Fachseminare: „Visions and New Roles for National Cultural Venues“ am 5. und 6. September in Berlin

Fachseminare: »Visions and New Roles for National Cultural Venues«

5. und 6. September, je 13.00 bis 17.00 Uhr


In connection with their current exhibition »Flagships of Culture – Neue nordische Kultur­häuser« (New Nordic cultural venues), the Nordic Embassies in Berlin have invited Nordic architects, city planners and cultural center executives, along with German experts, to discuss outstanding individual works of architecture and their impact on today’s city development and cultural life.

Prestigious cultural buildings can become landmarks in a city’s structure and influence urban architecture in general, both aesthe­tically and technically (e.g. regarding energy efficiency, acoustics, innovative materials, etc.). They can also set an example for the development of entire urban areas, such as transforming old waterfronts into new public spaces.

With a close look at the six Nordic buildings, along with German projects like Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, the discussion will focus on various stages of the planning and building process.

Due to limited capacity, we kindly ask you to register via e-mail: info@nordischebotschaften.org. Please indicate which day(s) you would like to attend.
