In the public imagination, landscape architecture seems still to be determined by the desire to plan for harmony between the burgeoning advance of cities, on the one hand, and nature, on the other. But this idea ceased long ago to reflect the current state of a discipline that, in the face of the radical transformation of our planet, has since evolved in a more analytic, critical direction. The premise of the exhibition ‘out there’ is that there is basically no corner of the earth left in which the effects of urbanization, massive exploitation of fossil fuels, growing mobility, and unchecked pollution of air, soil, and water are not felt. The exhibition presents ten illustrative cases from across the world that vividly portray the interaction between city and surrounding environment, water cycles, and conditions both local and global. From Casablanca via Madrid and Changde to Kigali and Medellin: these research projects analyze highly complex situations, in order to begin to develop approaches for transformation. The exhibition aims to give the public a deeper understanding of the changing concepts and strategies of landscape architecture in the present, and at the same time, to represent its growing importance for the future.

Der in Burkina Faso geborene und seit 2005 in Berlin ansässige Francis Kéré gehört zu den wichtigsten internationalen Vertretern einer sozial engagierten Architektur. Schon mit seinem ersten Werk, der Grundschule in Gando, Burkina Faso, gewann er 2004 den renommierten »Aga Khan Award for Architecture«. Ausgezeichnet wurde Kéré für die beispielhafte Verbindung von gesellschaftlichen und ökologischen Ansätzen in seiner Gestaltung. Seither hat er viele weitere nationale und internationale Preise gewonnen und ist wegen seiner innovativen und herausragenden Entwürfe weltweit bekannt. Speziell auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent ist er wegen seiner konsequenten Verknüpfung von ethischen und ästhetischen Prinzipien ein wichtiges Vorbild für die kommende Generation. In Deutschland erreichte er ab 2009 besondere Aufmerksamkeit mit dem Projekt »Operndorf Afrika« für Christoph Schlingensief.

This exhibition explores an architectural type that first developed around sixty years ago in the USA and rapidly turning into a global phenomenon that
continues to evolve through to the present day. Although its influence
has for decades been discussed by urban planners, sociologists, and even psychologists, the architectural design of shopping malls has for the most part been regarded as a peripheral issue.

The exhibition at the Architekturmuseum der TU München sheds new light upon the architectural development of shopping malls, the advent of which was heralded in the 1950s by the shopping centre designed in the United States by the Austrian architect, Victor Gruen. Initially conceived as an urban experience in the suburbs, the following decades saw malls develop into spaces visited by millions of people throughout the world every day. Many of the most recent examples are placed in cities and form an important component of our public space. The exhibition features twenty-three different examples, illustrating the various ways this
type of architecture has taken shape around the world, its effects upon
the surrounding urban context, and the shopping mall’s often spectacular
processes of transformation in contemporary times.

The comprehensive catalogue is published by Hatje Cantz (49,80 €).
 
The exhibition is sponsored by PIN. Siftung der Pinakothek der Moderne e.V.and ECE Projektmanagement G.m.b.H. & Co. KG

In response to today’s changing society and a housing market that is often geared more toward economic factors than people’s real needs, cooperative building projects are being launched all over Europe on the initiative of building groups or architects, based on individual requirements and self-determined forms of organization.

Urban-Think Tank (U-TT) is an Interdisciplinary Design Studio and its founder architects Alfredo Brillembourg and Hubert Klumpner are specialized strategic planners. U-TT, founded in 1998 in Caracas (Venezuela), focuses on the field work practice which comprises the detailed analysis of the urban situations, particularly the social and economic connections of Favelas to the city. Their research leads to practical applications for special urban conditions and conceptual approaches, aiming at the cooperation of the planned and the informal parts of the city. The teaching period in Columbia University, New York, the first international exhibitions and the publications contributed to the activities and researches of U-TT to achieve a global scale. Their extensive study on Torre David in Caracas and its exhibition „Torre David / Gran Horizonte“ in the Architecture Biennale in Venice in 2012 brought U-TT the Golden Lion Award. The exhibition “Sí / No: The Architecture of Urban-Think Tank“ shows twenty examples of multi-dimensional research approaches, analysis’ and development studies in informal housing all over the world, provoking questions and the completed projects. 

 

Since 2010, they hold the Chair for Architecture and Urban Design at the Swiss Institute of Technology, ETH in Zürich. The exhibition in Pinakothek der Moderne is a cooperation with ETH Zurich.

Paul Schneider-Esleben (1915–2005) is one of the architects who had a significant influence on postwar modernism, the construction of mega-projects in concrete, high-tech architecture, and building in the historical fabric. His Mannesmann high-rise in Düsseldorf (1954–1958) was Germany’s first steel frame structure with a curtain wall.

Die Architektur am Anfang des 21. Jahrhunderts steht in einem historischen Umbruch. Über Jahrhunderte hinweg war das Entwerfen von Architektur durch Prozesse des Zeichnens, Modellierens und durch weitere Medien bedingt und begleitet, die materiell-körperliche Spuren von der Arbeit des Architekten hinterlassen haben. Die in Nachlässen und Archiven bewahrten Skizzen, Planmaterialien und Modelle sind Grundlage architekturhistorischer Forschung und Darstellung.

Buildung Social Change

13.09.2013 - 12.01.2014

Contemporary architectural practice in Africa is witness to many new and innovative approaches in the area of socially committed building: schools, nursery schools, marketplaces, hospitals, cultural centers, sports facilities and assembly halls. It is these public buildings and commonly used spaces in particular where signs of new utility and architectural concepts are made manifest. In many cases, future users are directly involved in the design and building processes. In addition to the use of the latest technology many of the construction projects are being developed with local materials and resume dormant building traditions.
