Grüntuch-Ernst Architects Ausstellung Rhein-Main Region leben
Frankfurt, 06-10/2018 Info

EXHIBITION: June 9 – October 14, 2018, 1st floor
EXHIBITION OPENING: Fri, June 8, 2018, 7 p.m.

DAM Deutsches Architekturmuseum
Schaumainkai 43, 60596 Frankfurt am Main, Germany,

OPEN: Tue, Thu-Sun 11.00 — 18.00 \ Wed 11.00 — 20.00

Mobility and residential living are the main challenges facing the Frankfurt Rhine-Main metropolitan region. The prices on the housing market are rising faster than building land becomes available. The transport infrastructure is already stretched to its limits. LIVING THE REGION – RHINE-MAIN interrelates mobility and residential living – after all, the region lives of its localities being easy to reach, and the wide range of housing available. It is defined by the way places are linked with one another. The region is highly dynamic and differs fundamentally from the ideal of an idyllic landscape.
The exhibition creates future images of a region which accepts the challenges facing it and seizes the opportunities involved – which relies on new technologies, pursues an integrated development approach, and sees exemplary projects in Germany and abroad as role models. The scenarios presented showcase possible perspectives and whet our appetite for shaping this future! This is the only way to pave the way to a future in which people live the region.

Curators of the exhibition are Christian Holl, Felix Nowak und Kai Vöckler.

DAM PREIS 2018 – The 25 best buildings in/from Germany

January 27 – May 06, 2018

Fri, January 26, 2016, 7 pm

DAM Deutsches Architekturmuseum
Schaumainkai 43, 60596 Frankfurt am Main, Germany,

Saturdays and Sundays, 4 p.m.

The exhibition accompanying the DAM Preis 2018 showcases exceptional examples of current construction activity in Germany and noteworthy projects carried out by German architectural studios in other countries, too. For the show, a jury has selected 23 building projects completed in Germany and two constructed abroad from a longlist of 100 structures. New builds, refurbishments, and conversions represent examples of the entire spectrum of present-day construction assignments: they include residential buildings, concert halls and other communal structures, a supermarket and a co-working space just as much as a sports hall and a university building.

Partner: Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) and JUNG

Grüntuch-Ernst Architects Ausstellung
Frankfurt, 09/2017-03/2018 Info

FRAU ARCHITEKT – Over 100 years of Women in Architecture

September 30, 2017 – March 8, 2018, 1st floor
OPENING: September 29, 2017, 7 p.m.

DAM Deutsches Architekturmuseum
Schaumainkai 43, 60596 Frankfurt am Main, Germany,

On Satourdays and Sundays, 3 p.m.

It remains to be seen whether the future really is feminine. Indeed, although far more than half of all students in architecture faculties are now women, it is certainly not the case that they all really get a foothold in the profession and only very few manage to make the leap into the top ranks — there architecture is still a man’s world.
FRAU ARCHITEKT elucidates the topic in 22 portraits, project examples and very personal stories of women in Germany who have significantly influenced architecture or are currently shaping it. The exhibition begins with Emilie Winkelmann, who founded the first architecture studio in Germany in 1907, and ends with post-Reunification architecture in Berlin and the new Federal states. Some of the women architects are barely known or indeed entirely unknown even among professionals, let alone the wider public. The exhibition, together with a comprehensive supporting program, aims to shine a light on women in architecture, to bring them out of anonymity and men’s shadow and to give as many of them as possible a face and a voice.

Funded by the German Federal Cultural Foundation.

Grüntuch-Ernst Architects architectdocuments 2017
Kassel, 06-09/2017 Info


June 11 – September 17, 2017
daily from 10:00 to 20:00
Opening: June 10, 2017 at 6:00 pm at KAZimKUBA

Kassel Architecture Centre at the Kulturbahnhof
Rainer-Dierichs-Platz 1, 34117 Kassel,

In March 1998, the BDA Group Kassel founded an architectural centre in the Kulturbahnhof Kassel: the “KAZimKUBA”, which is run on a voluntary basis as a non-profit association. KAZimKUBA’ offers a public forum for dealing with topics of architecture and planning – building culture – and contributes to raising public awareness of the built environment and demanding quality.

In 2017, the 14th documenta exhibition will take place in Kassel for 100 days from 10 June to 17 September 2017, with the special feature that this time it will have a pre- and parallel run from 8 April to 16 July in Athens. The documenta is considered the most important exhibition of contemporary art, attracting an international audience every 5 years. Already at Documenta11 in 2002, documenta 12 in 2007 and doCUMENTA (13) in 2012, the KAZimKUBA was presented with the exhibition’architectdocuments’; results can be viewed on the website.

The ‘KAZimKUBA’ will be back again in 2017. At architectdocuments 4, internationally renowned architects will be presenting their reflections on EUROPA in connection with architecture and urban development for 100 days, making reference to the documenta 14 motto’Learning from Athens’: A surprising interplay of different exhibits, playful, cheerful, serious and less serious, ironic, profound.

Opening of the exhibition with a short welcome:
Barbara Ettinger-Brinckmann – Chairwoman of KAZimKUBA e.V.
Gerhard Greiner – Chairman BDA Group Kassel and Deputy Chairman BDA Hessen

Grüntuch-Ernst Architects Ausstellung SWARM STUDY / IX, Umbau Hauptbahnhof Chemnitz
Berlin, 06-09/2016 Info


Transformation Hauptbahnhof Chemnitz
Grüntuch Ernst Architects
Random International
Jan Bitter Fotografie

Summer break: 28. July to 20. August

4 June to 17 September 2016
Thursday to Saturday from 12 to 6 pm

Grüntuch Ernst Lab
Former Jewish Girls’ School
Auguststr. 11-13, 10117 Berlin

With the realisation of the integrated facade light installation Swarm Study / IX, the transformation of Chemnitz station is complete. The artwork will open at Hauptbahnhof Chemnitz in September 2016. 

UK-based artist collective Random International have created an artwork that inhabits the entire facade of Chemnitz station. The artists’ largest work to date, Swarm Study / IX translates the acrobatic efficiency of flocking birds into light.

Since 2010, Random International’s ongoing Swarm Studies have been exploring the intelligence in motion of self-organising systems through increasingly dematerialised, sensory environments. Evolving from this, Swarm Study / IX invites an experience of architecture as something animate and integrated with surrounding natural phenomena and human activity.

This exhibition presents the first documentary photography of Swarm Study / IX and Grüntuch Ernst Architects’ transformation of Chemnitz main station by German architectural photographer Jan Bitter, alongside an immersive, large-scale video projection of the artwork in situ. The history of Random International’s Swarm Studies is surveyed through the documentation of earlier, three-dimensional works in the series ranging from small-scale editions to large-scale public commissions.

Random International is a collaborative studio for experimental practice within contemporary art. Founded in 2005 by Hannes Koch (born 1975, Germany) and Florian Ortkrass (born 1975, Germany), the studio now includes a larger team in London and Berlin. Questioning aspects of identity and autonomy in the post-digital age, Random International’s work invites active participation.
