Regional aspects

The Pre-Conferences organised by the BDA regional associations in seven German cities from 19 to 21 July 2002 form the prelude to the XXI World Congress of Architecture.

The events in Essen, Frankfurt/ Main, Hamburg, Leipzig/Dessau, Munich, Rostock and Stuttgart will address specific aspects of the congress theme, Resource Architecture. They will provide a framework for an international exchange of ideas with a special emphasis on contacts between representatives of the different professions present. Participants will thus have an opportunity to see not just Berlin, but another German city and its surroundings, too, and find out how it has developed in architectural, historical and political terms.

Essen Pre-Conference

The Ruhr Area – The Challenge of Change

The main response to the process of structural change in the Ruhr area has been to transform the relics of its industrial past into opportunities for the future by linking urban development projects with retraining and employment schemes and concentrating on art and culture rather than coal and steel. Over the past twenty years, numerous projects have been put into practice that have set new international standards. The areas vacated by heavy industry have been occupied by new service centres, housing estates and green belts. The cities in the Ruhr area are doing what they can to enhance their economic attractiveness while paying heed to environmental concerns. Only by combining the two can they meet the challenges of the future. The main conference venue, the Zollverein Mine, recently listed as a World Cultural Heritage site, is the symbol of an era that left its stamp on the region and a sign of structural change.

Hamburg Pre-Conference

7.5 metres above sea level
Planning and Building on the River Elbe in Hamburg


Architecture – Sustainability – Environment
Hamburg’s future lies on the River Elbe. That in itself is nothing new. Over the centuries, the river and the port have influenced Hamburg’s development and given the city its unmistakeable character. In the coming decades, Hamburg will be re-examining the close relationship between the city and the water and assessing the potential it holds for the future. The numerous port areas in the city centre that are no longer in use as a result of structural changes harbour great potential for the development of the city in the years ahead. Hamburg stretches some 20 kilometres along the water and its riverfront is gradually taking on a new appearance. Emerging along the northern and southern banks of the river is a mixture of residential, commercial and recreational buildings – the initial contours of a 21st century European city.

The future of these riverside locations is already taking shape in many places. Major projects, such as the HafenCity, the Harburg river port, the extension of the plant producing the Airbus A 380 and the many other projects in the »string of pearls« along the northern bank of the Elbe are well enough advanced to be worth visiting and discussing.

What could be more logical than to stage a conference where things are on the move? A boat trip along the Elbe, presentations and discussions on the water, and opportunities to visit some of the projects will illustrate Hamburg’s return to the river.

Topics:

Harburg river port
1. City and environment – innovative urban and infrastructure planning in the age of the media, taking Harburg Channel as an example
2. New architecture – design, material and energy

Airbus A 380
1. Captures the image of large-scale industrial architecture in the quality triangle of economic efficiency, productivity and environmental compatibility
2. Mobility, city and energy conservation – the foundations of modern development planning

»String of Pearls« along the northern bank of the River Elbe
1. Building envelope as a »living system«, buildings as energy systems
2. The life cycles of buildings and their importance for sustainability

The HafenCity
1. Users, uses, mixed usage, partnerships (UUMP) in the HafenCity – sustainability in architecture and urban development with special reference to the influencing factors of UUMP
2. Quality management in the »construction site company« – energy and material flows, contracting and controlling
3. HafenCity: Inner development of the city – a dimension of sustainable urban development and the sparing use of resources
4. The sustainable city – a universal concept (architecture – technology – environment)

Leipzig/Dessau Pre-Conference

Region in the Throes of Change
Leipzig/Dessau – 12 years after the political changes

Region with a changing profile

The political changes of 1989 were largely propelled by events in Leipzig – for good reasons. Leipzig has a long tradition as a commercial city with an established middle-class culture. Up to the Second World War it was a hub of trade, commerce, science and culture in Central Germany.

Dessau and Halle experienced an economic upswing with the advent of industrial production in the first half of the 20th century. The chemical production plants near Halle and the Junkers aircraft factories in Dessau date from this period and the transfer of the Bauhaus to Dessau following its enforced exile from Weimar was not purely accidental.

After the Second World War and the subsequent division of Germany, the Leipzig/Halle/Dessau region became the major industrial and commercial centre in the former East Germany and was hard hit by ruthless industrial expansion.

Since reunification, the region has had to battle with the legacy of an industrial strategy marked by a merciless plundering of resources with little regard for the environment. Extensive restructuring programmes have been launched in an attempt to revitalise the towns and the countryside with economic development schemes being introduced to reactivate the region.

The pre-conference will focus on this traditional commercial region in Central Germany and illustrate the successes it has achieved in the process of transformation and the problems it is still encountering.

Munich Pre-Conference

The Quality of the City
Pre-Conference as part of the first Week of Architecture Munich 2002


In the push and pull between continuity and change and tradition and innovation Munich has developed in recent years from the »clandestine capital« into a »global city« and the centre of a New Economy. Despite the growing demands placed on it as a major business location, the city has been able to maintain its distinctive characteristics, regional identity and quality of life thanks to a circumspect planning policy. Respect for the existing fabric has ensured the careful integration of new developments into the given urban structures. New neighbourhoods with modern use and design concepts are emerging on converted sites in the inner city. The region is participating in the changes by setting up centres of excellence and cultural facilities. The surrounding area with its delightful countryside is of the utmost importance for the quality of life in the city.

The Munich Pre-Conference forms part of the city’s first-ever Week of Architecture that is being held from 12 to 21 July 2002 under the patronage of the Lord Mayor of Munich, Christian Ude. The cooperation planned with numerous institutions and creative artists will illustrate the key role played by architecture in the cultural life of the city. Thematic exhibitions and meetings with other architects and planners will provide food for thought and discussion moving well beyond the Munich region.

The Munich Pre-Conference offers the UIA Congress participants from home and abroad a unique opportunity to look around the city and see how the clichés compare with reality.

Rhine-Main Pre-Conference

Resource Cityscape
Frankfurt, Darmstadt, Wiesbaden and Documenta 11


The sharpening competition between cities for investment and jobs has made politicians acutely aware of the competitive disadvantages arising from a lack of individuality. From the late eighties onwards, therefore, whole programmes have been devised to enhance the identity of cities. Initially, examples from the past served as models.

Increasing importance now attaches to market factors, the quality of life and responsibility for the environment. The new communication and information technologies have provided additional impetus.

Resource Cityscape
In this situation, politicians and businessmen expect town planners and architects to provide suggestions as to how cities can be made more attractive. In constructing technically sophisticated buildings of spectacular design, architects are responding to the needs of the media society. As a rule, however, the construction of individual buildings is not enough to exert a long-term influence on the character of a city. If its image is to be boosted in the public eye, the entire cityscape must be taken into consideration. Success in this respect can only be achieved by means of long-term programmes with a sound economic basis, a social perspective and a clear cultural dimension.

Cityscape, City Marketing and City Tuning
What is referred to today in a free market economy as city marketing and city tuning has often been put into practice in the past, including in the Rhine-Main area around Frankfurt.

The city centre of Wiesbaden, for example, which by 1900 had been restructured and equipped with many new buildings in the space of just a few decades, is now regarded as one of the best-preserved examples of historicist architecture and urban development in Germany.

Darmstadt boasts several Art Nouveau masterpieces in the shape of Mathildenhöhe Park, the exhibition buildings, the Wedding Tower and the residential buildings designed by the artists and architects grouped around Josef Maria Olbrich and Peter Behrens.

Frankfurt am Main is closely associated with the period of Heroic Modernism thanks to the workers’ housing estates designed by Ernst May. However, it is only in recent decades that the smallest of the world’s global cities developed the striking cityscape it has today. Among its outstanding features are the newly designed Römerberg, the Museumsufer and the skyline with the Commerzbank skyscraper, the Main Tower, the Trade Fair Tower and the Torhaus.

Rhine-Main Pre-Conference 2002
With this in mind, the Frankfurt Pre-Conference will address issues of urban design and architecture using the Rhine-Main region as an example. The conference will comprise presentations, excursions and an exchange of ideas and opinions between the participants. It will be rounded off by a visit to the Documenta 11 in Kassel.

Rostock Pre-Conference

Migration in Europe
New Structural Opportunities in the Rostock region


The migration of large groups of people has been a driving force for development throughout the history of mankind. Present-day migration to regions offering the best prospects of employment is a continuation of this tradition. It is producing more and more empty spaces both in towns and the countryside.

Those left behind are finding it increasingly difficult to preserve and modernise the existing infrastructure. The emergence of new forms of living and working and the need to keep up with »general developments« provide major challenges for architecture, urban planning and regional development in Europe.
The anti-migration strategies employed to date, ranging from modernisation to the creation of new jobs at the local level and the upgrading of outdated infrastructure, appear increasingly out of touch and are failing to achieve their objectives.

New paradigms for the disadvantaged regions in Europe need to be worked out. They will be based on an »acceptance« that is not tantamount to resignation. It is precisely in the generation and highlighting of glaring differences that the new paradigms can find their logical consistency.

Concentration on the conurbations enables resources to be conserved and the open countryside to reassume its unspoiled character.

Will the social objective of providing equal opportunities for all be achieved by new forms of state and private planning? Is globalisation leading to a new form of regionalism? Will it be possible to reverse the process of urban sprawl? The Pre-Conference will take stock of and continue the debate in summer 2002.

Statements by participants, many of whom have come a long way to attend the congress, and a detailed exchange of ideas and opinions between experts will be a crucial element of the Pre-Conference.

Stuttgart Pre-Conference

From Modernism to the European City
International Architecture Forum on the 75th Anniversary of the Weissenhof Housing Estate


Stuttgart is staging an International Architecture Forum almost 75 years to the day after the completion of the Weissenhof housing estate and the opening of the German Werkbund exhibition. This anniversary provides an opportunity to address modern architecture from differing standpoints. The conference will focus its attention on the
· Roots, Visions, Consequences and Architectural Heritage of Modernism
· Prospects for the European City as a Focus of Urban Identity and Social Coherence

The Weissenhof housing estate
The Weissenhof housing estate is one of the outstanding examples of the buildings designed by the Neues Bauen movement. The estate was completed in 1927 in response to the movement’s proclaimed objective of providing a model for city housing of the future. The participants in the project were the leading pioneers of avant-garde Modernist architecture: Mies van der Rohe, Le Corbusier, Gropius, Hilberseimer, Scharoun, Max and Bruno Taut, Poelzig, Behrens, Oud, Stam, Döcker and others.

The Weissenhof housing estate reflects the social and cultural changes that took place in the 20th century and is thus an important point of reference for an assessment of the future of urban development. Despite the damage it suffered in the Second World War and the changes it has undergone since, the Weissenhof housing estate remains a very distinctive architectural ensemble.

Le Corbusier’s semi-detached house is to be opened to the public. Following extensive refurbishment by the Wüstenrot Foundation, the building will welcome its first visitors in late 2003, when they will find extensive information and a home restored to the condition it was in in1927.

Positions and trends
In the 1920s, Stuttgart was described as Germany’s most modern city. While the Weissenhof housing estate is certainly the best-known architectural project from this pioneering period, it is by no means the only one. Fierce debates raged here between the architectural avant-garde and the traditionalists grouped around Bonatz and Schmitthenner.

The 1927 Building Exhibition at the Weissenhof marked a breakthrough for the Neues Bauen movement and paved the way for an »international style«. The architectural debate between the traditional and the modern has lost none of its controversy right up to the present day and is closely bound up with the search for new models for a viable city.

Positions and trends are frequently associated with architects who have worked or taught in Stuttgart, in some cases as protagonists of the Stuttgart School. They came to the fore in the 1950s when the city had to be rebuilt after the war and there was a need to find an appropriate form of architectural expression. In Stuttgart’s more recent architectural history the lines along which architecture has developed are reflected in the buildings designed by Günter Behnisch and James Stirling/ Michael Wilford, whose ensemble comprising the New State Gallery, the College of Music and the History Building will be completed in 2002. Important innovations in building construction associated with the names of Fritz Leonhardt and Frei Otto have their origins in Stuttgart.

Stuttgart is building for the future
Today, the capital of Baden-Württemberg is working hard on building its future as an economic, political and cultural centre in the south-west of Germany. The developments in the city centre and the outskirts are designed to enhance the cultural profile, the quality of urban life and the technological competence of the city. Special importance attaches to architecture in the creation of distinctive spaces in an increasingly uniform world.

The International Architecture Forum 2002 provides an opportunity to visit Stuttgart and the state of Baden-Württemberg, where there is a wide range of modern buildings, civil engineering works and urban development projects.
