The program for the 2016 edition of the World Architecture Festival (WAF) has been announced. Being held from November 16-18 at the Arena Berlin, Germany, the festival will feature 3 days and 4 nights of events including conferences, lectures and seminars, architect-led city tours and networking opportunities, as well as live critiques of the 411 projects shortlisted for the 2016 WAF Awards. An all-star list of speakers will include leading architectural figures such as Patrik Schumacher, Ole Scheeren and Peter Cook.

This theme of this year’s festival is “Housing For Everyone.” Inspired by a variety of influences, markedly the condition of displaced communities of political and disaster refugees, lectures will focus on “the growing understanding of how demographics and global urbanization are forcing change; and the imperatives to create shelter at one end of the spectrum, and sufficiency for occupation and investment at the other.”

After years of waiting, Herzog & de Meuron’s Elbphilharmonie concert hall in Hamburg, Germany, finally has been given an opening date. The building will open its doors to the public with grand opening concerts by NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra on January 11 and 12, 2017, followed by a three-week festival featuring the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the Berlin-based band Einstürzende Neubauten.

The soaring glass structure, constructed on top of a historic warehouse along the River Elbe, was first envisioned in 2003, but rising costs and legal issues with the contractor led the project to be put on hold.

Zài Xīng Tǔ Mù. Sixteen Chinese Museums, Fifteen Chinese Architects

An exhibition by ANCB The Aedes Metropolitan Laboratory in collaboration with Zumtobel

China is an outstanding example of a new ‘museum boom’. The sheer number of new projects is overwhelming, and citizens, the international public as well as visitors wonder about the long-term effects on society and public urban space. The exhibition reflects on the physical and curatorial positioning of museums as drivers of progress within the socio-political and cultural landscape in China today.

Ernst Zinsser - Hidden Master of the 1950s

There is no doubt that Ernst Zinsser belongs to the significant representatives of the so called “Nachkriegsmoderne” (post-war-modernism) in Germany and yet due to a lack of medial presence he hides in shadow of his rather famous colleagues such as Friedrich Wilhelm Kraemer or Dieter Oesterlen.

"Neither the archaeologist, nor the interior designer, nor the architect, nor the painter, nor the sculptor should furnish our apartment. Who should do it, then? The answer is quite simple: Every man his own interior designer.”

Making Heimat: Inside Germany's Pavilion for the 2016 Venice Biennale

"Making Heimat. Germany, Arrival Country" is a response to the fact that over a million refugees arrived in Germany during 2015. The expectations for 2016 are similar. The need for housing is urgent, but just as urgent is the need for new ideas and reliable approaches to integration. The exhibition therefore consists of three parts: the first part surveys physical refugee shelters - the actual solutions that have been built to cope with the acute need. The second part seeks to define the conditions that must be present in an Arrival City in order to turn refugees into immigrants. The third part of the exhibition is the spatial design concept of the German Pavilion, which will make a statement about the contemporary political situation. Something Fantastic will plan and stage the architectural presentation and graphic design.

In this series, entitled Stacked, photographer Malte Brandenburg takes a closer look at the architectural merits of Berlin’s post-war housing estates. Captured against a flat blue sky, the images seek to strip away the historical and social burdens carried by the buildings, presenting them instead as pieces of pure architecture.
