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 #48: Nicole Kerstin Berganski
– This talk was held in German

About Nicole Kerstin Berganski

Nicole Kerstin Berganski, co-founder of NKBAK, has gained her experience in renowned offices for several years. She worked at SANAA in Tokyo for four years – the studio of Pritzker Prize winners Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa – and was project architect responsible for the Zollverein School in Essen and the Novartis office building in Basel. In 2007 her and Andreas Krawczyk established their own studio NKBAK. Since then, they have realized projects in a wide range of scales, from weekend houses to daycare centers and school buildings. NKBAK’s built projects reveal their distinct sense of space and deep understanding of modern construction techniques. In addition to utilizing classical materials, the architects have discovered and developed the potential of timber construction as a central element in their work. Nicole Kerstin Berganski combines her executive architectural practice with academic teaching, for instance at KIT in Karlsruhe and TU Darmstadt. www.nkbak.de

This talk is presented with the support of Bette. 
In his talk, Nicole Berganski speaks about important people and places that have been influencing the way he creates architecture. With a broad range of colours and dimensions, Bette creates a carefully designed environment which makes it possible for people to experience themselves in entirely new ways.

Eye-catching contrast or effect colours present individual bathroom elements as coloured eye-catchers which shimmer in an exciting way depending on the light incidence. They focus on current bathroom interiors, materials, colours, shapes and finishes. However, colour in the bathroom does not automatically mean brightly coloured. Timeless, discreet shades and pastel colours are in fashion. More than 40 percent of Bette customers now choose coloured floor-level shower surfaces made from glazed titanium steel. Check out their different design versions: Link.


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:
