Celebrating Gottfried Böhm’s 100th Birthday

Celebrating the 100th birthday of architect Gottfried Böhm, RWTH Aachen University would like to announce the online event ‘Ein Tag Böhm / A Day with Böhm’.
RWTH Aachen University’s faculty of architecture celebrates its former professor and Pritzker Laureate with an international architectural historical study day accompanied by an online exhibition.
The international study day, hosted by the Chair of Architectural History, gathers new research and perspectives on the work of Gottfried Böhm. The panel of contributions includes Luigiemanuele Amabile and Alberto Calderoni, Elie Harfouche, Angeli Janhsen, Stefan Knecht, Steffen Kunkel, Jan Pieper, Johannes Sander, Klaus Tragbar and Tina Zürn.
The accompanying exhibition presents selected student work from two analytical design classes held by the Chair for Building Typologies. In their monographic analyses, three artefacts emerged as tools and results alike: a photograph, a model and a drawing, ’working with Böhm’ meant producing.
RWTH Aachen University would like to cordially invite anyone interested in the work of Gottfried Böhm to join the online event, either in viewing the livestream on the website or in participating the all-day video call.
