ARCHITECTURE MATTERS builds on the difference good architecture can make. Architecture not simply reduced to beautiful forms or as a cost driver, but as a cultural force that successfully captures and interprets societal life in all its diversity. A catalyst for renewal. ARCHITECTURE MATTERS is aimed at architects, those working in the real estate industry, policy makers, manufacturers and interested members of the public.
Stefan F. Höglmaier discusses, in a panel, the cultural role architects play in and their relevance to society and how they interact with the real estate industry.
What role do curators, artists and visitors play at an exhibition? Who is spectator and who protagonist? Who is curator and who artist? How do the usage and perception of space change during the course of an exhibition with several stages? These questions are the focus of our new exhibition "Im Raum mit_FATTINGER ORSO" by the Viennese architect duo that opens at 7 p.m. on Thursday the 18th of February.
The exhibition runs until the 28th of July 2016
It is a Euroboden tradition not to send gifts to customers and business partners at Christmas, but rather support worthy projects - in the spirit of architecture culture - instead. Our help in 2015 went to provide initial treatment for refugees suffering from acute traumatic stress in Hamburg. Euroboden is bearing the cost of renting the necessary rooms in the therapy centre that is operated by the Grone Foundation. Euroboden is also planning a project together with architect
Peter Haimerl to create low-cost housing that is also to be managed by the Grone Foundation.
Stefan F. Höglmaier, the Munich Urban Planning Officer
Prof. Dr. Elizabeth Merk and the architects Arno Brandlhuber and
Peter Haimerl hold discussions about housing development of the future: all larger towns and cities are faced with the challenge of satisfying the increasing demand for affordable housing. How can we plan things differently in order to transform the housing market of the future so that greater quality can be realised for less money?
The panellists attempt to identify promising approaches.
"The Schusterbauer is dead - long live the Schusterbauer!" With a wry wink to the above proclamation, artists Jutta Görlich and
Edward Beierle have identified their own personal "Schusterbauer" in
Stefan F. Höglmaier, the new owner of the Schusterbauerhaus in Riem. And since architecture and art serve to mutually inspire one another, sponsoring the art project "Stay awhile!" by beierle.goerlich is an expression of the Euroboden architectural culture.
