European Art School—Rethinking the Mediterranean

Presenting the results of the aac workshop at the Rainvilleterrasse campusThe autumn workshop of the Academy for Architectural Culture (aac) focused on a project that, in the 1930s, shortly before its implementation, failed due to the political conditions: a European Academy at the Côte d‘Azur that was to combine traditional architecture with the Modernist movement and promote international exchange.

NeueHouse Hollywood

Background: NeueHouse Hollywood is the West Coast flagship of the world’s first private work collective. Created for entrepreneurs in creative industries, the concept was introduced in New York in 2013. Housed in L.A.’s landmark CBS Radio Building and Studio, designed by Swiss-born architect William Lescaze, NeueHouse’s second location sustains the creative energy unique to this iconic structure.   The 1938 building has an unmistakable vibrancy: It’s from here that the baritone voice of Orson Welles suffused the nation’s wireless airwaves and Lucille Ball took her first steps toward America’s television screens. Lescaze designed the building to embody the principles of the International Style—quiet and austere—and Rockwell Group’s restor... More

Goldammerweg, Cologne

The Cologne district of Junkersdorf is synonymous with elegant single-family homes built in the Bauhaus style in the 1920s. Since that time, the district has attracted people due to its exclusive feeling of living in a leafy area of the city – and now acts as a „home port“ for many celebrities from TV or elite sports. The area offers potential for new buildings due to the large plots of land. For example, two multi-family houses with 16 exclusive freehold apartments with 85 to 180 m2 of living space have been built on Goldammerweg on a 3,850 m2 plot of land previously occupied by a single family house. Today, two 1,000 m2 buildings blend harmoniously into the surrounding single-family housing. To give the ensembl... More
