Peter Grundmann Architektur (Berlin)
19:00 Audimax

Peter Grundmann wuchs in Röbel/Müritz und Neubrandenburg auf. Er studiert an der Ingenieurschule für Schiffbautechnik Rostock, 1994 bis 1998 Architektur an der Hochschule Wismar und 1998 bis 2001 an der Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee, wo er 2001/2002 ein Meisterstipendiat erhält und 2002 bis 2005 Entwurf unterrichtet. 2004/2005 ist er Gastdozent an der University School of Design Mysore in Indien. 1996 bis 2006 ist er als freier Architekt in Neubrandenburg tätig. Seit 1998 arbeitet er mit dem Künstler Mark Pepper (Düsseldorf) im Bereich Raum- und Videoinstallationen zusammen[1] 2008 realisierte er als Autor und Regisseur den Experimentalfilm: „ANNA – Musik und Bilder aus der Uckermark“

Grundmanns Architektur orientiert sich weniger an formalen Vorstellungen, sondern stellt die Zwänge eines "äußeren" und/oder "inneren" Kontextes in den Mittelpunkt. Vor dem Hintergrund einer fragmentierten Gesellschaft und der damit verbundenen Unmöglichkeit, Sprache oder Form zu einem übereinstimmenden gesellschaftlichen Verständnis zu führen, versucht er eine Architektur zu generieren, in der die Intention des Entwerfers zurücktritt, zugunsten einer allgmeineren Sprache.

"While every attempt of making architecture seems to drift off in rhetorics of programmatic organization and ironic provocation, form and space as such have become a rare good. In our projects we try to counter this by making direct and precise spatial proposals, formal compositions without rhetoric. This literal architecture aims for a phenomenological experience, perhaps despite of its program."

David Van Severen (°Ghent, 1978) graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Ghent, Belgium and at the Esquela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid, Spain. Since 1995 he designed and made several objects, installations and furniture. Until 2004 he worked for Stéphane Beel Architects in Ghent, Xaveer De Geyter Architects in Brussels and for Atelier Maarten Van Severen. He has been a teacher and guest critic at the Academy of Amsterdam, the TU Delft, The Academy of Arnhem, and the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam, and he's currently teaching at the University of Ghent.

Kersten Geers (°Ghent, 1975) graduated in Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Ghent, Belgium and at the Esquela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid, Spain. He was a project leader for Maxwan Architects and Urbanists in Rotterdam and for Neutelings Riedijk Architects in Rotterdam.(2001-2005). He is currently professor at the University of Ghent, and visiting professor at the School of Architecture in Mendrisio.

Together they founded OFFICE KGDVS in 2002.

Stéphane Malka
Malka Architecture (Paris (F))
19:00 Audimax

It was first through graffiti, a technique he adopted for over 10 years, that Stéphane Malka discovered the city and its untapped potential. He then began studying architecture in his home town of Marseilles before completing his studies at the school of Paris-la Villette. After a stint with Jean Nouvel, he set up his studio on his own. “Before being able to share points of view, it is essential for me to be confronted with the essence of the project. This initial approach is about thought and thus informal, and for me it requires a process of maturation and solitary reflection.” Today, he makes use of two parallel but complementary practices. “The act of dressing up the city to think better about architecture”; this is how this skilled user of wordplay and other devices (as evidenced by the titles he uses for his projects), summarises the dual approach to his production(….) As a result of his graffiti period, Stéphane Malka has maintained a strong taste for ‘soft’ resistance and the neglected urban districts that he explores in his research; his subject area is Paris, his modus operandi, spontaneity. “Given the social, economic and ecological urgency, we need to parasite the city within a logic of overlays, additions and extension of the built heritage rather than in the single one of thetabula rasa.” In a continuous quest for abandoned spaces capable of “creating new urban vitality”, his incisive and unexpected interventions base themselves on the existing buildings, forming the backdrop for a new urbanity. To do this, this optimistic humanist relies on the ability of men to rise up to implement his projects. “The methodology aims to promote a popular action as an act of resistance against town-planning restrictions.” His Petit Paris is also an opportunity to question the place of the architect in the city and in contemporary society. “We must give other answers than those raised within the scope of a commission. I look at architecture as an act of social and cultural resistance.”

architecture + communication" steht als Leitmotiv über den Arbeiten des jungen Büros. So verstehen sich Eik Frenzel und Yves Dreier nicht nur als praktizierende Architekten, sondern verfolgen immer noch ihre Tätigkeiten als Fotograf und Autor. Weiterhin dient die Kommunikation als grundlegender Bestandteil in der Entwicklung ihrer architektonischen Projekte. Dabei werden Künstler, Designer, Soziologen und Ingenieure sowie die zukünftigen Nutzer und die Bauherren in ein vielfältiges und oft unkonventionelles Zusammenspiel verwickelt.

Das Büro DreierFrenzel architecture + communication wurde 2008 von Eik Frenzel und Yves Dreier in Lausanne gegründet. Mit ihrem Sommer-Pavillion bei Genf gewannen sie erst kürzlich den Bauweltpreis 2011.
