Event description

Description

As part of the evening program open to the public at the International Summer School Bernau, we will host Dr.Raquel Franklin from Anahuac University in Mexico. In her lecture, she will examine the architect and second director of the Bauhaus Dessau - Hannes Meyer and his unbuilt projects.

Hannes Meyer contributed significantly to the development of modern architecture, but only a few of his projects reached completion. His unbuilt projects, especially those submitted in competitions were important fields for experimentation. They reveal his interests and conceptual inquiries, his ideological development and the formal response to it through his architecture, and the compromises he had to reach in order to accommodate the demands of his time and circumstances. Dr. Franklin will introduce us to his early projects in Germany, to the built projects which we can still see standing today and to those partly executed projects and unbuilt projects in the Soviet Union and Mexico. The lecture will explore the influences, the political content, symbolism and formal strategies of Mayer.


++ Dr. Raquel Franklin is the Coordinator of the Architectural Research Center at the Anahuac University Mexico, where she also teaches courses on the History of Twentieth Century Architecture.
