Lecture via livestream on www.ovmf.de

Barbara Lenz | Institute of Transport Research (DLR) Berlin
June 17, 2021 | 6:30 p.m.

"New mobility - new city? Interactions between new mobility concepts and urban space" (in German).

Car traffic still dominates most cities, but measures are gradually being implemented that provide and promote environmentally friendly and, above all, less space-consuming mobility alternatives. In addition to traditional public transport and bicycles, these include the shared use of vehicles, especially in the context of car or ridesharing.

Using examples from Germany and Europe, Barbara Lenz will show in her lecture which ideas and options are behind the term "new mobility concepts" and which framework conditions are necessary for their success, but above all for the expected effect on public space and traffic in the city.

Barbara Lenz was director of the DLR Institute for Transport Research in Berlin until the beginning of 2021. At the same time, she taught and conducted research as a professor of transport geography at Humboldt University in Berlin. She is currently a member of the EU Mission Board on Climate Neutral and Smart Cities. Since 2019, she has been leading one of six working groups of the German National Platform for the Future of Mobility and is a member of the expert commission for the monitoring report "Energy of the Future" of the German government.

Lecture Wilfried Kuehn on 10.06.2021 at www.ovmf.de

Lecture via livestream on www.ovmf.de

Wilfried Kuehn | Kuehn Malvezzi | Berlin

"Urban Nature - An inner-city rooftop greenhouse with vertical garden by Kuehn Malvezzi and atelier le balto." (in German)

How can gardens in the city also be public and become places for the general public? This was the challenge Kuehn Malvezzi Architects and atelier le balto faced in their recently realized design for a commercial building with a rooftop greenhouse and vertical garden at Oberhausen's Altmarkt.

The building-integrated rooftop greenhouse, planned in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute / Umsicht, is an expression of infarming, in which inner-city cultivation enables sustainable plant production without transport routes to the consumer. At the same time, it reduces energy consumption, carbon emissions and resource use by utilizing the office building's material cycles for plant cultivation.

Wilfried Kuehn is a partner in the architectural firm Kuehn Malvezzi in Berlin and a professor of interior design and drafting at the Vienna University of Technology.

You can watch the lecture on June 10 at 6:30 p.m. in the player on the home page of the Oskar-von-Miller Forum (no registration required). The player will go live at 6:30 pm. Questions to Wilfried Kuehn can be sent via e-mail to vortrag@ovmf.de during the lecture.

Lecture „The Future of Conviviality in a City Reshaped by the Pandemic” by Deyan Sudjic on May 20, 2021

Lecture via Livestream on www.ovmf.de

Deyan Sudjic | Design Museum London

„The Future of Conviviality in a City Reshaped by the Pandemic” on 20. May 2021 | 6:30 pm

The high-density, car-free, multicultural model of city life that urban planners, architects and politicians have considered desirable for the past 25 years has been turned upside down by months of lockdowns due to the pandemic. What will happen next in the contemporary city is not a question of a return to normalcy according to Deyan Sudjic. Online shopping, working from home, and online conferencing had impacted city centers before as well. But more and more, there is a heightened awareness of how fundamental the age-old idea of shared urban living is.

Deyan Sudjic is Emeritus Director of the Design Museum, London, Professor of Architecture and Design at Lancaster University, critic and curator.

You can watch the lecture in English on May 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the player on the homepage of the Oskar-von-Miller Forum (without registration). The player will go live at 6:30 pm. Questions for Deyan Sudjic during the talk can be emailed to vortrag@ovmf.de or sent to lecture@ovmf.de.

Lecture Eike Roswag-Klinge "Creating Natural Change - Strategies for a Building of Tomorrow" on May 6, 2021

Lecture via livestream on www.ovmf.de

Eike Roswag-Klinge | Technical University Berlin

"Creating Natural Change - Strategies for a Building of Tomorrow"
on May 6, 2021 | 6:30 p.m.

The contribution of construction to man-made climate change and resource depletion is well known. This will not be achieved through more efficient technology, reduced consumption and the use of renewable energies alone. The global goal must be a climate-adapted low-tech building based on local building products.

The office ZRS Architekten Ingenieure and the Natural Building Lab of the TU Berlin are researching, planning and realizing model projects in different cultures and climate zones. Prof. Eike Roswag-Klinge, Dipl.-Ing. Architekt BDA and one of the initiators and managing directors of ZRS Architekten Ingenieure and head of the Natural Building Lab, will present this in the lecture.

You can watch the lecture on May 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the player on the homepage of the Oskar-von-Miller Forum (without registration). The player will go live at 6:30 p.m. Questions for Eike Roswag-Klinge can be sent by e-mail to vortrag@ovmf.de during the lecture.

Online lecture: diversity, beauty, benefit - the three zone garden, an insect paradise on 20.01.2021

Online lecture by GreenCity in cooperation with ZSK-SP8 "Colorful Ribbons":

Jan. 20, 2021, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Online via Zoom

Diversity by principle: "Species richness by impoverishment", because sometimes more grows on nutrient-poor soils - wild hedges, fruit trees and flower meadows provide diverse food and habitat. Besides wild bees and butterflies, frogs, toads, newts, lizards and a variety of birds feel at home in the three-zone garden.

Markus Gastl talks about his passion for creating an insect paradise. For years he has been using every conceivable material, applying permaculture methods and designing entirely with all his animal co-inhabitants in mind. He shows how stone pyramids, gravel and dead wood can be essential components of a natural and insect-friendly garden. In the process, Gastl creates an oasis for insects, a "mosaic of habitats," as he calls it.

Online lecture: Insect-friendly garden design in times of climate change on 15.12.2020

Online lecture by GreenCity in cooperation with ZSK-SP8 "Colorful Ribbons":

Dec. 15, 2020, 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Online via Zoom

Permanent high, constantly above 30 °C. Three months without rain, Sicilian conditions. Temperature records, one after the other. How are our insects doing with it? What kind of garden would be best for them? Do recipes focusing on native wild plants still work? A look over the principles of natural gardening and into various nature-oriented gardens shows that such natural gardens with their insect-friendly plants are part of the solution.

Reinhard Witt, who has been active in the field of near-natural garden design for decades, will provide us with exciting and helpful insights into his wealth of experience. He will show with fantastic pictures how to create an attractive garden - for humans and animals - even in times of weeks of drought, without complicated technical precautions.
