one of osd’s managers, is visible on the cover. His contribution about “dare more passion” is printed on pages 20/21.

“Our office grew over the last years, and we engaged some entrants as well. Not only job advertisements, even speculative applications were successful. In the retroperspective, I figured out that every colleague we hired over the last years was conspicuous about one quality: passion.”
