Opening at 6:30 on 28 August 2014
29 August to 21 September. 10am to 5pm. Tuesday to Sunday.
The exhibition presents fourteen projects by young architects from Germany that have been completed abroad mainly since 2004. The selected examples from construction, interior design, urban design and landscape architecture show how these architects approach working in foreign environments, how they redefine and add to existing buildings, and how they create new ones under unusual conditions. They come up with sensitive solutions for challenges in architecture today, always with an eye on the future, sustainability, and new technologies.
Contrary to today’s global media interest in the spectacular and the star, this exhibition presents innovative architectural projects that confidently and quietly take a pragmatic approach, concentrating entirely on the locations for which they were created. An exhibition by the Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations e. V. (ifa), Stuttgart, in cooperation with the Federal Chamber of German Architects e. V. (BAK), Berlin, Media partner: Deutsche Welle (DW).
