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. We strongly believe that we all need positive input in this extraordinary situation.
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. Each day, we will add a new video alternating daily between talks in German and English. Stay tuned!
You can also send us a short mail if you want to receive a weekly notification.
