Collective architecture brings the public realm into the domestic sphere – and understands residential spaces as a public good. How do private and public intersect here in a new way? These are some of the issues to be discussed by Pier Vittorio Aureli, the renowned architect, Yale School of Architecture professor and co-founder of the urban planning office and think tank Dogma, who will be joined by Andreas Ruby, curator of the exhibition »Together!«. The talk is moderated by Anh-Linh Ngo, publisher of the German magazine for urban planning, architecture and design ARCH+. The event is part of the series ARCH+ features initiated by Siedle. Free admission

What is the significance of colour in architecture? For Le Corbusier, arguably the most important figure in modern architecture, this was a lifelong preoccupation, especially in connection with his Unité d’Habitation. This groundbreaking concept for collective living was implemented in multiple cities. In this talk, Pascal Mory, architect and contributor to a reproduction of the Unité d’Habitation, for the Musée des Monuments in Paris, addresses Le Corbusier’s ideas for communal dwelling and the determinative, communitybuilding role of colour, which many architects have continued to employ to this day. Free admission
In this workshop, visitors can construct a full-size reproduction of Gerrit Rietveld's most famous chair design – the Red-Blue Chair. 115.00 € per person, registration at info(at)design-museum.de

Following the tour we will create our own futuristic cities and homes. For children aged 6 to 12, € 7,00 per child, registration: email@example.com

In the early 1980s, Italian designer and architect Aldo Cibic became a partner in Ettore Sottsass’s design studio and was a founding member of the Memphis group. In his talk, Cibic discusses his long collaboration with Sottsass and provides insight into the genesis and development of Memphis, one of the most influential design collectives of the twentieth century. Free admission
This year he would have celebrated his 100th birthday: the Italian designer Ettore Sottsass (1917–2007) was one of the most influential yet unconventional personalities in 20th-century design. He gained renown with products such as the legendary »Valentine« typewriter (1969) for Olivetti, and as head of the creative collective Memphis, whose work revolutionized the realm of design in the 1980s. This exhibition highlights the multifaceted talents and activities of a great designer who did not view form and function as constraints, but rather as an opportunity to pose existential questions and explore the fundamental nature of human existence. Free admission
Spanish architect Anna Puigjaner is convinced that the current housing crisis can be addressed using historic examples of collective housing, which employ strategies of shared amenities such as dining rooms, lounges and service areas. Her conviction has been turned into reality both in the realization of a housing block in her native city of Barcelona in 2016, as well as in her proposal »Kitchenless City: Architectural Systems for Social Welfare«, which won her the coveted Wheelwright Prize of the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Currently, Puigjaner is researching examples of collective living in Brazil, Sweden, Russia and Korea to derive lessons and possible solutions for future domestic architecture. In her talk, she will share these findings. Free admission
