Exhibition Spielstädte!
100+ Options for the Future of Thuringia
Apolda

As part of their Curated Studies program, professor Barbara Holzer and Tanja Kullack have gathered in collaboration with IBA Thuringia during winter semester 2017/18 more than 120 students of Peter Behrens School of Arts (PBSA) in the town of Apolda. The state of Thuringia presents the thinking space called "STADTLAND" for the studios.

More than 100 options for Apolda and Thuringia have been developed — starting from local acupunctions that trigger shifts of context by minimal interventions to visions for metropoles of the future. The Exhibition Design Institute of University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf has created by analysing the students' concepts, drafts, and visions the exhibition "Spielstädte! 100+ Options for the Future of Thuringia".

Constructing the World
Art and Economy — 1919-1939 and 2008-2018
Mannheim

The first topical exhibition in the new building of Kunsthalle Mannheim sheds light on the economy's impact on the arts by presenting classical modern art from the 1920s and 1930s, focussing on the German Weimar Republic, the Soviet Union and the United States.

Free-standing wall units partition the three connecting rooms of the exhibition's historic part. See-through moments and juxtapositions keep refreshing perspectives and correlations of the thematically clustered art works. A color scheme that resonates with the spirit of the time has inspired a background of geometrical panels in bold hues and highlights selected exhibits. Few media installations provide background information of pivotal social developments such as the emergence of the modern metropolis in the early 20th century; an axial "trail" provides the exhibition's chronologic and contextualising backbone.

A spatial graphic design derived from Gustavs Klucis' work Dynamic City connects the historic and the contemporary part of the exhibition and welcomes visitors in the foyer of Kunsthalle Mannheim.

A new permanent exhibition is opened at the former Bank of Germany building, which is positioned in correspondence with the dome. The exhibition design consciously takes up elements of the dome's architecture and establishes spatial connections to the graves of Otto and Editha in the Dome. The colours of the ottonian frescos and codices has influenced the scenography, a source of inspiration also for the architecture back then, as has come to light as work proceeded.

Bauhaus Buildings Dessau: Originals Retold
Dessau-Roßlau

In Dessau, Saxony-Anhalt, where the different activities of the Bauhaus reached their pinnacle, the members of this avant-gardistic school constructed a number of visionary buildings that were restored or partially reconstructed for the anniversary year of the Bauhaus. They are now accessible to visitors. 

In their creative interpretation of the residential properties and studios Holzer Kobler Architekturen centers on the spatial and atmospheric perception of the buildings as such. The scenography presents a modular, extensible orientation and communications system, based on filmic mediation. The reopening will take place on 18 April 2019.

"Prison" – Final Days
Geneva

"Prison" deals with life behind bars – with the themes confinement, detention conditions, exclusion, but also reintegration and the role of the judiciary. A manifold scenography explores the inside and outside of prisons in a colorful and positivistic manner. Historical, philosophical, anthropological and sociological aspects of incarceration reveal the ambiguous reality of detention, they break down stereotypes and raise the possibility of alternatives to authoritarian and antiquated punitive systems.

"Prison" was produced by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva (MICR) in partnership with the Musée des Confluences in Lyon (MDC) and the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden (DHMD). The exhibition will close on August 18, 2019, at the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva. The reopening at the Musée des Confluences in Lyon is on October 19, 2019.

"Prison" at the Musée des Confluences
Lyon

"Prison" deals with life behind bars – with confinement, detention conditions, exclusion, but also reintegration and the role of the judiciary. A manifold scenography explores the inside and outside of prisons in a colorful and positivistic manner. Historical, philosophical, anthropological and sociological aspects of incarceration reveal the ambiguous reality of detention, they break down stereotypes and raise the possibility of alternatives to authoritarian and antiquated punitive systems. Scenography: Holzer Kobler Architekturen.

The exhibition is produced by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva (MICR) in partnership with the Musée des Confluences in Lyon (MDC) and the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum in Dresden (DHMD). After being presented in Geneva, it will be shown at the Musée des Confluences in Lyon from 18. October 2019 until 26. July 2020. The reopening at the Deutsches Hygiene Museum will be on 25. September 2020.

Tattoo Legends: Christian Warlich
Hamburg

At the beginning of the 20th century, the art of tattooing began to flourish in the Western world. One of the most prominent protagonists was Christian Warlich (1891-1964), a tattoo artist in Hamburg, who gained international recognition as the "King of Tattoo Artists". The Museum for Hamburg History, that owns the world's largest collection of Warlich’s objects, is now dedicating an exhibition to this icon, designed by Holzer Kobler Architekturen.The exhibition honors Warlich's oeuvre as "everyday"-art. They are pictures for life: present always and everywhere.

The opening ceremony is on Tuesday 26 November 2019 at 7 p.m. The exhibition will run from 27 November 2019 to 25 May 2020.

Boom. 500 years of Industrial Heritage in Saxony
New opening date, Zwickau

The main attraction of the 4th State of Saxony Exhibition focuses on the history of industrialisation and its influence on the work- and everyday life of the inhabitants of the region. In the Audi-Bau Zwickau, a former assembly hall specially remodelled into a temporary museum, the task of finishing the exhibition is in full swing. Exhibition scenography and design: Holzer Kobler Architekturen. The exhibition will be opened on 11 July and will run until 31 December 2020.

Based on a exhibition tour in 6 chapters, the visitors in the 2,500 m² exhibition hall are taken on a journey through five centuries of Saxon industry-culture history. By way of over 500 unique exhibits, a broad cultural and historical panorama unfolds: From the legendary beginnings of mining in the Renaissance period and the already early on internationally connected textile industries of the 18th and 19th centuries, through the phase of high industrialisation, the catastrophes of the First and Second World War, right up to the time of the GDR, the exhibition – curated by the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum Dresden under the direction of Thomas Spring –, gives us a look at the present time and also opens up perspectives of the future of the Free State of Saxony.

Museum Hegel-Haus
Opening, Stuttgart

To mark the 250th anniversary of the birth of Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, the Museum Hegel-Haus in Stuttgart shines in new splendour. In the house where the great thinker was born, a newly designed permanent exhibition shows his many different facets. In addition to his original manuscripts, Hegel's personality and his extensive oeuvre are highlighted, amongst others, by way of interactive encounters.

The design of the exhibition focuses on various aspects. On the one hand, the house itself can be seen as an artefact in its own right, integrating and emphasising the meandering exhibition furnishings. With its minimalistic, contemporary design, it works as a means of mediation allowing the room to unfold auratically by keeping distance to the walls.

Furthermore, the meandering allows parallels to Hegel's work in terms of content by way of its filigree, sketch-like contours running through the room: only by changing the perspective of the viewer or his movements in the room do its contents become accessible and the furniture can be perceived in its entirety. Texts become legible, pictures complete and exhibits visible from all sides. This interaction subtly illustrates one of the core ideas of Hegel's dialectic: thesis – antithesis – synthesis.

Emperors and the Pillars of their Power
Mainz

From Charlemagne to Frederick Barbarossa: in five sections the exhibition explores the different conceptions and strategies of their rule of a selection of imperial personalities in their domains in the Rhine region over five centuries. The exhibition levels are structured by way of floor-to-ceiling walls, thereby creating their own spatial composition of the rooms and a new rhythm for this tour through the Landesmuseum Mainz (DE).

The strong colors of the scenography create a unique atmosphere for each section, in order to symbolize the character and creativity of the individual potentate, at the same time providing attractive surfaces for the presentation of the precious objects. As an additional means of communication, informative graphic elements and illustrated short films lead the visitors through life and world events in the Middle Ages. A background soundtrack produces a mystical atmosphere, thereby shaping the exhibition experience of the visitors in a very subtle way.

The exhibition in the Landesmuseum Mainz (D) is open from September 9, 2020 to April 18, 2021.

In Jail. On deprivation of freedom
Exhibition opening, Dresden

"In Jail. On deprivation of freedom" deals with life behind bars – with confinement, detention conditions, exclusion, but also reintegration and the role of the judiciary. A manifold scenography explores the inside and outside of prisons in a colorful and positivistic manner. Historical, philosophical, anthropological and sociological aspects of incarceration reveal the ambiguous reality of detention, they break down stereotypes and raise the possibility of alternatives to authoritarian and antiquated punitive systems.

The exhibition was realised in a trinational cooperation of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum in Geneva (MICR), the Musée des Confluences in Lyon (MDC) and the German Hygiene Museum in Dresden (DHMD). The curators of the three museums, Isabel Dzierson, Marianne Rigaud-Roy and Sandra Sunier, have jointly developed the concept, the design was created by Holzer Kobler Architekturen. After its presentation in Geneva (February 5 – August 18, 2019), the exhibition was shown at the Musée des Confluences in Lyon from October 18, 2019 to July 26, 2020. It will open at the German Hygiene Museum in Dresden on September 26, 2020 and can be seen until May 31, 2021.

Exhibition opening: Difficult Heritage.
Stuttgart (Eröffnung verschoben)

With the exhibition "Difficult Heritage. The Linden-Museum and Württemberg in Colonialism" the Linden-Museum takes a look at its own history with regard to colonialism and post-colonial issues. Conceived as a summary exhibition of works, it focuses on the process of coming to terms with history through a conscious shifting of perspectives. This basic concept is taken up by the exhibition design. Numerous modules with different creative approaches to the topic are distributed around stands and open fragmentary exhibitions in the rooms of the museum. Empty spaces and breaks in the scenography demonstrate the complexity of dealing with this cultural heritage. At each station, participation is encouraged as well as opportunities for in-depth research and discussion.

Exhibition design: Holzer Kobler Architekturen Zurich/Berlin | Graphic design: 2xGoldstein

Note: The exhibition cannot be opened as planned at the end of November 2020. The new date will be announced in due time.

Exhibition Opening: Parcours Rousseau
Genève 11

On 21 April 2021, the new Parcours Rousseau will open on the first floor of the recently renovated birthplace of Jean-Jacques Rousseau – im Maison de Rousseau & de la Littérature in Geneva.

The exhibition design uses an atmospheric setting to experience Rousseau with his lively and deep mind as a musician, thinker, writer and scholar. Rousseau is not only the great writer who rejuvenated the French language and made it sing like no one before him. As the founder of ethnology and anthropology, precursor of deep ecology, he is the first thinker of nascent modernity. Recognizing its contradictions, he was a whistle-blower.

WIA Women in Architecture | Shifting Boundaries
Berlin

In the context of social (cultural) spaces, where are the essential challenges of an increasingly diverse society? Additionally where is the design and clear allocation of spaces and architecture as well as their simultaneous mechanisms of exclusion of different social groups or a rapid development of digital innovation?

As part of Women in Architecture Berlin, Barbara Holzer invites three personalities from the fields of architecture, science, media and art who with their different wealth of experience will explore new connections to architecture and (open) space in a lively debate.

Participants: Astrid Bornheim (Astrid Bornheim Architektur BDA, DWB), Prof. Dr. Susanne Hauser (UdK Berlin), Prof. Barbara Holzer (Holzer Kobler Architekturen; PBSA), Prof. Gabi Schillig (Studio for Dialogical Spaces / UdK Berlin)

Opening: Healing and Caring
Dortmund

The exhibition Healing and Caring is a newly designed, independent complex of the DASA Arbeitswelt exhibition in Dortmund, focused on the professions of the health care sector in an area of approximately 800 square metres. In the five chapters Examining, Rescuing, Operating, Treating and Caring, all areas of care work are made comprehensible in a largely interactive way.

The exhibition furniture, the intensive lighting and the choice of materials are oriented towards hospital and pharmacy atmospheres. As in treatment situations, semi-transparent gauzes separate the exhibition areas from each other. The differently coloured floor coverings create different zones in the open exhibition area. In the middle of the room, a separate rest area, modelled on a grassy landscape with an auditory natural backdrop, allows visitors to reflect on the theme of "taking a break" and why this is often neglected.

The exhibition opens on 10 June 2021.

Humboldt Forum Berlin
Berlin

On 20 July 2021, the Humboldt Forum will open its portals. Holzer Kobler Architekturen is responsible for the entire structural corporate design of the Humboldt Forum, for the exhibition scenography of the ivory exhibition "Terrible Beauty: Elephant – Human – Ivory" and for the design of the Humboldt Academy. 

In the foyer of the Humboldt Forum, the Kosmograf welcomes visitors with an eye catching display of art and information. Standing over 20m high, it is an aesthetic sculpture which embodies the aspiration and mission of the Humboldt Forum. The Kosmograf is a collaboration between Holzer Kobler Architekturen as designers of the sculpture and cutting-edge artist Ali Hossaini, who developed the brand and artistic concept.

Ivory – precious substance for cult, art and everyday objects, sign of luxury, status, greed and power, testimony of colonialism, exploitation and human cruelty. The multi-layered ways of looking at ivory characterise the design of the exhibition in a motivically intervowen course. The ivory exhibition runs from 20 Juli 2021 to 28 November 2021.

Opening of Humboldt Academy at the Humboldt Forum
Berlin

The Humboldt Academy in Berlin's Humboldt Forum is head office and starting point for organised guided tours for visitors and for group events as well as venue for all kinds of educational, social and cultural outreach, from workshops to talks, panel discussions, drop-ins or further projects. It thus spans 1000 square metres of space on two levels, designed to meet varying needs and requirements. In addition to service and office units for education and public programs, the available area encompasses eight generously equipped work and seminar rooms of superior quality, an activity space as well as work and play areas for up to 200 users.

For a functional and diversified room concept, a furnishing system based on modules was developed that can be adapted with great flexibility. The diversified equipment, furnishing and colour coordination give the different functional areas a very individual character. Colours, materials and lighting create specific, identity-forming accents. Sliding panels made of glass and acoustically effective curtains contribute to a communicative yet concentrated atmosphere.

The Humboldt Academy celebrates with a family festival on 21 August 2021.

Opening exhibition of the refurbished Neue Nationalgalerie
Berlin

After having been closed for six years due to refurbishment and modernisation, the Neue Nationalgalerie presents the main works of classic modern art from its collection in its opening exhibition. "The Art of Society. 1900–1945: The Nationalgalerie Collection" presents around 250 paintings and sculptures dating from 1900 to 1945 on about 3000 square metres.

The choreography of the exhibition is conceived along thematical lines and invites visitors to explore the newly renovated rooms of the Mies van der Rohe building at random. The architectural proportions and modular grid that characterise this unique building form the basis of the design for this exhibition. In the openly designed spaces, the individual works of art are specifically placed and staged, hung liberally, or distributed within the room on minimalistic pedestals. Detailed explanations are printed on filigree fabric panels and hung in the exhibition rooms. Art education is directly integrated into the exhibition. The multifunctional, puristically designed furniture and presentation walls enable a variety of outreach and participation formats.

The design approach chosen for the opening exhibition in the Neue Nationalgalerie thus focuses on a symbiosis of architecture and art, room, and content.

The Neue Nationalgalerie will reopen for visitors on Sunday, 22 August 2021.

House-Raising-Ceremony Sartorius Quarter
Göttingen

An ultramodern new quarter that combines work, research and living is in the process of being erected in Göttingen's Nordstadt at the former location of the pharmaceutical and laboratory supplier Sartorius AG. Construction work on the future Sartorius Quarter, with a master plan developed by Holzer Kobler Architekturen providing the urban planning framework, has made impressive progress. The buildings include a Life Science Factory planned and to be implemented by Holzer Kobler Architekturen, which will offer start-ups from the life science research sector a home in a modern environment with state-of-the-art infrastructure. The new building will further promote interchange and synergies between the different research groups and can be seen as an investment into the future. For the building on construction site 1.2 (Client: Hamburg Team, costumer: Ottobock) Holzer Kobler Architekturen is responsible for service phases 1–4.

The proprietors of the building, Sartorius AG and HAMBURG TEAM, extend their invitation for the house-raising-ceremony. We would like to thank everyone involved in the project, especially the craftsmen and -women.

With Bible and Spade. 900 Years of the Premonstratensian Order
Magdeburg

In the first single exhibition focussing exclusively on the Premonstratensians, outstanding works of art dating from the Middle Ages to our era show the cultural, spiritual and economic work of the order from its origins until today. The exhibition scenography is based on the concept of: reuse – reduce – redefine. As far as possible, display cases were taken from existing stocks and integrated into an overriding design corresponding with the architecture while remaining delicate and minimalistic. An atmosphere of differing identities is achieved in the individual exhibition rooms by means of a colour concept based on the colours of the pictures and objects of the exhibition.

The timeline in the choreography of the exhibition is conceived like a loop. On the stairs leading to the exhibition areas, visitors are welcomed by media projections showing the Premonstratensian Order as it is today. With knowledge of the present time, one can go back to the beginnings, and from there move chronologically on through the centuries.

The exhibition will be open from 8 September 2021 to 9 January 2022.

As part of the interdisciplinary MA1 Architecture and Interior Design, the PBSA's "Curated Studies" team is organising – as a prelude to the winter term – a lecture event on issues of participatory, contemporary neighbourhood development and on the "Köln-Kreuzfeld - Stadt-Land+Feld" project.

A new district is to be built in Cologne. As part of an urban development competition with intensive involvement of the local population, the city of Cologne is planning a new district on a "greenfield" site. This district will extend the districts of Chorweiler and Blumenberg, which are „socially challenging“ in parts, in a north-westerly direction. The BRAIN FOOD event will take place online via Zoom on 29.09.2021 from 9:30 to 18:00.

Life Science Factory | Soft Opening
online

The new Life Science Factory in Göttingen's Nordstadt opens its doors on 19 January and offers scientists a place to take their first steps outside of academic institutions with their start-up ideas and to develop innovative technologies with an application focus.

The Life Science Factory is part of the newly emerging Sartorius Quarter, for which the masterplan by Holzer Kobler Architekturen provides the framework of urban planning. The architecture of the Life Science Factory building with four floors of 3,300 m² is based on the central idea of this start-up centre, which is to offer newly founded life science and research companies a home in a contemporary environment with state-of-the-art infrastructure, to promote exchange among the research groups and thus to enable synergies as an investment in the future.

The building is divided into 3 areas: On the ground floor is the spacious entrance hall and the event area with cafeteria as well as a prototyping workshop (Makerspace). On the 3 upper floors, a coworking space and 2 levels with laboratory workstations offer flexible and variable work options.

Cranach - The Beginnings in Vienna
Winterthur

The exhibition "Cranach – The Beginnings in Vienna" in the Oskar Reinhart Collection "Am Römerholz" is realised as a collaborative show together with the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. For the first time the focus is set on the artistic beginnings of Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553). Cranach was born in Franconia, he created his earliest known works around 1500 in Vienna. The key works presented by the two museums are supplemented for the exhibition by prestigious loans.

The nearly twenty works selected from a small number of works of this early period are shown in four rooms. In the first room, numerous portraits are arranged around the two central portraits of Dr. Johannes Cuspinian and Anna Cuspinian-Putsch. On display once again for a long time, the reverse side of the diptych is also shown. The background colour of these two pictures is taken up for the colour tone of all rooms. The detailed landscape in the background of the portraits can be experienced as an artistic video work by Georg Lendorff in the passage room. In the last two cabinets, ecclesiastical depictions of saints and crucifixion scenes follow; missals and wood engravings conclude the exhibition.

We have designed the exhibition as a harmonious installation in a collector's house, where house and work interact with each other and where the 500-year-old paintings are given a new form of reception with modern media and film. Cranach's early works will breathe and live for this extraordinary exhibition for a few exclusive weeks in Winterthur in spring 2022.

FRAU INNEN ARCHITEKT
Wie Frauen Häuser bauen
Basel

Fr, 06. Mai 2022, 12:30-13:30h Podiumsdiskussion

Bauen Frauen anders als Männer? Wählen sie andere Materialien aus? Wie wählen Sie Materialien aus? Wie funktioniert die Kommunikation mit der Bauherrschaft? Wie jene mit den Handwerkern?

Gibt es eine spezifisch weibliche Architektur?

Solche und ähnliche Fragen werden an der Podiumsdiskussion im Swissbau Fokus in einer hochkarätigen Frauenrunde diskutiert. Dabei geht es nicht darum, auf Konfrontation mit der noch immer von Männern dominierten Bau- und Architekturbranche zu gehen, sondern aufzuzeigen, welche neuen Perspektiven Frauen im Beruf als Architektin und Innenarchitektin mitbringen. Herangehensweisen, die neue Impulse geben können. Es soll keine frauenrechts-politsche Veranstaltung werden, sondern aus dem Leben und Schaffen von Innenarchitektinnen und Architektinnen erzählen, die bereits Gutes erschaffen haben und noch Grossartiges erschaffen werden.

Im Anschluss an die Veranstaltung findet ein Networking-Apéro statt.

Opening Kunstmuseum Bern
Taking stock. Gurlitt in Review
Bern

16.09.22 - 15.01.23

The Kunstmuseum Bern accepted the legacy uf Cornelius Gurlitt (1932 - 2014) in November 2014. Since December 2021, around 1600 works of art from the estate of the art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt (1895 - 1965) have also physically arrived at the museum. Beacuse Hildebrand Gurlitt traded in art during the National Socialist era in Germany (1933 - 1945), the inventory has been scrutinised for possible cases of Nazi looted art since 2013.

The exhibition offers in-depth insights into the Gurlitt legacy and the scolarly research of it. Individual thematic rooms explore, in detail, the ethical guidelines, legal framework and results of this unique international provenance research project. We show how the Kunstmuseum Bern responsibly fulfils its obligations in dealing with works of art in its acceptance of the Gurlitt bequest.

"Eine Liebeserklärung an das Paznaun"

Dr. Walter Köck wirkte über drei Jahrzehnte als Arzt im Paznaun. Sein Beruf war geprägt durch das Tal und seine Menschen. Während dieser arbeitsreichen Zeit machte er akribisch Aufzeichnungen und entdeckte seine historischen Fähigkeiten (Vorworte bei vielen Festschriften und Artikeln in regionalen Medien). In der Pension fing er an Bücher zu schreiben und Reden zu halten. Diese archivarische Arbeit spiegelt Walter`s Blickwinkel auf das Paznaun wider, die geprägt ist vom Interesse an der Kultur, der Landschaft und den Menschen.

In der Ausstellung geht es um seine Liebeserklärung, die auf sehr persönliche Art ein Leben widerspiegelt, welches für das Paznaun und seine BewohnerInnen eine große Bedeutung hatte.

Architects at Play - Parcours ludique
letzte Tage
Les Acacias

27 avril jusqu'au 11 juin au Pavillon Sicli.

Des dessins de R. Buckminster Fuller, aux œuvres singulières d’Aldo Rossi en passant par les expérimentations de Charles & Ray Eames, le visiteur·euse sera amené à découvrir que l’humain est un architecte joueur. De la cabane solitaire à l’arche cosmopolite, nous construisons en jouant des mondes que nous co-habitons. Le jeu ouvre un intervalle mystérieux entre nos subjectivités et la réalité, où il devient possible de saisir le monde autant que d’être saisi par lui.

« Architects at Play » constitue l’aboutissement d’une recherche de David Malaud sur le jeu et l’imagination architecturale, les expériences construites et les récits mythologiques. L’exposition initie la rencontre entre deux personnages : celui de l’architecte et celui de l’enfant et explore une série de mondes imaginés par leurs jeux.  Ces mondes et les mécanismes d’invention qu’ils convoquent sont au cœur du dispositif curatorial où s’entrechoquent les terrains de jeu de l’enfance et ceux d’architectes, d’artistes ou de designers, afin d’offrir l’expérience du saisissement du monde.

Un riche programme d’événements sera mis en place au cours de l’exposition. Des ateliers didactiques pour les enfants, une table ronde ainsi que des visites guidées offriront aux visiteurs·euses –jeunes et moins jeunes– des occasions uniques de découvrir toutes les facettes de « Architects at Play ».

Beim BEHIND Tischgespräch am 24. Oktober 2023 im AIT-ArchitekturSalon Hamburg werden in Anwesenheit von rund 30 geladenen Gästen aus Architektur und Planung „Gute Räume“ als Ausgangspunkt für langlebige Architektur diskutiert.

Was zeichnet „Gute Räume“ aus? Wie sieht eine gebaute Umgebung aus, in der wir uns auch nach Jahrzehnten noch wohlfühlen, deren Gestaltung uns begeistert und die sich wechselnden Nutzungen gegenüber als anpassungsfähig beweist? „Gute Räume“ sind dauerhaft in ihrer Materialität, flexibel in ihrer Grundrissstruktur und zeitlos in ihrer architektonischen Qualität. Gute Räume“ tragen zur Gesundheit und zum Wohlbefinden bei.

Vortrag "Symbiosen"
Dach, Fassade und Solar
Hamburg
Seit der Premiere der Veranstaltungsreihe Symbiosen im Jahr 2012 lädt PREFA Architekten und Planer zum exklusiven fachlichen Austausch ein. Getreu dem Motto „Symbiosen“ wurden die vielfältigen Verbindungen zwischen Alt und Neu, der Umgang mit dem baulichen Erbe und das Thema Weiterbauen diskutiert, ebenso wie die Frage nach sich ändernden Anforderungen an Gebäude und deren Nutzung. 2023 liegt der Fokus auf der Symbiose zwischen Dach, Fassade und Solar. Nicht nur aus technischen und Aspekten der Effizienz, dem sinnvollen Einsatz von Ressourcen, sondern auch aus dem Gedanken heraus Fassade und Dach als gestalterische Einheit zu betrachten.
 
Das vielseitig einsetzbare Material Aluminium hat eine Reihe innovativer Architekten zu visionären Projekten inspiriert. Aus deren Oeuvre und den aktuellen Produktentwicklungen schöpft die neue Reihe und gibt wertvolles Wissen zwischen praktischen Anwendungen und Material-Know-how weiter.

Wir freuen uns sehr über die Auszeichnung in der Kategorie „Out of the Box“ – als ausgelobtes Gesamtsiegerprojekt - beim Heinze Architektur AWARD 2023, den wir am 23. November 2023 im Rahmen des HEINZE Klimafestivals entgegennehmen durften.

Wir gratulieren allen übrigen Preisträgern!

 

Unser Erlebnis-Hus in St. Peter-Ording würdigte die Jury als eine erfrischende Architektur-Entdeckung:

 

„An der westlichen Küstenlinie Schleswig-Holsteins gründet sich dieses Haus ohne Form auf vielen kleinen Betonpfählen. Die Holzstruktur aus Stützen und Balken gleichen Formats setzt sich vorsichtig auf die kleinen Pfähle nieder, als hätte sie ein wenig Scheu vor der Allmacht des Wassers. Das Haus macht die Feuchtigkeit spürbar. Gleichzeitig wirkt es wie ein übergroßes Spielgerät auf einem Spielplatz oder wie ein Pier, der viel zu weit vom Meer entfernt steht und nicht mehr vollständig zu sein scheint. Außerdem sehen wir die Archaik und Erhabenheit einer fernöstlichen Holzkonstruktion. Dieses Gebilde öffnet unsere Vorstellungskanäle und ist im besten Sinne einfach nur inspirierend. Glücklicherweise, oder mit Intention, wer weiß es schon, endet diese anregende Art beim Betreten des Skeletts nicht. Die Anregungen zur Benutzung sind so phantasievoll wie überraschend, austauschbar und zum Aneignen gemacht. Jeder und alles scheint unter, neben, auf und in ihm oder ihr möglich zu sein. Auch wenn die Bewältigung zeitgenössischer Fragestellung der Nachhaltigkeit in gleicher Qualität bei diesem Projekt angegangen wurde, wollen wir primär betonen, dass hier etwas Seltenes passiert ist: Architektur, die Neuheit ausstrahlt.“

Im Jahr 2029 wird im UNESCO Welterbe Oberes Mittelrheintal die Bundesgartenschau stattfinden. Sie wird an mehreren Orten, entlang einer Strecke von 67 Kilometern an beiden Uferseiten des Rheins zwischen Rüdesheim und Koblenz und somit dezentral durchgeführt. Gegenstand des Wettbewerbes in Bacharach war zum einen, die Ausarbeitung eines freiraumplanerischen Entwurfs für die Gestaltung des Uferbereiches am Rhein.

Der städtebauliche Teil umfasst die Neuausrichtung des südlichen Stadteingangs mit dem Nikolauskloster, der Anbindung an den Bahnhof mit einem Nahversorger sowie dem Thema Parken und Nachnutzung bestehender Gebäudesubstanz.

Das sporadisch genutzte Gelände zwischen Bundesstraße und Bahn, übernimmt in der neuen städtebaulichen Gestaltung essenzielle Funktionen für den Bedarf Bacharachs. Die einzelnen Baukörper stehen als kompakte Volumen im Grünraum und bilden einen klaren städtebaulichen Abschluss des BUGA-Geländes. Die heutzutage an prominenter Stelle platzierte Feuerwache am Stadteingang gegenüber vom Bahnhof wird nach Süden verlagert und durch einen öffentlichkeitswirksameren Stadtbaustein, das BUGA-Regal, ersetzt, der die markante Stelle im Stadtgefüge betont.

Award
Heinze Architektur Award 2023
Klimafestival

Wir freuen uns sehr über die Auszeichnung in der Kategorie „Out of the Box“ – als ausgelobtes Gesamtsiegerprojekt - beim Heinze Architektur AWARD 2023, den wir am 23. November 2023 im Rahmen des HEINZE Klimafestivals entgegennehmen durften.

Wir gratulieren allen übrigen Preisträgern!

„An der westlichen Küstenlinie Schleswig-Holsteins gründet sich dieses Haus ohne Form auf vielen kleinen Betonpfählen. Die Holzstruktur aus Stützen und Balken gleichen Formats setzt sich vorsichtig auf die kleinen Pfähle nieder, als hätte sie ein wenig Scheu vor der Allmacht des Wassers. Das Haus macht die Feuchtigkeit spürbar. Gleichzeitig wirkt es wie ein übergroßes Spielgerät auf einem Spielplatz oder wie ein Pier, der viel zu weit vom Meer entfernt steht und nicht mehr vollständig zu sein scheint. Außerdem sehen wir die Archaik und Erhabenheit einer fernöstlichen Holzkonstruktion. Dieses Gebilde öffnet unsere Vorstellungskanäle und ist im besten Sinne einfach nur inspirierend. Glücklicherweise, oder mit Intention, wer weiß es schon, endet diese anregende Art beim Betreten des Skeletts nicht. Die Anregungen zur Benutzung sind so phantasievoll wie überraschend, austauschbar und zum Aneignen gemacht. Jeder und alles scheint unter, neben, auf und in ihm oder ihr möglich zu sein. Auch wenn die Bewältigung zeitgenössischer Fragestellung der Nachhaltigkeit in gleicher Qualität bei diesem Projekt angegangen wurde, wollen wir primär betonen, dass hier etwas Seltenes passiert ist: Architektur, die Neuheit ausstrahlt.“

Grundsteinlegung Cité Foch am 10.11.2023
6 neue Wohngebäude für 88 familienfreundliche Wohnungen

Wir freuen uns, dass der Grundstein für unser Projekt Cité Foch am 10. November 2023 gelegt wurde und somit 6 Wohngebäude für 88 familienfreundliche Wohnungen in einer seriellen Modulbauweise umgesetzt werden. Gemeinsam mit der Bauherrin Bundesanstalt für Immobilienaufgaben (BImA) und der Generalplanung ALHO Systembau und der Bezirksbürgermeisterin Emine Demirbüken-Weger konnten Andrea Zickhardt und das Team HKA die Grundsteinlegung feiern. 

Mit der Siedlung Cité Foch ist zwischen den 50er und 80er Jahren des letzten Jahrhunderts das größte zusammenhängende Wohngebiet im ehemaligen französischen Sektor Berlins entstanden. Der anschließende Wandel durch den Abzug der französischen Streitkräfte wirkte sich erheblich auf die Siedlung aus und in den zurückliegenden Jahren wurden mehrere Gebäude abgebrochen. Durch die Neuplanung entsteht ein identitätsbildendes, lebendiges Quartier mit baulichen und landschaftsräumlichen Gefügen. Es werden attraktive, gemeinschaftlich nutzbare Außenräume geschaffen, um die Begegnung und das Gemeinschaftsleben zu fördern.

Humboldt Forum - Kosmograf
at the Berlin Palace

In the spacious entrance hall – like the central square in a large city – visitors are captivated by the "Kosmograf", an impressive oversized information tower that serves as a luminous city advertisement. The tower is clearly visible from all perspectives of the foyer and the surrounding balustrades, and conveys information in a visual, playful manner.

Erlebnis-Hus St. Peter-Ording

We are delighted to announce the official opening of our Erlebnis-Hus in St. Peter-Ording on August 24, 2023, contributing significantly to the area's allure as a new landmark. Within the five distinctive cubes and the outdoor area of this wooden building, inspired by the traditional local pile construction, the house warmly welcomes visitors to engage interactively and enjoy a wide array of offerings. Situated as the culmination of the nature experience promenade, the structure serves as a hub for everyone, embodying the motto of "play within, on, next to, under, and around the house."

Life Science Factory | Sartorius Quarter

Life Science Factory | Sartorius Quarter

The new Life Science Factory in Göttingen's Nordstadt offers scientists a place to take their first steps outside of academic institutions with their start-up ideas and to develop innovative technologies with an application focus. 

The Life Science Factory is part of the newly emerging Sartorius Quarter, for which the masterplan by Holzer Kobler Architekturen provides the framework of urban planning. The architecture of the Life Science Factory building with four floors of 3,300 m² is based on the central idea of this start-up centre, which is to offer newly founded life science and research companies a home in a contemporary environment with state-of-the-art infrastructure, to promote exchange among the research groups and thus to enable synergies as an investment in the future. 

The building is divided into 3 areas: On the ground floor is the spacious entrance hall and the event area with cafeteria as well as a prototyping workshop (Makerspace). On the 3 upper floors, a coworking space and 2 levels with laboratory workstations offer flexible and variable work options.

Opening at the Art Museum Bern
Taking stock. Gurlitt in review

16.09.22 - 15.01.23

The Kunstmuseum Bern accepted the legacy uf Cornelius Gurlitt (1932 - 2014) in November 2014. Since December 2021, around 1600 works of art from the estate of the art dealer Hildebrand Gurlitt (1895 - 1965) have also physically arrived at the museum. Beacuse Hildebrand Gurlitt traded in art during the National Socialist era in Germany (1933 - 1945), the inventory has been scrutinised for possible cases of Nazi looted art since 2013.

The exhibition offers in-depth insights into the Gurlitt legacy and the scolarly research of it. Individual thematic rooms explore, in detail, the ethical guidelines, legal framework and results of this unique international provenance research project. We show how the Kunstmuseum Bern responsibly fulfils its obligations in dealing with works of art in its acceptance of the Gurlitt bequest.

FRAU INNEN ARCHITEKT
Wie Frauen Häuser bauen

Fr, 06. Mai 2022, 12:30-13:30h Podiumsdiskussion

Bauen Frauen anders als Männer? Wählen sie andere Materialien aus? Wie wählen Sie Materialien aus? Wie funktioniert die Kommunikation mit der Bauherrschaft? Wie jene mit den Handwerkern?

Gibt es eine spezifisch weibliche Architektur?

Solche und ähnliche Fragen werden an der Podiumsdiskussion im Swissbau Fokus in einer hochkarätigen Frauenrunde diskutiert. Dabei geht es nicht darum, auf Konfrontation mit der noch immer von Männern dominierten Bau- und Architekturbranche zu gehen, sondern aufzuzeigen, welche neuen Perspektiven Frauen im Beruf als Architektin und Innenarchitektin mitbringen. Herangehensweisen, die neue Impulse geben können. Es soll keine frauenrechts-politsche Veranstaltung werden, sondern aus dem Leben und Schaffen von Innenarchitektinnen und Architektinnen erzählen, die bereits Gutes erschaffen haben und noch Grossartiges erschaffen werden.

Im Anschluss an die Veranstaltung findet ein Networking-Apéro statt.

Opening
Cranach - The Beginnings in Vienna

The exhibition "Cranach – The Beginnings in Vienna" in the Oskar Reinhart Collection "Am Römerholz" is realised as a collaborative show together with the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna. For the first time the focus is set on the artistic beginnings of Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553). Cranach was born in Franconia, he created his earliest known works around 1500 in Vienna. The key works presented by the two museums are supplemented for the exhibition by prestigious loans.

The nearly twenty works selected from a small number of works of this early period are shown in four rooms. In the first room, numerous portraits are arranged around the two central portraits of Dr. Johannes Cuspinian and Anna Cuspinian-Putsch. On display once again for a long time, the reverse side of the diptych is also shown. The background colour of these two pictures is taken up for the colour tone of all rooms. The detailed landscape in the background of the portraits can be experienced as an artistic video work by Georg Lendorff in the passage room. In the last two cabinets, ecclesiastical depictions of saints and crucifixion scenes follow; missals and wood engravings conclude the exhibition.

We have designed the exhibition as a harmonious installation in a collector's house, where house and work interact with each other and where the 500-year-old paintings are given a new form of reception with modern media and film. Cranach's early works will breathe and live for this extraordinary exhibition for a few exclusive weeks in Winterthur in spring 2022.

Cité Foch Berlin

***Winner of competition***

In the residential area of the Cité Foch (Reinickendorf district) – in the former French sector of Berlin – family housing will be created in a modular construction based on the new development plan. The design sets encounter, openness, and interchange as the central premise for an active neighbourhood with an identity-forming character. This is achieved by way of courtyard-like structures, smaller "pocket parks" and varying building volumes.

Award
50 best residential buildings

Schlösslipark receives a recognition in the category modular housing construction. The cubature and design of the five buildings of the Schlösslipark development fit harmoniously into the neighbouring St. Gallen Bruggen district, a residential area with a high quality of life and a strong connection to the landscape. The façades, whose multi-layered wall structure provides ideal thermal, wind and sound insulation, were constructed using a modular element construction method. For an optimal environmental compatibility, the modular construction was designed and realised on the basis of the Minergie standard. Clients: Raiffeisen Pensionskasse Genossenschaft; Stiftung für Wohnungshilfe.

Humboldt Academy at the Humboldt Forum Berlin

The Humboldt Academy in Berlin's Humboldt Forum is head office and starting point for organised guided tours for visitors and for group events as well as venue for all kinds of educational, social and cultural outreach, from workshops to talks, panel discussions, drop-ins or further projects. It thus spans 1000 square metres of space on two levels, designed to meet varying needs and requirements. In addition to service and office units for education and public programs, the available area encompasses eight generously equipped work and seminar rooms of superior quality, an activity space as well as work and play areas for up to 200 users.

For a functional and diversified room concept, a furnishing system based on modules was developed that can be adapted with great flexibility. The diversified equipment, furnishing and colour coordination give the different functional areas a very individual character. Colours, materials and lighting create specific, identity-forming accents. Sliding panels made of glass and acoustically effective curtains contribute to a communicative yet concentrated atmosphere.

The Humboldt Academy celebrates with a family festival on 21 August 2021.

Opening exhibition of the refurbished Neue Nationalgalerie

After having been closed for six years due to renovation, the Neue Nationalgalerie presents the main works of classic modern art from its collection in its opening exhibition. "The Art of Society" presents around 250 paintings and sculptures dating from 1900 to 1945 on about 3000 square metres.

The choreography of the exhibition is conceived along thematical lines and invites visitors to explore the newly renovated rooms of the Mies van der Rohe building at random. The architectural proportions and modular grid that characterise this unique building form the basis of the design for this exhibition. In the openly designed spaces, the individual works of art are specifically placed and staged, hung liberally, or distributed within the room on minimalistic pedestals. Detailed explanations are printed on filigree fabric panels and hung in the exhibition rooms. Art education is directly integrated into the exhibition. The multifunctional, puristically designed furniture and presentation walls enable a variety of outreach and participation formats.

The design approach chosen for the opening exhibition in the Neue Nationalgalerie thus focuses on a symbiosis of architecture and art, room, and content.

The Neue Nationalgalerie will reopen for visitors on Sunday, 22 August 2021.
