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 #60: Laura Fogarasi-Ludloff
About Laura Fogarasi-Ludloff
Laura Fogarasi-Ludloff is an Architect born in Zurich in 1967. She studied in Vienna and Dortmund and finished at TU Dortmund in 1994. She worked as a project architect at several renowned offices before she established ludloff + ludloff Architekten with her husband Jens Ludloff in 2007. Their architecture evolves from a focus on the perceiving subject rather than mere formalistic composition. Rooms are perceived as sequential arrangements defined not so much by their geometry as by light and colour, textures and acoustics creating variations in atmosphere. Ludloff Ludloff have realized a number of internationally decorated projects – Sedus Stoll AG’s Research and Development Centre in Dogern, hotel buildings in Amsterdam and Vienna, a canteen and a gymnasium on Tempelhofer Feld, and Haus FL – that form an integral part of the firm’s research practice and add to the public discourse on changed image politics as a tool for building as social practice. www.ludloffludloff.de
AnA Berlin 02 – Our second event in Berlin took place in the Atze Theater, June 15, 2017. We invited three outstanding architects who were not allowed to talk about prices or projects, but about what shaped them and what they have learned from their experiences. Mario Botta, Max Dudler and Laura Fogarasi-Ludloff.
This talk is presented with the support of Petersen Tegl.
Laura Fogarasi-Ludloff’s work is characterized by integrative planning and a conscious use of form and colour. The refurbished Stadthöfe Complex in the heart of Hamburg is clad in bright Cover, which interacts beautifully with the light sandstone façade. The natural materials will last for centuries.
Petersen Cover™, the handmade tile product that was used for the roofs and facades is available in several shades with a range of looks, depending on the type of clay and firing used. Stadthöfe exudes self-assurance, historical grandeur and tranquillity. Like the sandstone façades, the bricks harmonise beautifully with the light-coloured Cover. While it was a strong idea on the conceptual level, the unqualified success of the project is largely due to consummate urban planning and exceptionally beautiful architecture.
