From February 3 – March 15, renowned Architecture Forum Aedes Gallery in Berlin will be hosting an exhibition with the title Give more featuring projects by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects. Give more features nine selected architecture projects paraphrasing nine visions on how architecture can give more by adding value and positive change for people, places, and communities. More architects’ description on the exhibition after the break.
The approach of schmidt hammer lassen architects is that architecture creates change – architecture is not a goal in itself. schmidt hammer lassen architects strives to design buildings that meet the challenges of modern society; that shape the life for people and organizations; that make people come together in new ways. With the exhibition, we would like to focus on the significance of architecture as a tool for designing the framework for life. The essence of architecture is not merely a question of aesthetics, but to a greater extent a question of the value and meaning which architecture offers its users and society. The selected projects in the exhibition are presented through images, models and texts. Additionally, the exhibition integrates film clips and quotes where users, clients, and reviewers express their experience with the architecture, thus connecting the intention of the architecture to the reality. The opening on February 3 will take place at 7:30pm including speakers Dr.h.c. Kristin Feireiss, Aedes Berlin; Per Erik Veng, Head of Communication, Culture & Public Diplomacy, The Royal Danish Embassy, Berlin; David Keuning, Editor of MARK magazine; and Beate Engelhorn, Curator Aedes.
