Prof. Eckhard Gerber has now been active for 50 years with his practice Gerber Architects and has established a reputation as one of Germany’s most important architects. He is also well respected internationally—the practice is successfully working in China as well as the Arabic countries. Gerber was born in Oberhain, Thuringia, and will celebrate his 80th birthday on 13 October 2018. Prompted by this occasion, the newly opened Baukunstarchiv NRW in Dortmund will host the “Konzept + Atmosphäre” exhibition from 23 November 2018 to 3 February 2019. Using ten completed projects and a range of different media, the exhibition brings to life different architectural atmospheres. Included are also six projects that are currently being worked on, promising to give an insight into the concept phase and the design process. Furthermore, the architect talks about his profession in specially produced film interviews. The exhibition will be accompanied by public round-table discussions between Prof. Eckhard Gerber and a guest, the first such discussion taking place on 28 November 2018 between Prof. Gerber and Prof. Volkwin Marg (gmp Architects). Further dates will be publicized nearer the time.
