SteinHaus Workshop and Symposium 2012


Munich, Germany
SteinHaus Workshop and Symposium 2012 organized by Professor Mark Mack
September 29, 2012

This event in Munich, Germany celebrates the act of architectural resistance in a time of so called austerity and developer driven expectations.

Is architectural innovation dead? 
What are the trends of architecture resistance?
Can and should architects engage in social cultural change or stick to aesthetic issues?
What is Anti-Norm of today?
International students, architectural educators and practicing professionals will discuss these issues and more during a workshop and a symposium in Munich
Gunther Domeng’s SteinHaus (which numbers among the key works of experimental architecture, is one of the most striking examples of Domeng’s (1934-2012) uncompromising search for an individual form of expression, and also a convincing example for his unabated resistance) presents a unique background for this architectural event “Never Again Resistance?” and will examine the role of the architect and what it means to be a student of architecture today.
