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 #62: Jan Störmer
– This talk was held in German.

About Jan Störmer

Jan Störmer was born in 1942 in Berlin. After completing his studies in Bremen, Hamburg, Delft, and London, he founded the Hamburg Design GmbH für Architektur, Industrie und Graphik Design in 1970.

This was followed by the foundation of the architects’ group me di um, Hamburg, together with three partners. When merging with Will Alsop in 1990, the office Alsop & Störmer Architects was established. Holger Jaedicke and Martin Murphy became partners of the office in 2002 respectively 2004 and became Störmer Murphy and Partners in 2009.

The focus of their activities is the planning of hotels and office buildings, residential developments and museums. Their project portfolio ranges from the refurbishment of heritage-listed buildings to new building designs, from interior fitouts to town planning, from feasibility studies to general contractor activities.

AnA Hamburg 02 – This was our first recorded event. The event was held on February 4th, 2016 and we welcomed three well-known architects from Hamburg to the stage of the Miralles Concert: Julia Erdmann, Volkwin Marg and Jan Störmer.

This talk is presented with the support of Petersen Tegl. 
For Jan Störmer, innovative architecture has less to do with the invention of something new than the reduction to the essentials.

Kannikegården is on the square in Ribe, opposite the cathedral. It houses facilities for the parish council and cathedral staff, as well as exhibition space and a lecture theatre. Tiny adjustments to the oxygen supply in the ovens resulted in just the right mix of rustic red hues to blend the new building in with its surroundings. The shells bear all the blemishes and hallmarks of the production processes, just like the bricks used by the monks centuries before. The tradition of hand- made, coal- red brick continues here in the big, handmade shells. Check out Petersen Tegl’s different products: petersen-tegl.dk.

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:
