germany's architecture
a voyage in diverse scales

architecture deals with creative design of urban space. architectural concepts, once they are realized, become a part of a city itself. on a smaller scale the same is true for PLATOON KUNSTHALLE, where the concept of shipping containers as icons for a globalized culture becomes an inherent part of the building. but there are fundamental local differences in which role architecture plays for the (trans-)formation of a city, like construction regulations or the meaning of public space.
as part of the seoul design olympiad 2009, this exhibtion, organized by the german embassy in seoul and NAX – network for architecture exchange of the federal chamber of german architects – presents a selection of german architects and their works. the exhibition is divided into three parts and presents a crosssection through the diverse scales of contemporary architecture.


part A – NAX paten (NAX support group) presents a selection of
fine architectural firms from germany. these german architects
have already aquired an international reputation.


part B – “da! architecture in and from berlin”
the chamber of berlin architects presents a broad range of
selected architecture. 63 current projects are arranged in the
categories residential buildings, buildings for offices and trade,
public buildings and landscaping.


part C – “master builders – german architects worldwide”
by deutsche welle tv. suburban towns in china, soccer stadiums
in south africa, high-rises in dubai: to be a top architect you
have to think big! this interview series of dw-tv introduces five
young architect teams enjoying their first experiences abroad
and accompanies them to their construction sites around the
world to get an insider’s view of the new buildings.
