Meetings shape us. That's why we are always in contact with other people who have an affinity for architecture and who give us insights into their multifaceted creative world. Whether architectural photographers or artists – we value the exchange, because it provides a new drive for our own creativity.
The Leipzig architect Katharina Benjamin studied at the Bauhaus University Weimar and has been working at the Chair of Design and Construction I at TU Dresden since 2019. In 2017, together with Alen Marie Linnemann, she launched the digital architecture platform Kontextur, on which she has since presented diverse and inspiring added value on architecture - including numerous interviews with exciting personalities from the industry as well as her own podcast.
Together with the innovative platform "baunetz CAMPUS", we would like to bring the world of architecture closer to students in a versatile way. For this purpose, together with our new cooperation partner, we offer an exclusive and exciting architectural tour of Venice, which takes place as part of our renowned Meetingpoint.
The photographer and architect Nicanor García lives in Barcelona and presents his unique work on Instagram, where he is followed by almost 750,000 people. Now, he is also on the road for BERÜHRUNGSPUNKTE and reports on his social media channels about our Meetingpoint and the Architecture Biennale in Venice.
In May 2023, the Diversity in Architecture DIVIA Award will be presented for the first time! The award ceremony will take place both in Berlin and at our renowned BERÜHRUNGSPUNKTE Meetingpoint in Venice. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the award winner on 19 May.
Morgane Renou and Simon Schnepp, two photographers who live in Berlin and Paris and work from there all over the world. They specialise in architecture, editorial and interior series. For BERÜHRUNGSPUNKTE, the duo set out for a day.
The BERÜHRUNGSPUNKTE editorial team visits photojournalist Andreas Teichmann on one day of his 50days tour through Germany and accompanies him for a few kilometres. In 2017, he already crossed Germany on foot - but from Aachen to Zittau, from west to east. The second time he walked from south to north in 50 days - from Oberstdorf to Sylt. On day 33, near Göttingen, the BERÜHRUNGSPUNKTE editorial team walked along for a day.
The conceptual artist Ottmar Hörl has repeatedly made a name for himself with large-scale installations and spectacular actions in public space. In doing so, he makes use of the idea of the serial like no other. For BERÜHRUNGSPUNKTE, he developed a mini-architect for the 2014 Architecture Biennale - #derArchitekt. Distributed in the Meetingpoint in Venice, it is still in architectural offices today.
