Reiseuni Report – Making of: 2008 - 2018

How do we define new aims for a generalist architectural research and study programme? To generate design knowledge and site-specific solutions in a glocal mind-set? And instead of disregarding cultural differences, how might we profit from the rich and diverse university landscape of Europe?

More than 40 authors from three generations and 14 universities offer an open-access online publication in four volumes about the cooperative Master's Programme and European Architecture Dialogue which includes insights from theory and practice.

BAKPAK is a team of architects founded in 2013 by José de la Peña Gómez Millán, José M González Chamorro, Borja Navarro Ibáñez de Aldecoa, José A Pavón González, and Myriam Rego Gómez. Bakpak is a team and a method...  is a way to approach architecture: architecture unfolded. This unfolding is part of the polyhydral understanding of architecture which is not understood as the linear and consecutive resolution of problems, but as a global analysis of every possible conditioning factor. In three years of cooperative life, they won competitions in China, Ecuador, España, Polonia and Germany and their projects have been published international magazines and webs of architecture.

2016-11-24 EAD#10 Riga | European Architecture Dialogue About Difficult Built Heritage

Image
Interdisciplinary German-Baltic Symposium on strategies of transforming existing and neglected buildings, ensembles or urban environments of the younger history. Riga, 24.-25.11.2016 Tallinn University of Technology with Baltic-German University Liaison Office
Tradition, convention and memory continue through artistic translation, nevertheless and critically ‚transformed’ by the perspective of the viewer. “As if not any insight would set the frozen things in motion, thus becoming aware of the history in them.” (Theodor W. Adorno, Negative Dialektik. 1966). Experts of architecture, sociology, art history, communication theory, politics and urban design will discuss experiences and contemporary concepts about young or political built heritage of the 19th and 20th century as part of an interdisciplinary European Dialogue. In continuation of the first colloquium in Tallinn in May 2016, the topic will be discussed in a Baltic frame with experts of Estonia, Latvia and Germany. >>>Eve…
