Building on landmarked sites: The idea of the place

The University of Salzburg, together with the Austrian Federal Monuments Office and the Salzburg Architecture Initiative, is hosting a three-day conference on the handling of listed sites. Contributions from Austria, Germany, and Switzerland will be presented and report on architectural practice, the experiences of the monument offices, and the scientific perspective.

Volker Staab will talk on the idea of place, in which he questions the commitment to a seemingly correct strategy in dealing with monuments and uses built examples to show how different the approach can be when it is developed from the building task and the site. The question of whether the original substance or rather the idea of the site is the key to an appropriate strategy also plays a decisive role here.

Talk series 'On the Duty and the Power of Architecture'

Klaus Bollinger, a member of the section Baukunst, presents current projects of his office Bollinger+Grohmann under the premises of aesthetics, functionality, and sustainability. In the following conversation, he discusses with Volker Staab the responsibility and the possibilities of planning offices' influence on building culture. Our office has developed an innovative tower structure for the extension of the Bauhaus Archive in Berlin along with Bollinger+Gromann, which is currently under construction.

4th Aachen Conference on the Identity of Architecture: Construction

Far spanning, space-creating, referential and figurative - these four aspects of construction were central to our work on the Museum of the Bavarian Kings project in Hohenschwangau. The project is an example of our understanding that only the combination of contextual influences, programmatic and spatial requirements with a coherent construction concept, enables architectural quality. We like to replace the term constructive with the term structural. The focus of our approach is not the technical dimension of supporting and joining but rather the interplay of material, spatial characteristics, and the resulting logic of joining. It results in an inner grammar of the building structure, which underlies each of our buildings in different formulations.

Architecture in Context

Work lecture series of the LWL and the BDA Münster-Münsterland

The basic idea of the lecture series 'Architecture in Context' is the reflection and mediation of the manifold aspects of context-related building, focussing on the urbanistic solution approach and the historical reference to the found situation. In addition, a social-cultural localization of the chosen structural solution takes place.
