A Manifesto on Mediatecture - Ten thoughts on the evolving relationship between people, media, and the built environment
This manifesto identifies the essential trends and their solutions for a successful future of our media environments. Design and knowledge come together to redefine architecture - Through decades of experience through international projects around the globe, founding partners Thomas Willemeit, Wolfram Putz and Lars Krückeberg (GRAFT) and Prof. Nikolaus Hafermaas (GRAFT BRANDLAB) sketch the outlines of this world in all its dimensions.
The Johanna and Eduard Arnhold Square - A role model for today
To publicly commemorate the patronage of donor couple Johanna and Eduard Arnhold and the civic engagement of the Jewish bourgeoisie in Berlin, the project of a new Johanna and Eduard Arnhold Platz in the center of Berlin, initiated by Peter von Becker, was presented for the first time on Thursday, June 17: with the first drafts and statements for an artistic-urbanistic design by GRAFT founding partner Lars Krückeberg and the artists* Tatjana Doll, Julian Rosefeldt, Karin Sander. Lars Krückeberg was 2018/2019 scholarship holder in the Villa Massimo in Rome, donated by the Arnhold couple to the German State, where he realized the project Relative Cosmos - Fragmented Oikos.
For many years GRAFT has been working intensively and also in cooperation with medical professionals and scientists on the topic of "Healing Architecture" and the question of how a carefully planned environment can contribute to health as well as accelerate recovery processes. We would like to present you some examples of projects planned and already realized by GRAFT, which are not only architecturally convincing, but also link the topics of building and health in a forward-looking way.
