The international lecture series on contemporary architecture continues online. Six architects from various backgrounds are invited to share their thoughts and ideas on current trends in architecture.

Anupama Kundoo was born in Pune, India in 1967. She graduated from Sir JJ College of Architecture, University of Mumbai in 1989, and received her PhD degree from the TU Berlin in 2008. Her research-oriented practice focussing on material research to achieve architecture of low environmental impact while being socio-economically beneficial, was exhibited twice at the Venice Architecture Biennale, with the installation Feel the Ground. Wall House 1:1 in 2012 and Building Knowledge, An Inventory of Strategies in 2016 and now exhibited as a solo show ‘Taking Time’ at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark till 31 January 2021.

Anupama Kundoo’s practice started in 1990 in Auroville where she worked closely with Roger Anger on Auroville’s planning, particularly the urban design of Auroville’s City Center, Administration Zone and Habitat Area till his last days. She taught Urban Management at TU Berlin and strengthened her expertise in rapid urbanization and climate change related development issues, about which she has written extensively. She is the author of the bilingual book Roger Anger: Research on Beauty/Recherche sur la Beauté, Architecture1958 –2008, published in Berlin by Jovis Verlag in 2009. Anupama Kundoo is currently Professor at Potsdam School of Architecture, Germany.

“Anupama Kundoo has in her work a strong sense of haptic qualities, warmth and richness. Her kind of material research is something I would like to see more of in architecture”, says Jenni Reuter, curator of the lecture series.

Open lecture "Us and Them" by Richard Wentworth

Richard Wentworth has played a leading role in New British Sculpture since the end of the 1970s.

Richard Wentworth has played a leading role in New British Sculpture since the end of the 1970s. His work, encircling the notion of objects and their use as part of our day-to-day experiences, has altered the traditional definition of sculpture as well as photography. By transforming and manipulating industrial and/or found objects into works of art, Wentworth subverts their original function and extends our understanding of them by breaking the conventional system of classification.

ABOUT
Cities are known to change and adapt over time. Consequently, if we view the city as a continuous process of transformation, a central question becomes what are the driving forces and structures behind this process? On the one hand there are unplanned or unintentional influences such as natural disasters or epidemics that have brought about change. On the other hand, however, urban change has been propagated through planned and intentional processes by human society. Additionally given that cities evolve over time and often collectively, how does one engage with things beyond the short term and beyond the individual in looking at the future of the city.

With this frame of mind, the third year urban design and research studio is engaging with the current redevelopment of the industrial waterfront in Laksevåg, Bergen. To gain a better understanding of the various structures and agendas engaged in this process, we wish to meet with various actors explicitly and implicitly involved in this transformation e.g. planning authorities, landowners, developers, local activists, politicians, residents and other stakeholders. Further on, students will look to negotiate these various positions and conditions into urban proposals for the area. These proposals are to embody the notion of a generative process, of an incremental, collective and adaptable nature that put forth an idea for the future.

The symposium is organized by the 3rd Year Urban Research and Design Studio in collaboration with Bergen Kommune
