Soho House Berlin, 9 April 2015, 7.30pm – 9.30pm, Excerpt from the announcement: "For our fifth conversation on curating architecture, we invite the new director at Bauhaus Dessau, Claudia Perren, and the founder of Architektur Galerie Berlin, Ulrich Müller. How does a curator go about translating a physical building into a set of representations and referential experiences? Curators often focus on the architect’s ideas and make an argument through their work. However, in the last few years, the process of curating architecture has become the subject of critical interest. In this conversation, moderated by Juergen Mayer H, we put two influential curators’ agendas under the spotlight."  01.04.2015

NAP GAP @ Istanbul Design Biennial

The 2nd Istanbul Design Biennial "The Future Is Not What It Used To Be" organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) and curated by Zoë Ryan opens to the public on 1 November 2014. Throughout the city and in the biennial hub, Galata Greek Primary School, the biennial features 53 projects from designers all over the world that ask: “What is the future now?” Nap Gap - Project by J. MAYER H. places “pink noise” (a noise-cancelling sound frequency often misnamed “white noise”) in public spaces to encourage sleeping where and when we like. As the boundary between work time and social time becomes increasingly elastic, why not also blur the boundaries of waking time and sleeping time? Harnessing the power of pink noise. J. MAYER H. proposes new zones for taking a break. Istanbul, Galata Greek Primary School, tasarimbienali.iksv.org    30.10.2014
