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 #36: Eckhard Gerber
This talk (held in German) is presented by swissFineLine.

About Eckhard Gerber

Eckhard Gerber was born in 1938 in Oberhain, Thüringen. He first left the West High School in West Berlin in 1957. He fled to the Federal Republic of Germany in 1958 and completed his studies in architecture at the Technical University of Braunschweig. In 1966, Eckhard Gerber began his independent activity as a freelance architect with Manfred Lange under the name “Werkgemeinschaft 66”. Since 1979, after the death of his former office partner Dirk Stelljes, he has been the sole owner of the office “Gerber Architekten” based in Dortmund. In addition, he worked as a professor several times, for example at the University of Essen, at the University of Wuppertal and at the University of Dortmund and also as a guest professor at universities in China. Since 2008 he has expanded the office with locations in Hamburg, Berlin, Riyadh and Shanghai. In 2018 he was appointed to the Federal Association for small and medium-sized businesses in the Economic Senate. www.gerberarchitekten.de

AnA Düsseldorf 02 – Architects, not Architecture returned to Dusseldorf in 2017 after an wonderful first event the year before. We welcomed three well-known architects from the region of North Rhine-Westphalia to the stage of the Tanzhaus NRW in Düsseldorf: Eckhard Gerber, Anne-Julchen Bernhardt and Dörte Gatermann.

Virtual Feedback Cards for the Speaker

Dear viewer,
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.

Here, we will collect the messages and forward them via e.mail to our speaker:
