7th International Symposium on Architectural Outreach

The 7th International Symposium for Architectural Mediation was held at the Bauhaus University Weimar from 24th-26th March 2023.

In cooperation with the Federal Foundation for Building Culture, the German National Committee for the Protection of Monuments and the Thuringian Chamber of Architects, more than 180 participants were offered the opportunity to discuss current issues of sustainable building, such as responsible participation in conversion processes, and to develop concrete ideas for joint networking, the visualisation of relevant projects and the strengthening of building culture education.

Together with representatives from schools and extracurricular education, designers and artists discussed the significance of the building heritage against the background of current discourses on sustainability and climate justice, but also the critical questioning, reinterpretation and appropriation of power-theoretical and socio-critical discourses as well as local challenges, taking into account site-specific historical, political and social inscriptions.

The joint search for forward-looking solutions and the commitment to the relevance of education in building culture for raising awareness and enabling participation in the shaping of our living environment determined the result-oriented work processes and discourse formats, also within the framework of the Baukulturdialog of the Bundesstiftung Baukultur as well as the evening expert talks of the DNK, the UIA and other actors from art, (building) culture and education.
