2015 RhineMain Summer of Architecture in Frankfurt, Offenbach and Wiesbaden 2015 – Visions for the RhineMain Metropolitan Region
Monday, August 11 – Saturday, August 16
Designhaus, Eugen-Bracht-Weg 6, Darmstadt
» a guest event of the Summer of Architecture Rhein-Main e. V.
In early April eight international firms attended an intensive creative workshop at Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM). It spawned architectural and urban design ideas and concepts that identify and adopt the potential the region offers, and from these derive overarching ideas and opportunities for developing the metropolitan region. Eight completely different visions emerged which, having been presented in DAM are now being exhibited in the “Designhaus” in Darmstadt.
Under the heading «A Region in Flux», this is a source of new ideas for getting the region to grow together. The ideas are due to take shape in the RhineMain Summer of Architecture 2015. Installations and interventions in random places, and bridge-building from Wiesbaden to Offenbach have been conceived as impetus for outlying districts previously perceived as brownfields or divides. As such, the RhineMain Summer of Architecture 2015 will see ideas from the concepts that were developed put into practice, and future developments put up for discussion.
Opening times will be announced on site.
