Reinier de Graaf – The Masterplan

Wednesday, 24.3.2021, 9:30–10:30
registration: welcome@architecturematters.eu

About an architect and his Icarus flight to fame

Chronicling the trajectory of an architect craving recognition, “The Masterplan” unfolds as a fictional reconstruction of an architectural dream blown to dust by bigger forces. When asked to design the capital of a young African republic, Rodrigo Tomás sees the opportunity of a lifetime. Eager to outshine his famous father he accepts, but he soon discovers that not all is what it seems…

The story of his involvement comes to reveal a larger story – of an emerging nation’s struggle with colonial residue, the growing Chinese influence in Africa and the fraught workings of a global real estate market. Caught in the crossfire, the architect must recognize that his choices have unexpected implications. Will there be time to adjust course?

“The Masterplan” is the first novel by architect Reinier de Graaf, the author of the critically acclaimed “Four Walls and a Roof: The Complex Nature of a Simple Profession” (Harvard University Press, 2017) – a collection of essays on contemporary architecture praised for its stylistic wit and honest portrayal of architecture’s entanglement in political and economic power structures.

Following the Book Preview we invite you to a talk in a small circle together with Reinier de Graaf.

“The Masterplan” a novel by Reinier de Graaf

Thursday, 25.3.2021, 9:30–11:00
registration: welcome@architecturematters.eu

With: Reinier de Graaf, OMA, Rotterdam; Marcus Fairs, Dezeen, London; Olga Aleksakova, Buromoscow, Moscow + special Guest

“A novel is a piece of architecture. It’s not random wallowings or confessional diaries, it’s a building — it has to have walls and floors and the bathrooms have to work.” John Irving

Why would architects write and why would they write fiction? What does writing bring that building can’t? What is the power of words in the age of Instagram? Architecture Matters and Dezeen invite you to a discussion about Reinier de Graaf’s first work of fiction.

Chronicling the trajectory of an architect craving for recognition, “The Masterplan” unfolds as a fictional reconstruction of an architectural dream blown to dust by bigger forces. Read more.

In cooperation with Dezeen

Munich High-rises

Friday, 26.3.2021, 9:30–11:00
registration: welcome@architecturematters.eu

New high-rises for Munich – what are the next steps? What do high-rise buildings give back to the city? What drives the different stakeholders? What are the prerequisites for a sustainable high-rise? We invite you to a discussion between the city, architects, and some of Munich’s leading project developers.

With Elisabeth Merk, Munich’s Director of Urban Planning; Jürgen Büllesbach, OPES Immobilien; project developer Ralf Büschl, who envisions two high-rise buildings on the area surrounding the historically listed Paketposthalle; Tobias Sauerbier, SIGNA; and architect Christoph Ingenhoven, who has been designing high-rises for Munich, throughout Germany, and around the world.

Studies on high-rises in Munich from 1977 and 1995 are now being updated, based on a report by 03 Architekten, which was presented to the Urban Planning and Building Regulations Committee in February 2020. The draft of the new study builds on the city’s existing high-rise strategy, the so-called “Muenchner Linie” (Munich Line), balancing traditional values and new impulses.

Kinzo-Lounge: Third Places

Expert small-group talk: new working environments from urban quarter to artificial intelligence

Wednesday, 24.3.2021, 13:00–14:00

Kinzo – in 1999 it was a club in Berlin founded by three friends and named for a well-known tool manufacturer. In 2005 they founded an architectural studio together. Today, they are experts for working environments who are in tune with the times. Soundcloud, Suhrkamp, and Zalando count among their clients. Kinzo’s special approach: before starting on a design, they first take a big step back. They develop their projects from the perspective of the users, translating a company’s ideas and processes into a tailor-made design. Now they are applying their holistic design philosophy to the design of entire city quarters – boldly combining guest suites and coworking spaces, gyms and laundromats, roof gardens and daycare centres to create urban communities.

In this Lounge you’ll gain deeper insight: How can a sense of “home” be created for companies and their employees, especially given the growing importance of mobile working? What are the needs of developers and future users? How can AI be used to maximize employee wellbeing and productivity?

Hines-Workshop

Rethinking Neuperlach: ideas workshop for a former Allianz office complex

Two-part workshop:
+ Thursday, 25.3.2021, 11:00–14:00
+ Friday, 26.3.2021, 11:00–14:00
deadline to register: 10.3.2021
registration: welcome@architecturematters.eu
applications require following additional information: company profile, link to company website.

Workshop leader: Christian Meister, Managing Director, Hines

This workshop involves an actual development project. Together with Hines, a global project developer, we invite you to develop a concept for the former Allianz office complex in Neuperlach.

Neuperlach, built in southeast Munich from 1967 onwards, is one of Germany’s largest German satellite towns. Characterised by large housing estates and wide, green spaces, this district will undergo further development in the coming years, in close dialogue with its residents. The former Allianz administrative complex from the 1990s will also reconfigured for a new era: CO2-neutral, sensitively redensified without additional surface sealing, and a lively programme with a daycare centre, café-bar, gym, co-working spaces, etc. – instead of pure office use.

Small teams will develop concept studies and present them to Hines and international guests. What’s important: unbiased feedback, open and honest exchange. Winners will take part in the actual planning of this site.

This workshop is especially interesting for young, ambitious architectural offices looking to expand their activities.
