even more museum?! today’s new museum buildings tuesday, 27, Sept. 10 am - 7 pm
There is construction being done in Weimar, Dessau and Berlin: in preparation for the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus’s founding, the three Bauhaus institutions will be receiving new buildings to enable them to deal appropriately with their growing collections’ spatial requirements and the needs of a modern museum. The Bauhaus-Archiv / Museum für Gestaltung in Berlin held a public conference to jointly discuss topics involved in the context of today’s museum building projects.
As a place of dialogue,but also contemplation, a place of education and communication, of dynamic and interactive convergence, the museum is among the most demanding architectural projects of our time – not least because of the increased expectations and needs of its users and its diverse range of tasks. The speakers on the challenges and opportunities for museum architecture will include Staab Architekten, Berlin; Heike Hanada, Berlin; Gonzales Hinz Zabala, Barcelona; Christ & Gantenbein, Basel, and Lederer Ragnarsdóttir Oei, Stuttgart. The conference will be moderated by Jürgen Tietz, journalist and architectural critic for the Neue Zürcher Zeitung.
This event was sponsored by Gegenbauer, Groth Gruppe, Hochtief and the Wüstenrot Stiftung.
