The Department of Architecture is pleased to host a lecture by Austrian architect Dietmar Eberle, which will be held on Thursday, January 12th, in 6PM at the department, 1st Bezalel st. Jerusalem. The lecture cumulates a week long workshop with students at the department. Further details are found below.
Baumschlager Eberle stands for an architecture matched at first to the performance of real needs. This means practically to design buildings which optimise living environments as they generate identities for locations. Beyond fulfilling these demands it is the aim of Baumschlager Eberle to define architecture as a part of art: An architecture which institutes space for the cultural positioning of the medium and personal visions by the abstraction of practical values. The relevance of this special architecture outcomes from critical reflections concerning existing human coherences, the social acceptance and from framing answers for the dimension of time. To find solutions for the requirements of the presence and future is the primary idea in the work of Baumschlager Eberle.
Eberle, born in 1952, studied at Vienna University of Technology in Austria. Co-founder of the Baukünstler design movement in Vorarlberg, Austria, in 1979. Co-operation and joint practice with Carlo Baumschlager since 1985. Teaching posts in Hanover, Vienna, Linz, Zurich, New York and Darmstadt since 1983. Professor of Architecture at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland, and head of its Centre for Cultural Studies in Architecture since 1999. Dean of the Faculty of Architecture from 2003 to 2005.
The lecture was enabled due to the support of the Austrian Cultural Forum in Tel Aviv.
