The MIAD P2 Integrated Project was kicked off on April 12th. The task is the design of an extension building to Kunsthalle Bielefeld. This semester, there will be two groups led by Prof. Jochimsen and Dipl.-Ing. Tillmann Wagner from Berlin respectively. For information about Tillmann Wagner see www.tillmannwagner.de.
In order to familiarize ourselves with the site and the Philip Johnson building as well as to talk to the director of Kunsthalle Bielefeld, Dr. Friedrich Meschede, an excursion to Bielefeld was done on Wednesday April 19. Dr. Meschede gave us a comprehensive tour of his museum and shared his insights on buildings for exhibiting art from a curator’s point of view.
In the Afternoon, we continued on to Hannover where we visited the newly finished extension to Sprengel Museum bei Meili & Peter Architects from Zurich. We were also lucky that the fabulous video installation „Manifesto“ bei Julian Roseveldt was still being shown.
