Behnisch Architekten Magazin 02 - b/02 - 25 YEARS BEHNISCH ARCHITEKTEN

With the second issue of the Behnisch Architekten Magazine we present all the projects that have been realized since 1989 together for the first time, in the chronological order of their completion. We have supplemented our perspective with external voices, from people who have accompanied us for part of our journey. Finally our four partners, Stefan Behnisch, Robert Hösle, Robert Matthew Noblett and Stefan Rappold, gave their own personal insight into what brought them to Behnisch Architekten.

Behnisch Architekten Magazin 01 - b/01 - WOHNVIELFALT / DIVERSITY OF LIVING

A central focus of this first issue is the investigation of very different forms of living. This includes a look at luxury living in Hamburg’s harbor, middle-class housing in Karlsruhe, and public, social housing in Ingolstadt, as well as private residences in and around the park in Kolbermoor. Roland Pawlitschko, an architectural journalist from Munich, has compiled many thoughts on these very different forms of housing for us and shares the results of a recent discussion he conducted with the partners. This Magazine is a summary, an overview, of what has motivated us during the past two years; what we have achieved, accomplished, and completed.

Hochschule Ulm - Sanierung Campus Prittwitzstraße 1999-2012

The original design for the “Fachhochschule für Technik” (Ulm Engineering School) in Ulm was completed in 1960-63 by Behnisch & Partner. The project, awarded to the firm based on the 1958 first prize competition entry, was highly innovative in its use of modern prefabricated concrete systems. In 2004, after 41 years of continuous occupancy, section E, B, as well as the Auditorium of the campus buildings were completely renovated by Behnisch Architekten to meet the University’s changing needs and to generally bring the buildings’ systems up-to-date and in-line with current technology.

Ecology.Design.Synergy - Behnisch Architekten + Transsolar CimateEngineering

Given the realization that supplies of available raw materials are finite, it is becoming increasingly evident that only innovative solutions - and this is equally true for architecture and urban planning - can achieve urgently needed reductions in energy and resource. This joint exhibition by Behnisch Architekten and Transsolar ClimateEngineering, together with its accompanying catalogue, features pioneering developements in these areas. Designed with a broad international public in mind, it will hopefully be through-provoking while raising awareness of these pressing issues. The exhibition is a cooperation with the ifa -Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen relations and the forum of architecture Aedes. The curator Frank Ockert illustrates that a sensitive and responsible approach to the built environment is not only a matter for experts, but for each individual person.

Behnisch, Behnisch & Partner - Günter Behnisch, Stefan Behnisch, Günther Schaller

Ecology is more than saving energy. Man takes a lot from nature, and should treat it with due respect. In architectural terms this can mean that buildings are set in landscape in such a manner that adverse visual impacts are avoided as far as possible. Huge buildungs can be broken down into a variety small units, located in depressions, or have planted roofs which intermingle with the surroundings. The examples presented in this booklet illustrate how our approach to ecological architecture and our knowledge have evolved over the years, how initial ideas have been developed further and adapted ti specific circumstances.
