Norman Foster has curated two spaces for the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale: the ‘Gateway’ installation at the head of the Arsenale, which is the first gallery that visitors pass through within the Corderie. The second space is in the Central Pavilion in the Giardini.

Norman Foster has chosen to interpret the theme of Common Ground in two ways. First in words, as the body of knowledge represented by the names of generations of architects, critics, designers, landscape architects and planners, who from antiquity to today have influenced the urban world. Secondly though images, which show the communal gathering spaces that bring us all together socially, outside or inside buildings.

JOH3 Preview – Gallery Weekend Berlin 2012

On Gallery Weekend, “JOH3″–J. MAYER H.’s newly-opened residential building in Berlin’s Mitte district–will open its gallery space with carpets and furniture from J. MAYER H.’s 2011 exhibition “Rapport” at Berlinische Galerie. The exhibition was organized as a collaboration between the Berlinische Galerie, Euroboden and Vorwerk. A model of the building will also be on view. Property development group Euroboden has realized J. MAYER H. architects’ unique building on Johannisstraße, which neighbors both Museum Island and Friedrichstrasse. With its multi-unit structure and green interior courtyard, the building is an extraordinary reinterpretation of the classic Berliner apartment house. The sculptural design of the suspended slat facade draws on the notion of landscape in the city, a quality visible in the graduated courtyard garden and the building’s silhouette and layout. The integrated design concept, which incorporates everything from façade to stairwells, elevators to apartment interiors, promises a unique spatial and living experience with an eye to high design.

Give more – schmidt hammer lassen architects exhibition opens in Berlin

On the 3rd of February 2012, renowned Architecture Forum Aedes Gallery in Berlin opens 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.

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 organisations; 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,” said Founding Partner at schmidt hammer lassen architects Mr. Bjarne Hammer.

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 exhibition will run from 3rd February to 15th March 2012.
