These are the questions addressed in the panel discussion moderated by Dr. Jutta Braun, ZZF Potsdam and Zentrum deutsche Sportgeschichte (Center for German Sports History). gmp founding partner Volkwin Marg will be present: together with architect Philipp Dittrich, Bürgerinitiative Jahnsportpark, Gerald Karpa, club chronologist at 1. FC Union Berlin, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Pfeil and Dr. Veronika Springmann, director of the Berlin Sports Museum, he will talk about the role of Berlin's stadiums in democracy and dictatorship and their symbolic power today in terms of remembrance culture.

Evelyn Pasdzierny at the information event on the framework-plan city entrance Elbbrücken

After successfully participating in the trial planning process, gmp was commissioned to produce the masterplan as well as the detailed plans of individual sectors.

50 percent of general global waste is produced by the construction industry - in particular, demolition.  The promise of the new often prevails over the preservation of the built environment. It is time to take a new direction. To re-evaluate a complex architectural strategy with the renovation of existing buildings and their requirements to combine sustainable aspirations with an awareness of historical significance. Based on two completed projects  - one in China and the other one in Germany - this presentation will help to demonstrate the benefits of renovation projects under varying conditions and within different cultural backgrounds.

"Magdeburg - City of Modernism" (in german) is the subject of a lecture evening in Magdeburg on Friday, September 6, which is organised by the Saxony-Anhalt Chamber of Architects together with the Architekten- und Ingenieur-Verein zu Magdeburg von 1876 e.V. and the state capital Magdeburg. The year 2019 is marked by the Bauhaus centennial. Under the motto #moderndenken, a lecture evening recalls the time of upheaval, when "the Bauhaus set a precedent" in Magdeburg.  The focus will be on two buildings of modernism and post-war modernism respectively: the Stadthalle and the Hyparschale. Built in 1927 for the German Theatre Exhibition, the Stadthalle has always been a scene of contemporary history.  Destroyed during the Second World War and thereafter rebuilt, it’s an import site in the minds of the citizens of Magdeburg. Now the building is to be renovated and expanded. Christian Hellmund will talk about this in his lecture. Additionally, he will give further information about the planned construction work on the Hyparschale by Ulrich Müther, which is located in the immediate vicinity. Another speaker will be the art historian Sabine Ullrich.

What opportunities are there for cross-generational living under one roof? Which ones for the care of young families and the elderly? What role does architecture play in this? How must the requirements of politics and legislators react to the changing conditions of our environment? In addition to Volkwin Marg, the following speakers can also be seen on the podium:  Prof. Klaus Schäfer, Söavis Poczebutas, Kim Wortelkamp and Rüdiger Ulbricht.

Exhibition
Exhibition ”A Dialogue”

What happens when an architecture firm and a fashion label work together creatively? The exhibition Architecture x Fashion - A Dialogue answers this question through an interdisciplinary encounter. The fashion designers of the Chinese label ICICLE were inspired by the commercial buildings of the architects von Gerkan, Marg und Partner (gmp) to create a collection. Through the medium of photography, the two arts are juxtaposed, and conceptual affinities are revealed. Exhibits of the fashion collection, as well as fabric and building material samples, complement the photographs and allow visitors to haptically experience the second and third skins of human beings which fashion and architecture are widely referred to as. The exhibition was on display in Shanghai in 2018. Now it will be shown as part of the “Hamburger Architektursommer 2019” and is also part of the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of gmp's construction activities in China.

When: June 28 to July 12, 2019, 7:00 pm
