Domusweb. March 2012. Emilia De Vivo, Alessandra Como, ‘White Cube Bermondsey in London. The Architecture of the Invisible.’

“The new White Cube Bermondsey is an event: it stands out for its importance within the world art market; it stands out within the urban and district transformation process — with a programme which goes far beyond a commercial gallery can encompass: there’re a bookshop, an auditorium, an archive. It stands out (also) for being an architectural work of singular beauty, designed by the Casper Mueller Kneer Architects based in Berlin and London.”

“the desire of Mueller Kneer to draw on the language and materials of the street into this former public facility is reflected in their ingenious and almost brutalist use of concrete in the interior.”

‘Public Life Itself – the work of Mueller Kneer’. Monument 42. Architecture & Design. Australia. Bralic, John Boze. June/July 2001

“The work of Mueller Kneer concentrates on the details and pulse of everyday life that abstract planning edifices never see – but ultimetaly sustain. By confronting a new and compelling urbanity with a collective responsibility, the practice avoids the ideological yesteryear of reactionary historicism, othrodox modernism and deconstructive nihilism. Mueller Kneer projects can be seen as markers, signals or attractors energised by the gatherings of people.”
