The very first "Darmstadt Summer of Architecture", being held from May to October 2008, is presenting a variety of special events on the subject of architectural culture. These events are being used to highlight, discuss, communicate and scrutinise basic as well as current aspects of architecture, spatial design and urban development.
The opening party of the "Darmstadt Summer of Architecture" was held on May 13th at Darmstadt´s concert venue "Centralstation" in the heart of the city. In our first guest lecture, internationally active Dutch architect Wiel Arets presented his exciting projects and visions.
The objective of the Summer of Architecture is to promote amongst the general public the variety and the value of qualitative architecture in our environment.
The significance of architecture and environmental awareness as well as a number of other issues will be communicated to children and youths within the framework of several special projects.
A colourful variety of events, including exhibitions, lectures, workshops, readings, podium discussions, films, conferences, excursions, city walks, special performances and culinary contributions will serve to highlight both basic and current aspects of architecture, spatial design and urban development.
