Exhibition «The Renewal of Dwelling»

Exhibition «The Renewal of Dwelling»

15.5. till 13.7.2018 – Exhibition «The Renewal of Dwelling» 

Most of the housing stock in Europe was rebuilt between 1945 and 1975. The reasons for this lie in the reconstruction of Europe after the destruction of the Second World War and in the economic boom phase from the late 1950s. The public sector plays a special role in this short historical phase. Thus, the state or state-subsidized institutions had to eliminate the great housing shortage and at the same time had the unique opportunity to realize their (residential) political ideals.

The exhibition "Renewal of Dwelling" focuses on subsidized European multi-storey housing construction between historically grown standards, conventions and norms as well as the search for new forms of living, innovative technical-constructive possibilities and alternative aesthetic ideals.

The illustrated drawings, photographs and documentations were prepared by students of the Technische Universität Darmstadt as part of the research seminar "Living in Europe".

An exhibition of the Department of Design and Housing of the Technical University of Darmstadt. Research project and exhibition conception: Prof. Dr. Elli Mosayebi and Dipl.-Ing. Michael Kraus.

Lecture Roger Boltshauser

Lecture Roger Boltshauser

May 16, 2018, lecture by Roger Boltshauser on rammed earth architecture

After studying architecture in Lucerne and Zurich, Roger Boltshauser founded his own architecture firm Boltshauser Architekten AG in Zurich in 1996. His focus is on a sustainable construction with the material loam through an industrial prefabrication and the development of a new system construction method in earth building.

Roger Boltshauser is also very interested in teaching: He was a lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Anhalt Dessau (DIA) and the University of Applied Sciences (HTW) in Chur, as well as a visiting professor at EPFL Lausanne. In the winter semester 2017/2018 he was a guest lecturer at the Chair of Building and Design at the Technical University of Munich, where students designed projects on the theme of "A lookout tower made of rammed earth for the Ziegelei Museum", which will be on display in this year`s special exhibition.

Book presentation New Schools of Thought

Book presentation New Schools of Thought

June 6, 2018, 19:00 – Book presentation New Schools of Thought. 


Augmenting the field of architectural education /
Architectural education in Europe is increasingly being changed by factors such as political regulations, internationalisation, social and climatic transformation processes and not least by rapid digitalisation. Today, architecture schools are looking at how they can position themselves in this environment through innovative didactic, programmatic and spatial restructuring of their organisations.

Using 18 examples, four of which are presented in detail, the publication New Schools of Thought shows tendencies in architectural education beyond higher education. This book focuses on institutions and initiatives which, in addition to classical higher education, also cover previous education for children and young people, research and public mediation as extended areas of architectural education. This publication examines the conditions that shape these "schools of thought". 


Book presentation /
by the editors Vera Kaps (researcher at the Institute for Architecture and Planning of the University of Liechtenstein) and Peter Staub (director and professor of the Institute for Architecture and Planning of the University of Liechtenstein) and by the publisher Andrea Wiegelmann.

Design symposium Beyond Change

Design symposium Beyond Change

8.–10.3.2018 – SDN Design Research Winter Summit 2018 

Design cannot change anything before it changes itself.

Current discourse in design research, art, cultural studies, media studies, philosophy, and the social sciences is dominated by the much-debated concept of the “Anthropocene,” which claims that we are entering a new geological age determined primarily by the effects of human activity on the planet. It has been used to increase awareness of the negative influence of our actions on climate and the environment, and thus on the terms and conditions of our long-term survival. Against the backdrop of ongoing catastrophe and normalised crisis, the image of designers as problem- solvers and shapers of material-visual culture is constantly evoked. Designers are expected to come to the rescue and to draft speculative scenarios, construct artificial worlds, and develop smart solutions. In short: design is wielded as a catalyst for global change.
But isn’t this image of the designer as an omnipotent problem-solver itself problematic? What if design is not the solution, but very much complicit in the problems it wants to solve? At this point, we feel compelled to ask: How can design truly contribute to a more just society and sustainable forms of living without compromising bottom-up initiatives and marginalising the voices of those who are most directly affected?

The conference “Beyond Change: Questioning the role of design in times of global transformation” is a critical response to the tendency of seeing global crisis first and foremost as a worldwide design competition. How can we reimagine design as an unbounded, queer, and unfinished practice that approaches the world from within instead of claiming an elevated position? How, for once, can we see design as a situated practice instead of turning it into the Global North’s escape and problem-solving strategy?

The conference program includes key notes by Cheryl Buckley, Mia Charlene White, Beatriz Colomina, Kenny Cupers, Kjetil Fallan, Ramia Mazé among others, sessions and discussions on histories of sustainability, slow living, sustainable materials, sustainable urbanism, commons, indigenous knowledge, artisanal design, the politics of objects, radical pedagogies, and more.

24.1.2018, 18.00: Book presentation and exhibition of "Die Geburt eines Stils" by Dorothea Hofmann 


It all begann with a letter. A letter which I wrote in 2001 to the Philip B. Meggs, professor, art historian and graphic designer as well as the editor of A History of Graphic Design – maybe the most important handbook on graphic design history in the USA.
The letter dealt with the fundamentals, origins and influences of the Neue Grafik, which caused a stir internationally from Switzerland in the 1950s. 15 years later, this book was created …

Ernst Keller (*1891–†1968). Teacher and Pioneer of the Swiss Style.


Ernst Keller is referred to as the father of Swiss Style, later International Typographic Style. This is down to the large number of Keller students, who later shaped this Swiss Style and made it famous. Keller’s achievement is shown purely using his oeuvre, primarily his poster designs and his work on lettering and graphic design in architecture.

12.12.2017: Book launch and Discussion. Methodenhandbuch für das Entwerfen in Architektur und Städtebau /

Design processes may initially seem to be unsystematic and lacking in order, but in architecture and urban development, methods are a fundamental part of design practice. And, beyond the design process, they can help to decode the frame conditions of a design, revealing strategies for successful implementation.  

With this in mind, this handbook aims to serve two purposes: to investigate individual methods in a concrete area of application, illustrated using examples, and to focus on the methods themselves. 
In this way, the designer learns to understand his own practice as well as being provided with tools that support the design process.

Book review

Book review

16 September 2016 - Book review on verDICHTen in TEC21  
 
… bietet das Buch «verDICHTen» wertvolle Anregungen, indem es das Potenzial der Lowrise-Typologie aufzeigt. Neben einführenden Essays von Martina Desax und Barbara Lenherr zur Thematik – sowohl mit Bezug auf die aktuelle Diskussion als auch einem Exkurs in die Entstehungsgeschichte dieser Typologie – liegt der Schwerpunkt des Buchs auf einer umfangreichen und umfassend aufbereiteten Sammlung an Referenzen, die viel Inspiration bieten: eine überlegte Auswahl von 55 exemplarischen Lowrise-Siedlungen.

Das Buch ist als gesamtes Format schön gestaltet. Angesichts seines Volumens liegt es angenehm in der Hand, und man kann gut damit arbeiten. Daher ist es nicht nur als Nach­schlagewerk und Inspiration beim Entwerfen, sondern auch als Planungsinstrument interessant und empfehlenswert.

Book review Schiff nach Europa

1 September 2016  –  Book review  «Schiff nach Europa»  on the LANGESOMMER blog

«Es ist ein großes Glück, heute diese originalgetreu nachgedruckte Neuauflage in der Hand halten zu können, denn das Original ist mittlerweile ein Sammlerstück und weitestgehend vergriffen. Auf der Innenseite des Schutzumschlages verbirgt sich eine weitere, schöne Überraschung, denn hier ist der originale Nachdruck des Umschlags von 1957 zu finden.»


Discussion and book presentation

Discussion and book presentation

Wednesday, 17 August, 7pm – Discussion on the occasion of publication of “verDICHTen. Internationale Lowrise-Wohnsiedlungen im Vergleich”
 

What can high-quality inward consolidation at city and canton level look like? This new publication from Triest Verlag showcases a selection of low-rise residential developments that demonstrate alternatives to conventional building typologies.
But what general conditions are required for a new planning practice, how can the process of consolidation succeed?

The discussion is conducted by Regula Iseli (Head Institut Urban Landscape, ZHAW Winterthur), on the podium are:
– Reto Pfenninger (editor, Head Institut Architektur FHNW, Muttenz)
– Roger Boltshauser (Boltshauser Architekten, Zurich)
– Wilhelm Natrup (Amtschef, Amt für Raumentwicklung, Canton of Zurich)
– Adrian Streich (Adrian Streich Architekten, Zurich)

Followed by buffet

We invite you to join us and look forward to a stimulating and insightful evening.

May 2016 – Preview Fall 2016

Attention – we are going to present three new titles in the fall season. We investigate the question, why Swiss Graphic design became so famous, and what was the role of Basel School of Design. And we try to find out what is needed for a public discussion about building culture. By reprinting the «Basler Politische Schriften» we show that there was a broad discussion on city planning almost 60 years ago – and the books, among them achtung: die Schweiz, are still relevant.

Symposium

Symposium

7.–9. Oktober 2015 – Stadt.Land.Schluss
Marktoberdorf im Allgäu

Kann man ein besseres Leben gestalten?
Ein transdisziplinäres Symposium für Gestalter und Entwerfer, Verwalter und Verfechter von urbanen Städten und lebenswerter Provinz. Und alle, die an die Veränderbarkeit und Gestaltbarkeit der Welt glauben!

Weltweit leben immer mehr Menschen in Städten – Großstädte wachsen unaufhörlich. Dies ist auch in Deutschland zu beobachten; die damit verbundene Abwanderung junger Bevölkerungsgruppen vom Land in die Stadt hat in vielen Bundesgebieten bereits spürbare Folgen hinterlassen.

Stadt und Land haben unterschiedliche Vorzüge. Doch während sich in den Städten die urbanen Qualitäten eher weiter ausbauen – dort gibt es immerhin Kulturreferate, Stadtplaner, sind Künstler und Soziologen involviert und engagiert –, gehen auf dem Land die spezifisch ländlichen Qualitäten zusehends verloren, ohne städtische zu gewinnen. Verkehr und Lärm, Zersiedelung und Landverbrauch, befremdliche touristische Projekte (wie die Eventisierung der Berge) abseits der Städte nehmen zu – gleichzeitig wartet man aber vergebens auf ein schönes (Bio-)Cafe, vegetarisches Restaurant oder eine neue Galerie.

Plain and simple graphic design has extraordinary impact in the world today. Rising with striking clarity from the visual opulence that surrounds us posters of high-density precision or the compact and carefully composed sign systems used at airports have an altogether stunning effect. Pioneer work had already launched the triumphant international success of Swiss graphic design back in the 1960s. This was when the founding fathers Josef Müller-Brockmann, Karl Gerstner or Armin Hofmann introduced and developed the scaling down of design and gave the name “Swiss Style” to what has become a highly influential movement.
