Home Edition 2020
Let’s keep the cultural life alive! As a consequence of Covid-19, our social and cultural life has been reduced to a minimum and we all need to adapt to this unprecedented situation. Since we have a commitment with you, with the architecture scene, we came up with this new idea that is meant to lift your spirits and provide you with some genuine inspiration – at your home. Therefore, from Monday, March 23rd, onwards, each day at 7 p.m. we will be sharing one of the unique talks from the previous 35 events that we have held during the last 5 years.
TALK #17: Benedetta Tagliabue
* Please forgive the video isn’t 4K quality, it was one of our first events (2016).

AnA Hamburg 04 – This was our 1st Anniversary! On November 24, 2016, we celebrated one year of AnA with three well-know international speakers on stage: Ben van Berkel, Wolf D. Prix and Benedetta Tagliabue, who is also the architect of the event venue, the wonderful Miralles Concert Hall.
This talk is presented with the support of Aritco.
Benedetta wanders through memories of her earlier life. She explores her Italian heritage and the German roots she associates with her diligent work ethic and her love for creating. Aritco shares this love for innovation and know-how to express their Scandinavian heritage in their designs. Together with Alexander Lervik they designed the HomeLift.
Aritco HomeLift combines the best of the long tradition of Swedish craftsmanship, modern values like sustainability and individualistic expression.
Besides the customizable floor, glass and overall color theme of the lift, one its special features is the DesignWall, which comes in 9 different versions, all beautiful backgrounds created by Scandinavian photographers, artists and designers. This is a very distinguished way to put a personal touch in your your project or own home. Check out more about their high end lifts here: Aritco Home Lifts.
Virtual Feedback Cards for the Speaker
Maybe you have never attended our events, but perhaps know this already. Your effort is required! As the speakers share many of their personal experiences with us, we would like to present them a special gift, now digitally.
Please write into the text box below what you enjoyed most about the talk. Our goal is to present each speaker with personal feedback cards, as we do at our events. At our events, we collect the cards right before we start with the round-table-discussion and hand them over in a box at the end of the event.
Please participate! Our speakers love it and we want to continue with this tradition.
