architectureworld 2016

architectureworld goes Ruhrgebiet

Set against the impressive background of the industrial monument landscape park some luminaries of architecture will present their spectacular projects. Participants will have the chance to talk to the lecturers about their buildings and pathbreaking production techniques. What will we gain from the architecture of the future? Which types of housing are obtained by 3D printing? Will robotics play any role in the architecture firms of tomorrow? And: How do you plan smart, “thinking” facades?

13 speakers create the agenda of the two days, one of them is Spela Videcnik of OFIS, Slovenia, presenting some of their projects under the motto "inspiring limitations", including a 4-star football stadium set in a forest. Wolfgang Priedemann, CEO and namesake of Priedemann building envelope consultants, compiled a work report on smart facades, whereas Jan Wurm (ARUP, Berlin) has already realized one in the form of a bio-adaptive facade on four storey BIQ house in Hamburg. Mick Eekhout (Octatube, Netherlands) speaks from his huge experience of 30 years of design and glass structures. Peter Ebner from Vienna, who – together with 3M futurelab and an international and interdisciplinary team of students – developed a transportable mini-house by 3D printer, will speak about the future viability of this technology, while Hans Vermeulen (DUS Architects, Netherlands) converted the concept already in a canal house in Amsterdam. The international speaker panel is enriched by Hadi Teherani, Patrik Schumacher (Zaha Hadid Architects) and Holger Kehne (plasma studio).
