The first podcast of the JUNG Architecture Talks series in spring 2020 was followed by 145 fascinating conversations with national and international architectural firms – about the profession and vocation, strategies and the will to change the world.
Even though architecture usually lives through the power of images, over 5,000 minutes of conversation prove how words can inspire architecture.
At Cosentino Group, we meet the demands of architects and designers who seek inspiration and information for their projects. We invite you to win a Trip to the Cosentino Headquarter. Here we seek to inspire and offer professionals the chance to explore and discover all the opportunities Cosentino products can offer for the most innovative projects.
The event venue
Silent Green Kulturquartier is an event venue and independent project that has found a unique home in Berlin in the historic premises of the former crematorium in Wedding. The heart of silent green is the Kuppelhalle, with its 17 meter tall dome. The architectural layout, pyramid-shaped mansard roof, and the historical terrazzo floor of the hall make it a distinctive venue that instantly turns every event into an extraordinary experience.
