Symposium: Teachings of Tessenow
The symposium ‘The teachings of Tessenow’ focusses on the contemporary influence of the architect Heinrich Tessenow (1876-1950). The programme is attached to the exhibition ‘Tessenow: Learning from models’.
Since the beginning of the 20st century, the buildings, drawings, and writings of Tessenow have had a substantial influence, not only in Germany, but throughout Europe. Today, Tessenow remains an important source, not only for architectural historians, but also for practicing architects, designers and educators. In most of his works, one senses a modernism that is both well aware of, and indebted to, a tradition of anonymous architecture.
Historians, architects, designers, and educators will share and discuss their acquaintances and experiences with Tessenow’s works at the international symposium ‘The teachings of Tessenow’ architectural. The invited speakers come from various places and backgrounds and their stories, in all their variety, reveal an ongoing engagement with the works of an architect that created his most important works a hundred years ago.
