MVRDV - ImPossible Germany: Christiane Bürklein Instagram Live talk with Herbert Wright

ImPossible Germany: Christiane Bürklein Instagram Live talk with Herbert Wright

On Wednesday July 15th, as part of the celebration of the latest issue of "Baumeister Curated", MVRDV editor Christiane Bürklein will talk with one of the authors included in the issue, Herbert Wright, on Instagram Live about the approach to sustainability in German architecture culture.

The editorial concept for this special issue of Baumeister, developed by MVRDV founding partner Winy Maas, turns a mirror on Germany, using the German magazine as a platform to deliver an “outsider’s perspective” on the idiosyncrasies of German architecture. Wright's article, "‘I Can See For Miles and Miles’ (The Who)" gently argues for new sustainable approaches in German architecture, thinking more broadly than the dull corporate style encouraged by institutional sustainability certificates such as LEED and BREEAM. Christiane Bürklein also contributed to the magazine as an editor and with her own article about the culture of building groups (“Baugruppen”) in Germany.

The talk starts at 7pm and can be watched live by following MVRDV or Baumeister on Instagram.
