11th International Bauhaus Colloquium as the highlight of Bauhaus Anniversary Week

11th International Bauhaus Colloquium as the highlight of Bauhaus Anniversary Week

On April 2-5, architectural theoreticians from around the globe will be coming to Weimar to debate the political and ethical challenges of globalization and how architecture responds to them.

In three plenary sessions 23 renowned international scientists will present their viewpoints. Among those invited are Philip Ursprung (Universität Zürich), M. Christine Boyer (Princeton University), Wolfgang Pehnt (Universität Bochum), Stanford Anderson (MIT), Philipp Oswalt (Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau) and Bill Hillier (University College London). The mornings are reserved for five workshops with a total of thirty presentations. The organizers wish to promote successful dialogue between established scientists and emerging scholars with this format.

The Bauhaus Colloquia, held in regular intervals since 1976, are the oldest and most esteemed conferences on architectural theory in the German-speaking world. Organized by the Chair of Theory and History of Modern Architecture at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, the colloquium is directed by Prof. Dr. Kari Jormakka and Prof. Dr. Gerd Zimmermann.

Opening Lectures on April 2, 2009, 10 a.m. at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Audimax, Steubenstraße 6, 99423 Weimar.
