Le Corbusier in Oberhessen (Upper Hesse)

Currently published in the Deutsche Bauzeitschrift, July / August edition, the item 'Le Corbusier in Oberhessen'

The facts are known, but hardly anyone knows them - Le Corbusier in Laubach - which tempts alliteration, but actually it's still about Charles Edouard Jeanneret, who was a guest in Upper Hesse. An interview with Paul-Martin Lied was published in the Giessener Allgemeine Zeitung on May 29, 2021 under the title 'Memory of a Genius'

the 'Klipstein Tower' in Laubach, which Jeanneret measured in 1911 for study purposes

Through the Geschwister Klipstein Stiftung (Klipstein siblings foundation), which has already brought together a lot about Jeanneret's stays in Laubach, a reading from 'Yesterday and Today' Editha Klipstein, 1948, Laupheim Castle - chapter 'Memories of Le Corbusier' was held in the course of the hr2 culture day on May 30, 2021. Jeanneret's designs for a studio atrium house in Laubach can also be seen in the clip.

Free architecture bike tour in Frankfurt am Main

A Architecture bike tour by Frankfurt parks, free to download to your smartphone.

Simply green - Greening the city - the current exhibition in DAM - German Architecture Museum is due to Corona reasons currently not accessible. Until it is that time again, the tour is suitable as an inventory of the Frankfurt greenery with as the end point, the building that is to become the first large-scale green residential building in Frankfurt.

Tour and exhibition now complement each other well, coincidentally, because the bike tour was organized by Frankfurt's cycling (leading) architects created at the suggestion of the creators of NXT-a, the nationwide Biking Architects tours have published on their website.

The tour is intended for those interested in architecture, cycling enthusiasts, newcomers to Frankfurt, but also architecture and Frankfurt connoisseurs who would like to try this almost circular tour. It leads largely in the green, around the center of Frankfurt but outside of the Anlagen- and Alleenring. A completion of the circuit from Osthafenpark, Campus Westend, Niddapark, Europagarten, Sommerhoffpark - Retour am Main is planned.

The Niddapark - 'Frankfurt's Green'

Our activities were mentioned on the internet

  • The research on the Hahnwald Holiday Center at Kiedrich was on modern REGIONAL made public
