Oskar von Miller Forum: Lecture by Wolfgang Sattler (lecture in German)

Design as a tool for transformation

04.07.2024 | 18:30 | Oskar von Miller Forum and Livestream

Design goes beyond the creation of visually appealing objects. The major challenges of our time, design is faced with the task of taking into account the various influences and possible and impacts in a holistic way. The simultaneous consideration of social, ecological and and economic aspects is not a wish, but an absolute necessity. Where are the interfaces between design, technology and social challenges? Wolfgang Sattler gives an insight into his experiences as a designer and his time as a professor at the at the Bauhaus University in Weimar.

Building Turnaround

20.06.2024 | 18:30 | Oskar von Miller Forum and livestream

Planetary boundaries are also increasingly felt in Europe. As a key driver of the current climate crisis, the building industry is called upon to develop new approaches to significantly reduce the massive consumption of resources and CO2 emissions. How can we still build today and what can future-oriented architecture look like? Andrea Klinge provides insights from her work and the discourse at ZRS Architects and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.

Oskar von Miller Forum: lecture by Eva Kail

Targeted group-oriented urban planning

16.05.2024 | 18:30 | Oskar von Miller Forum and livestream

The lecture will trace the long history of target-group oriented planning in Vienna and its influence on urban development, which began 33 years ago with the exhibition “Who owns public space – everyday life for women in the city”. The diverse thematic and methodological approaches and their concrete added value are illustrated by numerous Viennese examples. The impending post-fossil transformation of urban structures poses a great challenge, but also offers great potential for many different groups when viewed through a gender lens.

Oskar von Miller Forum: lecture by Anupama Kondoo

Building knowledge - Building community

06.06.2024 | 18:30 | Oskar von Miller Forum and livestream | lecture in English

Anupama Kundoo advances the idea that architectural imagination must transcend design and enter the realms of materials science and economics where some of the bigger questions reside. She will discuss the thrust of her inquiries which have been to find practical ways to fulfill the universal human aspiration for refuge, purpose, and social engagement through extensive material research and experimentation. She will discuss ‘Human Time as a Resource’ in the quest for new materiality and critically examine the way the time value of money has nudged us towards code-based design and the industrialized production of building components and, sometimes, even entire buildings themselves.

Regenerative 'Ecolopes' on the Meridian Line by Dr. Mike Wells

Tuesday, September 6th I 5:00 pm CEST I Online

Mike Wells is both a professional ecologist and an ecourbanist, with over 30 years of consultancy experience and over 40 years in ecological science. He co-founded Biodiversity by Design Ltd in 2006 with the express aim of focusing on creative multifunctional and restorative ecology.

He will talk about two large-scale regeneration projects in London which have been the focus on cutting edge thinking on ecourbanism since the mid-1990s. The first of these, the Greenwich Peninsula Regeneration was driven by the need to provide a site to host the celebrations for the turn of the millennium (including the Millennium Dome – now the 02 Arena) and was designed at the time of what was then called in the UK the ‘Urban Renaissance’. The second, the creation of Stratford Athletes Village (now East Village, Stratford) from a brownfield site was progressed initially for the 2012 Olympic Games and has since become one of the most successful rental sector housing projects in London. Dr Mike Wells was the ecological designer for both projects and has remained involved till the present day in undertaking long-term research on the biodiversity of these sites and their delivery of ecosystem services.  He describes some of the key successes and lessons learned and highlights the importance of these projects as exemplars on the global meridian line and what relevance that might have to the development of true ecourbanism in developing countries.

Oskar von Miller Forum: Lecture by Tina Saaby

Feeling the city

29.06.2023 | 18:30 | Oskar von Miller Forum and livestream

“Feeling the city” is about the physical framework and layout of our cities and homes. How we can understand humans, the way we live our lives, how we can affect our quality of life, creating better frameworks for joy, relationships, coexistence, communities and physical well-being. City makers of tomorrow know that daylight releases endorphins, that fresh air makes us think more clearly, that high ceilings create greater creativity, that relationships trigger dopamine and that eye contact, touch, smiles create feelings of happiness and caring.

In her lecture Tina Saaby will share some of her learnings from being city architect in Copenhagen and Gladsaxe, designing the city as partner in WITRAZ architects and from conversations with citymakers, politicians and citizens around the world. She will reflect on element as climate change, placemaking, bikeculture, nature in the city and how to create cities for and with people.

Oskar von Miller Forum: Lecture by Bernardo Bader

Untranslatability of Architecture

22.06.2023 | 18:30 | Oskar von Miller Forum and livestream

For twenty years now, Bernardo Bader’s oeuvre has combined his deep awareness of regionality with the skilful execution of spaces that are true to the material. Characteristic architectures have been created that are distinguished by the combination of refined and atmospheric use of materials and precision craftsmanship worked out down to the last detail. The regional bond of architecture and the characteristic relationship between the interiors and the qualities of the immediate surroundings distinguish his work – each project is a unity of nature and culture.

In “finding rather than inventing”, the specific conditions of the place and the society operating within it manifest themselves and evoke what he calls an “untranslatability” of architecture in his projects.

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.

June 10, 2021 | 6:30 pm

"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.

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.

Starting on January 19, the City of Munich's annual exhibition "The Sustainable City - Urban Development, Open Space, Climate Protection" will take place.

Three discussion events, five city walks and a youth workshop invite people to engage in a dialog about the sustainable city. Digital, yet very personal guided tours through the exhibition present topics and projects. In addition, film clips and picture galleries show impressions from the hall, which is closed for the time being due to the pandemic.

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.
