Communicating Architecture

International Architecture Exhibition in Berlin
The Communicating Architecture exhibition is being staged in Hall 20 of the Berlin Exhibition Centre. The UIA Member Sections and Work Programmes have been requested to make presentations on modern architecture in the countries they come from.

The exhibition will take the form of a workshop which, together with a New Architecture Forum, will reflect specific cultural characteristics. Innovative projects and buildings within the lines drawn by the international cultural debate constitute an experiment, in which the way countries see themselves are documented in the changes in lifestyle and the transformations that have taken place in the urban and rural environment. The exhibition will focus on the most interesting and unusual developments in architecture all over the world.

Poster and Models
The International Poster Exhibition will be held in the immediate vicinity of the ICC, where the congress is being staged. It will show a cross-section of the entries submitted in response to the call for contributions and allow for presentation of many of the projects entered.

The authors of the projects will thus have an opportunity to communicate their intentions visually, thereby enhancing comprehension of their designs. The clear and precise formulation of ideas and the conclusions that can be drawn from them will make it possible to illustrate the different approaches to the theme of Resource Architecture and the many facets it incorporates. The exhibition will, therefore, provide an overview of the debate on the direction in which architecture is moving at present and offer opportunities for informal discussion and communication.

Hall 20, Berlin Exhibition Centre

Humans are the focal point of the exhibition CONSTRUCTING ATMOSPHERES. Our perception of temperature and humidity, of wind and weather brings us back to our senses. And in the end it is our senses which decide how we design the climate in the rooms, buildings, and cities that we plan and build to live in. From the cell of the skin to a space station the exhibition shows the constructing of atmospheres. With contributions from Ingenhoven Overdiek und Partner, Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners, Sauerbruch Hutton Architekten, Schneider + Schumacher, Ove Arup and Partners, Atelier Ten, Battle McCarthy and Transsolar. In commission of Messe Frankfurt GmbH the exhibition was conceived and realized by Atelier Markgraph GmbH, Frankfurt.

Hospital Construction in Germany
Developments over the past ten years

The need for the new federal states in the former East Germany to catch up in building and technical terms after the reunification of Germany triggered a building boom in the field of hospital construction and social buildings. In the old federal states of the former West Germany there was also a need for construction work, since the first generation of clinics built in the 1950s was in need of refurbishment. The exhibition arranged by the BDA’s Working Group on Hospital Construction and the Health Service contains examples of the present state of hospital construction in Germany.

Architecture and Emergencies

Interactive exhibition with supporting programme

The exhibition is a joint project organised by Habitat Forum Berlin, BDA Berlin and UIA Berlin 2002.

It focuses on special aspects of »Resource Architecture«, i.e. architecture and the response to natural and man-made disasters; architecture as a resource in handling emergencies; the social responsibility of architecture; and architecture as an ethical, aesthetic, economic and environmental challenge in emergency situations.

Examples will be provided from Bosnia, Kosovo, Turkey, India, Lebanon, Italy, Mexico, Japan and Portugal.

The exhibition will be held in the Tränenpalast (»Palace of Tears«). Built after the war and the division of Germany and Berlin to handle the movement of visitors between the western and eastern sectors of the city, it was selected as being particularly appropriate to the subject of »Architecture and Emergencies«.

This project is being sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development and various specialised agencies and charities, such as Misereor, CARE and DESWOS.

Spirit and Soul of the City
The exhibition organised by the Guardini Stiftung in Berlin focuses on the interaction between the external appearance of the city and the human notions it embodies, i.e. the expression of the city’s spirit and soul. With the help of a walk-around, virtual museum space comprising images, sketches, plans and documents, the city is presented as the embodiment of history and utopia, as a place where people live and engage in cultural activities. The presentation of past, present and future developments throws light on the city as a complex phenomenon, as a synthesis between internal aspiration and external implementation.
