ARCHITEKTURWOCHE BASEL 2022
9.–15. Mai 2022
Basel und Region | Basel (CH)
Architektur Dialoge is initiating a new biennial platform for architecture and urban development: Architekturwoche Basel. The first edition will take place from 9-15 May 2022.
The Architekturwoche Basel opens up contemporary architecture to a broader public while at the same time promoting dialogue among experts and protagonists in the field. Artistic director Chrissie Muhr defined the title “Reale Räume” (Real Spaces) for Architekturwoche Basel 2022 to address the built environment and its associated contemporary issues. Looking at specific projects allows participants to experience how globalization, digitalization, migration and climate change affect our living spaces and daily life – here and now, a “reality check”.
For these urgent current questions, the Architekturwoche Basel seeks to be a platform for all who are interested in architecture, sustainable building, circular economy, a hybrid mix of work and living, and the future of urban co-existence.
The premiere edition analyses “Reale Räume” (Real Spaces) through the categories “Positions, Processes and Perspectives” in three formats. In the Forum, various aspects of three current development sites in Basel are assessed. The dialogue will reflect on the planned changes and identify the main protagonists influencing the process of transformation. The second format is the temporary Basel Pavillon developed in a design competition, which demonstrates new processes for climate-friendly construction from (re)used building components. A catalogue compiles the sourced components from the region. The third format is the award presentation promoting a new perspective and visionary spatial contributions for and in Basel.
The Architekturwoche Basel programme is complemented with collateral events organized by partners. Local institutions, organizations and companies contribute to the Architekturwoche with lectures, guided tours, workshops, exhibitions, film screenings, concerts and performances. These include the existing annual Open House Basel event, which will be held during the concluding weekend. For the Open Office event, numerous architecture, engineering and planning offices
in the city and surrounding region open their doors to the public on two afternoons during the week, providing insights into the design and production of architecture.
