Internationale Bauausstellung: Berlin and Belfast

23 April 2013

7:45 PM - 8:45 PM

Venue:

RIBA, 66 Portland Place London

Description:

Venice Takeaway
International Exchange #5

The IBA in West Berlin was a far-sighted urban renewal project completed in 1987. Started in 1979, it was renowned for its architectural quality and innovative housing types.

With significant works by a roll call of soon-to-be-famous architects that included Zaha Hadid, Peter Eisenman, Herman Hertzberger, Alvaro Siza and Rem Koolhaas, it attracted global attention.

What can we learn from the example of Berlin and could an international building exhibition be the best way to deliver better urban design and high-quality architecture in the UK?

Discussion chaired by Vicky Richardson - British Council with:

  • Declan Hill - Forum for Alternative Belfast
  • Jan Kleihues - IBA Expert, Kleihues + Kleihues and 
  • Gerry Millar - Director of Property and Projects, Belfast City Council
