Lecture by Christian Hellmund

"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.

A panel discussion with Volkwin Marg in Worpswede

On August 21, the Club Union of Worpswede e.V. is hosting a panel discussion with Volkwin Marg and four other speakers. They will talk about "Concepts of contemporary building and urban planning" - a hot topic because of  distinct challenges for the present and future. In addition to urban planning and architecture, the speakers will examine social and political aspects of construction and urban planning. They will also address overarching issues as well as those areas of life that directly affect people in their daily routines:

Where are our urban and rural living spaces heading? Do we have the right concepts for the near and long-term future and do these adequately reflect our needs for an integrative life with work and leisure, nature and transport, supply and education? 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. Dr. Ursula Siefken-Schülte, deputy chairwoman of the Club Union of Worpswede e.V. will moderate the meeting.

Quality and future viability are the terms that translate sustainability best into construction. Since its foundation in 2007, the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB e.V.) has become one of the most important initiators and drivers of this topic in Europe. An essential part of this is the certification of sustainable buildings, interiors and districts.

At an event organised by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB e.V.) and the Hamburg Chamber of Architects, Urs Wedekind will use the German House in Vietnam as en example to show how certification can help to plan and construct a sustainable building. Another speaker will be Dr. Christine Lemaitre, Managing Director of the DGBN, who will present the most important background information on the association and the DGNB certification process.

Exhibition of the results of the aac workshop in Dresden

The spring workshop of the aac Academy for Architectural Culture was focused on the Japanische Palais—the last element in Dresden’s museum landscape that still requires refurbishment. Under the guidance of Meinhard von Gerkan and Stephan Schütz, the scholarship students developed designs that open the building towards Neustadt and the River Elbe, and convert the Japanische Palais into a contemporary “working collection” in which the general public is involved in the process of artistic creation. From August 15, 2019, the results will be shown in the exhibition entitled Visions for the Future at the Japanische Palais in Dresden.

In 1560, Elector August I founded the Kunstkammer Dresden, which was to become the founding part of Dresden’s State Art Collection (SKD), housed in Germany’s oldest museum network. From the very beginning, the Kunstkammer had been conceived of as a place for exhibitions and as a workshop, which combined everything from craft items to fine art objects, and a collection of scientific objects, under one roof. August provided tools, books, and materials to craftsmen and artists with the idea of gradually growing the collection. This approach to a “working collection” was again the key idea at the aac workshop. Before the workshop, the design brief had been established in cooperation with Dresden’s state museums and adapted to the local conditions. The scholarship students were given the task of developing concepts for the last of Dresden’s museums that still requires refurbishment and, in this context, of opening the building more towards the city.

The seminar started with a three-day excursion to Dresden, during which Prof. Dr. Marion Ackermann, General Director of the SKD, introduced the concept for the Japanische Palais. The participants were able to visit the building and to gain an impression of its current condition, and to discuss initial questions and design approaches with Noura Dirani, Officer for Trans-Cultural Methods at the SKD, and Michael John, Technical Manager at the Department for Construction, Technology, and Security. With its central position at the northern bank of the River Elbe, within close proximity to the Zwinger and the Semperoper, the building is an important element of Dresden’s museum landscape. Back in Hamburg, work on the design started in earnest in the aac studios. Each of the four teams of four students was mentored by an experienced tutor. The comprehensive teaching program was rounded off with informative talks and rounds of critical appraisal with guest professors Antonio Cruz of Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos in Seville, Prof. Dr.-Ing- h.c. HG Merz of hg merz architects and museum designers, and Prof. José Gutierres Marques of Bruno Fioretti Marquez architects.

The participants were asked to reflect a multi-layered requirement profile in their designs: in addition to the customary modern museum infrastructure with a foyer, café, and service rooms, functional rooms for four areas were defined in accordance with the ICOM standard (International Council of Museums). These functions are collecting, preserving, researching, and exhibiting/conveying. In the final presentation the groups showed four completely different results: Group 1 opened up the first-floor level, thus creating a throughroute for citizens. Group 2 arranged the starting point of the visiting tour above ground level, where there is a view over Dresden. Group 3 placed a sculptural glass structure in the inner courtyard serving as a roofedover access point. Group 4 doubled up the space in the interior courtyard by introducing a second level. This created a roofed internal space with another outside space above.

The results were first exhibited in the studios of the aac, and—from August 15 until November 3, 2019—can be viewed at the Japanische Palais in Dresden under the title Visionen für die Zukunft (Visions for the Future) as part of the current special exhibition Die Erfindung der Zukunft (The Invention of the Future).

Jubilee exhibition "20 years gmp in China"

Architecture and fashion have a lot in common. Their most fundamental and important function as a protective covering has caused them to be described as people's second and third skin. This protective function is immediately followed by aesthetics, which finds expression in materials, color, and form. For both clothing and architecture, today's world offers an almost inexhaustible repertoire of design possibilities that brings forth a wide variety of trends. But it is precisely in this diversity that works related to one another are created. That is what happened in the case of gmp and ICICLE, who initially met in the roles of architect and client. The previously little-known industrial architecture of gmp in China inspired the fashion designers to create an entire collection. In the creative process, both parties discovered ever more common ground: With the goal of creating timeless and purist designs, both strive for strong silhouettes that emphasize structure and form. Both ICICLE and gmp employ high quality materials and design and production processes that target a long service life and thus promote sustainability. The medium of photography is used in the exhibition to

juxtapose the two arts, thereby revealing conceptual affinities.
