Denkwerkstatt 2023: High Modern Age adapt to the loads

DENKWERKSTATT HOCHMODERNE ERTÜCHTIGEN – High Modern Age adapt to the loads

PUBLIC CONFERENCE

6.July till 7.July 2023  at Aula of House der Wissenschaft, Braunschweig

The third think tank of the DFG priority program cultural heritage construction is based on the annual theme 2023 of the SPP 2255 “High Modern Age adapt to the loads – cultural concepts and ingenious strategies for a difficult heritage”. Half a century after the end of the high-modern age, the structural heritage of this rather history-contemptuous building today often needs to be upgraded. However, the functional, material and component optimizations specific to that era, the components that were once mass-produced but are no longer available today, or the limited useful lives calculated from the beginning do not exactly make it easy for the actors confronted with this. These and other aspects of the history, present and future of upgrading state-of-the-art building structures will be dealt with in detail in lectures by experts from various disciplines and put up for discussion.

DENKWERKSTATT 2022: AUTHENTICITY – A ‘GUIDING STAR’ ON THE TEST BENCH OF HIGH MODERNITY

Kategorie: Denkwerkstatt, öffentliche Veranstaltung
Published on: 19. September 2022

The second think tank of the DFG focus program Cultural Heritage Construction addressed the concept of authenticity, a central value standard of monument preservation action, whose efficiency in dealing with the building constructions of the high-modern has hardly been examined up to now. Renowned experts traced the challenges, criteria and processes of concrete handling in this special area. On closer inspection, the ‘guiding star of monument preservation’ turned out to be a fragile and dynamic construction.

DENKWERKSTATT 2021 – BUILDING AT THE LIMIT. TRADITIONS AND TRANSFORMATIONS OF AN HIGH-MODERN GUIDING PRINCIPLE.

Kategorie: Denkwerkstatt
Published on: 27. July 2021

In lectures and interdisciplinary discussions, the first think tank of the priority program Cultural Heritage Construction addressed two apparently almost opposite facets of ultra-modern construction, which were put up for discussion with the annual theme 2021 “Building at the Limit”: exploring structural limits at the limit of what was previously conceivable while minimizing the use of materials on the one hand and the confinement of structural thinking in codified limits of what is permissible by a previously unthinkable regulatory apparatus on the other.
