Tÿpo St. Gallen

5.–7. November 2021, Tÿpo St. Gallen «Intuition»

3-tägige Designkonferenz, Triest ist mit einem Büchertisch dabei.

Die 6. Ausgabe der Tÿpo St. Gallen beschäftigt sich mit der «Intuition». Jeder von uns kennt das: Man trifft eine Entscheidung aus dem Bauch heraus, ohne lange darüber nach­zudenken oder ohne sich weitere Informa­tionen zu beschaffen. Einfach, weil man ein gutes oder schlechtes Gefühl dabei hat. Egal, ob im Privat- oder Berufs­leben – Projekte und Vorhaben werden spontan zugesagt und wenn sie gelingen, konnte man sich wieder einmal auf sein Bauch­gefühl verlassen … Umgekehrt kann uns ein ungutes Gefühl auch vor Ent­täuschungen schützen. Soweit die Theorie …

Aber wie sehen unsere Sprecherinnen und Referenten das? Wie treffen sie ihre Entschei­dungen – ist das Bauch­gefühl unfehlbar und ist eine intuitive Fest­legung wirklich unbedacht? «Intuition» gewährt Einblicke in spannende Projekt­geschichten, zeigt, dass man auch grandios scheitern kann mit seinem Bauch­gefühl und dass eine instinktive Eingebung keines­falls irrational sein muss.

Die Tÿpo St. Gallen versteht sich als Forum für Fachleute und design­affine Menschen, sucht und fördert den Austausch von Referierenden und Publikum. Neben Referaten gibt es viel Zeit für Gespräche und ein inspi­rierendes Rahmen­programm.

Podcast «Stadt machen»

Podcast «Stadt machen»

Stadt machen! 

Ein Podcast zur Frage, was öffentliche Räume sind, welche Bedeutung sie für die Stadt haben und wer sie eigentlich macht: die Architektin, der Planer, oder diejenigen, die sich Stadträume aneignen. In «Stadt machen!» fragen Philippe Koch und Simon Mühlebach, vom Institut Urban Landscape an der Zürcher Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaften, warum Tags in öffentlichen Räumen wichtig sind, welche Bedeutung Schwellenräume für unser Verständnis von Öffentlichkeit haben, und was wir uns unter Figurationen von Öffentlichkeit vorstellen müssen. Das alles anhand von vier ausgewählten Plätzen in der deutschsprachigen Schweiz, dem Europaplatz in Bern, dem Lagerplatz in Winterthur, dem Richtiplatz in Wallisellen und dem Murg-Auen-Park in Frauenfeld.

Exhibition Roger Boltshauser

Exhibition Roger Boltshauser

August, 26 till September, 12, 2021 – Exhibition and book launch Roger Boltshauser 

Although Roger Boltshauser is known for his work as an architect, it was not clear for a long time whether his path would lead into architecture or art.
Impressed by Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Arnulf Rainer, but also by Swiss representatives of Neo-Expressionism, and inspired by the Zurich youth riots in the 1980s, the architect began an artistic oeuvre parallel to his architecture studies, and exhibited it. He has remained true to both disciplines. His free art work is not to explain without his architectural work as, conversely, his architectural projects hardly without his artistic work. In constant parallel processes, art, design and construction combine to create his work.

The exhibition at Galerie Bommer presents a selection of Boltshauser`s sketches and bronze reliefs.


Vernissage
August, 26, 2021, 6 to 9 pm

Book launch with lectures
September, 7, 2021, 6 pm, Kunsthaus Zürich, Vortragssaal.

July, 1, 2021, 7pm – Book launch and exhibition opening 
Roger Boltshauser, Transformator II 

Although Roger Boltshauser is known for his work as an architect, for a long time it was not clear whether his path would lead to architecture or art. Inspired by Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Arnulf Rainer, as well as Swiss Neo-Expressionists, he was already producing and exhibiting his artworks while pursuing a degree in architecture. He has remained faithful to both disciplines, with the result that his independent artworks cannot be explained without his architectural work, and conversely, his architectural work cannot be explained without his artistic work.
His first exhibition at Architektur Galerie Berlin highlighted his realized projects; this new exhibition focuses on his sketches. Despite being a completely different medium, they address the same transformational processes. Ultimately, Roger Boltshauser is concerned at all levels with the constant search for an authentic answer that integrates as many aspects as possible. As such, art, design, and construction take place in constant parallel processes to form a common work.
The sketches, drawn on used envelopes, represent an archive of perceptions, ideas, and projects. Filling the gallery walls in a strict grid, they combine to form a library. A ladder on a rail around the space allows close study even of the drawings hanging above, while mobile shelves present a new monograph of Boltshauser’s work. In addition, a cinematic manifesto on sustainability in architecture transfers the drawings into the reality of building. Meanwhile, in front of the gallery, visitors can condense a pile of earth into an archaic rammed-earth wall.

Event series Gutes Bauen Ostschweiz unterwegs

Identität für Stadt – Land – Dorf ...

Der ehemalige Bauherren- und Architekturpreis «Gutes Bauen Ostschweiz» wandelte sich in den letzten zehn Jahren zu einer «Plattform für Architekturvermittlung». Um den Diskurs über lokale Baukultur in der Schweiz zu fördern, hat das Architektur Forum Ostschweiz (AFO) eine Artikelserie angeregt, die seit 2011 monatlich in der regionalen Tagespresse erscheint und gesammelt in den Anthologien zur Baukultur Raum Zeit Kultur (2016) sowie Stadt und Landschaft denken (2021) im Triest Verlag herausgegeben wurde.
Die Debatte um die Baukultur soll jedoch nicht nur in den Medien stattfinden, sondern auch am Ort des Geschehens. Das Architektur Forum Ostschweiz, der Triest Verlag sowie der Herausgeber Elias Baumgarten von swissarchitects.com laden deshalb zu folgenden Veranstaltungen ein, die sich mit den übergreifenden Themen Raumplanung, Städtebau, Architektur und Landschaftsplanung beschäftigen. Im Detail interessiert uns, wie die baukulturelle Identität der Orte gefunden, herausgearbeitet und gestaltet werden kann.
Moderiert werden die Diskussionen von Elias Baumgarten.

31.5.2021, 19.30 Uhr – Buchvernissage, Architektur Forum Ostschweiz, St. Gallen und im Livestream 

Elias Baumgarten, Chefredaktor swiss-architects.com / Susanna Koeberle, Journalistin, Zürich / Caspar Schärer, Architekt, Zürich

Das Architektur Forum Ostschweiz möchte mit der Artikelserie und diesem Buch die Tür für eine breite Diskussion um gute Architektur in der Ostschweiz und darüber hinaus öffnen; für Regionen, die wie die Ostschweiz einerseits mit Problemen der Abwanderung und des unbeholfenen Wildwuchses an Gewerbegebieten oder Wohnbauten zu kämpfen haben und die andererseits durch regionale Baukulturen und Identitäten sowie wirtschaftliche Besonderheiten prädestiniert sind, für diese Fragen Lösungen zu finden. Denn Baukultur «bröckelt», wie mir der Vorarlberger Architekt Stefan Marte einmal sagte, sobald man sich nicht ständig für sie einsetzt. Architekturvermittlung für alle ist dabei vielleicht der wichtigste Baustein.   Elias Baumgarten
Zusammen mit dem Herausgeber Elias Baumgarten, der Autorin Susanna Koeberle und dem Autor Caspar Schärer reflektieren wir den Prozess und diskutieren die Bedeutung der Berichterstattung über Architektur. Die Fotografin Katalin Deér, die zwei umfangreiche Bildessays zum Buch beigetragen hat, rahmt den Anlass mit einer kleinen Ausstellung. Und wir feiern die Taufe des Buches!

Book launch and panel discussion

Book launch and panel discussion

May 12, 2021, 6 pm – Architektur fertigen.
Positions on the future of design of industrial timber construction

On the occassion of the release of the publication Architektur fertigen. Konstruktiver Holzelementbau, we and the Baumuster-Centrale Zurich invite to the book launch and panel discussion.

In terms of tomorrow`s wooden architecture, design and construction must be based on current production methods, but they must also question and challenge them. Timber architecture can be expressive, economical and sustainable. But under what conditions and according to what rules is a modern timber structure ideally built?

Experts from design, implementation and research explain planning strategies and discuss conditions, tendencies and potentials of the timber construction design of today and tomorrow.

Most beautiful books of Liechtenstein

Most beautiful books of Liechtenstein

Lobende Anerkennung (honorable recognition) for "Upcycling" in the most beautiful books of Liechtenstein competition  

"Upcycling. Reuse and repurposing as a Design Principle in Architecture"was honored with a "lobende Anerkennung" in the most beautiful books in Liechtenstein competition in 2020. The publication`s design, which was designed by Annett Höland, is characterized primarily by the fact that the content of the book has been taken into account and the book cover has also been upcycled. All of the authors involved in the project made room for new things in their bookshelves and made their unused books available as raw material for the production of the cover, from which the special hand-made paper for the cover was created in the Basel paper mill.

Unfortunately, this first edition is sold out at the moment, but we are already accepting pre-orders for the second edition.

POSTPONED TO SPRING 2021
November 5, 2020 – Book launch «(K)ein Idyll – Das Einfamilienhaus» [(Not) an Idyll - The single-family house]

Together with the author Stefan Hartmann, we cordially invite you
one for the book launch of (K)ein Idyll – Das Einfamilienhaus. Eine Wohnform in der Sackgasse.

From terraced workers` houses to prefabricated houses – the story of the most popular form of living:
It is still relatively young. It was built as a workers` house in the 19th century and reached its first peak in the 1970s.
Moderate densification of existing settlements: The costs of building and maintaining the infrastructures burden the communities. In addition, many homeowners in the “baby boomer” era are now old and no longer able to manage their house and garden, so they moved away and vacancies arise.
What will the single-family house districts look like in the future?
Today we see the consequences: The agglomerations are sprawled by single-family housing estates with low density. The book presents solution models for sustainable future use.

Editorial: 
Autumn saw a number of changes at Triest. On the one hand, we are happy to welcome Andrea Woods to our team. She will be in charge of press
and marketing affairs. On the other, it was time to professionalise our Swiss distribution service and to hand over dispatch to the Buchzentrum.
Once again we would like to thank all of the small bookstores who took the trouble to help us out by ordering directly in recent years.

The spring programme features the following titles that we warmly recommend to you and your customers: Vico Magistretti. Stories of Objects explains why even classics of furniture design are not manufactured endlessly. And Compact Courtyard Housing focuses once again on a typology that picks up the topic of urban density. Thanks to the great success of Pisé – Rammed Earth there will now be a new hardcover edition.

Kerstin Forster, Andrea Wiegelmann and Andrea Woods wish you many inspiring moments with our new publications.

Schauplatz Bauhaus

December 14,  2019 – Schauplatz Bauhaus
mit Stimmen aus unabhängigen Schweizer Verlagen 


Swips – Swiss Independent Publishers lädt wieder zum «Schauplatz». Zwei bis drei Mal im Jahr werden Themen, die bewegen, anhand von Publikationen aus unabhängigen Schweizer Verlagen diskutiert. Die Auswahl der Themen bietet eine grosse Bandbreite an Perspektiven aus Architektur, Kunst, Soziologie, Design, Politik und Wirtschaft. Moderiert werden die Diskussionsabende von der Kulturjournalistin Karin Salm.

Am 14.12. widmet sich der Schauplatz dem Thema Bauhaus. Eingeladen, mit Karin Salm zu diskutieren sind die Kuratorin Marion von Osten und der Verleger Lars Müller (Lars Müller Publishers).

100 Jahre Bauhaus! Fürs Jubiläumsjahr 2019 sind viele interessante Publikationen, Ausstellungen und Symposien entstanden.
Anlässlich der Gründung des Bauhauses in Weimar forderte Walter Gropius 1919 die Künstler aller Sparten auf, Handwerker für den Bau «der Zukunft» zu werden.
100 Jahre später, zum Abschluss des Jubiläumsjahres und im Rahmen der Ausstellung «imaginista» in Bern haken wir nochmals nach: Wie konnte das Bauhaus, das nur 14 Jahre Bestand hatte, diese enorme Strahlkraft und Wirkungsmacht entwickeln? Welchen Einfluss hatte das Bauhaus, gegründet in Weimar und später in Dessau und Berlin zu Hause, in der Schweiz und über die Grenzen Europas hinaus? Wie viel ist von den Idealen und Ideen des Bauhauses geblieben, sowohl künstlerisch, architektonisch als auch politisch?

Symposium «Das Auge liest mit»

Symposium «Das Auge liest mit»

29. bis 30. November 2019 – Lesbar-Symposium.
«Das Auge liest mit. Über den didaktischen Mehrwert von Typografie …» 

Typografie gehört zu den meistvernachlässigten Themen in der Pädagogik.
Dabei leistet sie unglaublich viel: sie differenziert und strukturiert, sie hilft, das Gelesene schneller zu erfassen und besser zu verstehen — das alles von den Lesenden bzw. Lernenden unbewusst und unbemerkt.
Die Gestaltung von Texten ist eine wichtige Aufgabe — je komplexer ein Inhalt, umso anspruchsvoller die Typografie. Und umso wichtiger! Ob Schulbuch oder Arbeitsblatt — gedruckt und/oder digital — die Gestaltung von Texten selbst ist immer wesentlicher Teil der Vermittlung, aber meist fehlt die Zeit oder auch das Wissen für eine genaue Beschäftigung damit.
Die «Arbeitsgemeinschaft Lesbar — Typografie in der Wissensvermittlung»
möchte auf diese Defizite aufmerksam machen. Im Zentrum dieser zweitägigen Veranstaltung stehen der Nutzen und das Potenzial von Typografie für Lehrende und Lernende in der Wissensvermittlung. Mit diesem Symposium soll allen Menschen, die mittels Schrift kommunizieren (wie Lehrkräften, Vortragenden, PräsentatorInnen, DozentInnen und WissenschaftlerInnen), die Möglichkeit gegeben werden, sich weiterzubilden und interdisziplinär auszutauschen:
Praxisorientierte Vorträge vermitteln grundlegende technologische sowie
gestalterische Kenntnisse und regen anhand anschaulicher Beispiele eine diskursive Auseinandersetzung über die Relevanz von Typografie für eine gelungene Wissensvermittlung an. Es werden Fragen nach der Bedeutung von Typografie sowohl für das Lernen als auch für die Lehre erörtert sowie aktuelle Entwicklungen im Bildungsbereich diskutiert.

Tÿpo St. Gallen

Tÿpo St. Gallen

8 to 10 Novemer, 2019, Tÿpo St. Gallen "Balance"

3-day design symposium with a Triest book stand.

Anyone involved in design has to make decisions on a daily basis: on colours, shapes and ideas, proportions, form and functionality, and on what is too much or too little. We communicate, negotiate,conceive, compose, postpone, determine, develop, design, emphasize, strike out and realise – in a unique and audacious dance, a struggle for balance!
And even before the actual design task begins, equilibrium needs to be established: between clients and partners, in the process of planning and
coordination, as regards time and money, concept and implementation, schnapps and idea … in thefrenzy of daily professional life, it is not easy to keep one’s balance!

Tÿpo St. Gallen sees itself as a forum for professionals and design freaks, to seek and promote discussions between speakers and the public.
Besides the presentations, there is lots of time for talks and an inspiring array of fringe events.

Crowdfunding Lesbar

Crowdfunding Lesbar

Until 12.10.2019 - Crowdfunding for «Lesbar»! 

Writing – and with it, legibility – is vital for public perception.
Readability – or the arrangement of text, the combination of content and medium, the clarification of the content by its form, the work on and with visual conventions – as a field of typography - is a largely unknown. Their effect, especially the effect of didactic typography, is explained in this book.

Exhibition The Bones of Architecture

Exhibition The Bones of Architecture

18 June to 15 September, 2019: The Bones of Architecture – exhibition

Besides the many components that characterise the appearance of a building, it is the physical prerequisites that are crucial. They tie the (structural) components together and let the building “stand”: just like the bones of vertebrates and us humans, every building has a load-bearing structure.

From that perspective, construction, and thus also the buildings themselves are subject to fundamental sets of rules; as long as they are observed, the connection of their materials and components ensures good load bearing properties. In that way, these sets of rules create forms, patterns, orders and restrictions.
Today, construction and design technologies challenge the idea of structure and its role as a generator of architectural form. Moreover, the position of structure within the manifold factors of design and building is also under scrutiny in view of new possibilities to create form.

This publication investigates the cultivation of structures for architecture as developed by practising architects and engineers. Presenting the works and approaches of seven European architects and engineers, the editor simultaneously reflects on the rules, strategies and methods of designing structures and load bearing structures.

With selected works by: Rui Furtado, engineer, Porto; Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter, Copenhagen; Pedrazzini Guidotti, engineers, Lugano; Bruther, architects, Paris; Brandlhuber+, Arno  Brandlhuber, architect, Berlin; engineer Bernabeu, Madrid; 6a Architects, London, accompanied by interviews and texts by Ákos Moravánszky and Mario Rinke.

Curator: Mario Rinke. Publication coming soon.

Tektura, Ombra, Corpus and Femina. While these fonts are world famous and widely popular, the man behind them, Othmar Motter (1927–2010), is only known to a few. By and large, his great international reputation – according to Anita Kern, “probably the Austrian graphic designer with the strongest international presence worldwide” – has been restricted to specialist circles, and even within those, his designs are better known than the graphic designer and person himself.

Symposium

Symposium

27.10.2018 – Tagung: Für eine Geschichte der gebauten Stadt   
 
Anlässlich der Wiederauflage des Buches «Die Morphologische Betrachtungsweise von Stadt und Territorium» Sylvain Malfroy wird im im Rahmen einer Tagung der wichtige Beitrag der morphologischen Schule um Saverio Muratoriund Gianfranco Caniggia behandelt und nach der Relevanz gefragt, die sie vor dem Hintergrund aktueller Probleme des Städtebaus haben kann. Inwiefern also können die Studien dieser Autoren noch heute Grundlage für die Auseinandersetzung mit der Stadt und mit post-urbanen Phänomenen sein? Und inwiefern greifen sie angesichts der weltweiten Zersiedlung und des Phänomens einer zunehmend mehrdeutigen Landschaft zu kurz? Oder anders gefragt: Ist das Modell der morphologischen Analyse heute überholt oder kann es einen Beitrag für das Verständnis von mehrdeutigen Stadtlandschaften leisten?

Diese Fragen werden in zwei thematischen Schwerpunkten verfolgt: Erstens geht es darum, ob die morphologische Analyse im Geiste der «storia operante» vor dem Hintergrund einer vermehrt a-historischen Gesellschaft nicht eher als eine Synthese verstanden werden muss. Die morphologische Analyse nämlich war nie eine «unschuldige» Beschreibungsmethode, sondern immer mit einer entwerferischen Haltung verknüpft, weshalb die Natur dieses Ansatzes als analytische Methode grundsätzlich hinterfragt werden muss. Zweitens geht es über die Brücke des Begriffs «Territoriums» um die Frage nach der Rolle der Architektur und der unterschiedlichen Massstäbe der Stadt. In der Arbeit von Caniggia bestand eine klare Hierarchie der Massstäbe zwischen dem Gebäude, dem Quartier, der Stadt und dem Territorium – ihre jeweilige Organisation und ihre Abhängigkeiten wurden als Struktur, System und schlussendlich als Organismus beschrieben. Diese Relationen werden in der zeitgenössischen Auseinandersetzung mit dem Territorium vollkommen ignoriert oder als nicht existent verdrängt.

Swips – Swiss Independent Publishers lanciert die neue Veranstaltungsreihe «Schauplatz». Zwei bis drei Mal im Jahr werden Themen, die bewegen, anhand von Publikationen aus unabhängigen Schweizer Verlagen diskutiert. Die Auswahl der Themen bietet eine grosse Bandbreite an Perspektiven aus Architektur, Kunst, Soziologie, Design, Politik und Wirtschaft.

Schauplatz 68

Was geschah vor fünfzig Jahren, um das Jahr 1968 namensgebend für ein Jahrzehnt des Umbruchs werden zu lassen? Weltweit gab es Bürgerrechtsbewegungen, studentische Proteste oder kulturelle Aktivitäten, die in Politik und Gesellschaft langfristig Niederschlag fanden.
Und wie war die Situation in der Schweiz? Wer waren die Protagonisten der Achtundsechzigerjahre und was sind die heute noch lebendigen Spuren? 
Wir werfen einen literarischen Blick auf die 68er und erklären sie zum Schauplatz unserer Veranstaltung.


Mit Karin Salm, Kulturjournalistin, diskutieren u.a. der Soziologe Ueli Mäder sowie der Journalist und Kulturwissenschaftler Beat Grossrieder.

Lecture on Ernst Keller

Lecture on Ernst Keller

14.9.2018, 7pm – Lecture "No Style. Ernst Keller" by Peter Vetter

In various different places, particularly in the USA, when writing the history of graphic design, 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.

Ernst Keller’s contribution to the development of innovative, non-academic didactic principles in design training plays a fundamental role. His teaching activity starting in 1918 can be defined as one of the first systematic training programmes for graphic design in the world.
His many years of teaching between 1918 and 1956 resulted in very different designers. They include the protagonists of new graphic design such as Richard Paul Lohse, Josef Müller-Brockmann and Carlo Vivarelli or various talents of artistic illustration such as Heiri Steiner, Lora Lamm or K. Domenic Geissbühler, and innovative designers such as Hermann Eidenbenz or Gérard Miedinger. As well as scientific illustrators such as H.P. Weber or caricaturist H.U. Steger. An additional group consists of designers who teach internationally such as Pierre Gauchat, Walter Käch, Robert Sessler, Fred Troller and Josef Müller-Brockmann. This diversity of talent is an impressive documentation of the openness, sustainability and rejection of dogma evident in Ernst Keller’s teaching.

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

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.

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".

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.

Book presentation and exhibition

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 …

No Style. 
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.

«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.»

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)

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.

... there are books for readers and books for authors, that is, for recipients and producers.

Swiss Style exhibition
Museum für Gestaltung
Pfingstweidstrasse 96, 8005 Zurich 

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.
