The Berlage Keynote: Annette Gigon

28 januari 2021 18:30 t/m 20:30 - Locatie: Oostserre & Online - Door: Communication BK

“What have we done – what should we do?” This lecture, entitled “Modeling of the Earth’s Crust,” presents the work of Gigon/Guyer in retrospect, and exemplary students’ works in prospect.

Gigon/Guyer attracted international attention with their very first building, the Kirchner Museum in Davos. Numerous other museum projects followed including the extension to the Kunstmuseum in Winterthur, Museum Liner in Appenzell, the archaeological museum and park in Kalkriese near Osnabrueck, Donation Albers-Honegger in Mouans-Sartoux, and two new buildings for the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne. Since 2012, Annette Gigon and Mike Guyer have been Professors of Architecture and Construction at the ETH Zürich.

This lecture is part of the Berlage Keynotes, an ongoing lecture series by internationally prominent practitioners, designers, and thinkers. A selection of speakers from different disciplines, including architects, artists, filmmakers, and theorists, present how their work engages with contemporary design issues and debates. Organized and hosted by the Berlage, the series is part of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment’s Public Programs held on Thursday evenings. This fall semester, speakers include Baukunst, Béka & Lemoine, Theo Deutinger, Flores & Prats, Adriaan Geuze, Gigon/Guyer, Piovenefabi, and Studio Gang.
