And also this year, one of our projects will open its doors for you…
On 17.06.2023, you can take part in the guided tour of the BaseCamp in Dortmund from 10:00-12:00!
In keeping with the nationwide motto “Planning, Building, Living – Architecture Transforms”, the design idea of the BaseCamp deals with the reactivation and transformation of inner-city centres.
Built on the site of the old Karstadt department stores’, the new building in a prime inner-city location combines short-, medium- and long-term forms of housing with public catering and local amenities. A total of 450 student apartments and hotel rooms are arranged around three inner courtyards.
On Saturday morning, Managing Director Benjamin Sieber and General Manager Yascha Schilling will give you exclusive insights into the rooms and the common areas.
Meeting place Kampstraße 1, 44137 Dortmund
Date Saturday, 17.06.23, start 10:00 (duration 2 hours)
No registration is required.
Building site tour in the context of the Hamburger Architektursommer
Next Monday there will be a guided tour of the building site with protagonists of Hamburg housing construction. Joachim Bode from Eisenbahnbauverein Harburg, architect Prof. Eckhard Gerber and Chief Building Director Franz-Josef Höing will present a current housing project at Bremer Straße 136. There, 145 residential units are being built, and a building association for senior citizens and a housing project for people with learning difficulties are also involved. Monument protection, demolition and new construction, publicly subsidised housing and integration of housing projects – a Hamburg project with many facets.
The event will take place as part of the Hamburg Summer of Architecture. Registration at email@example.com is desirable.

Since last weekend, 18.05.23 the doors of our exhibition are officially open to visitors. While the Architecture Biennale acts as a “laboratory of the future”, our exhibition is dedicated to the symbiotic unity of architecture and landscape. At Palazzo Bembo, 10 national and international projects will be on display, illustrating our basic idea of a conceptual unity of architecture and landscape through visuals and models. The range of examples, from cultural and leisure buildings to administrative and high-rise buildings to universities and research buildings, illustrates the elemental importance of this conceptual approach in the work of Gerber Architekten.
The exhibition will be on view at Palazzo Bembo in Venice during the Biennale’s run through November 26, 2023.

There are companies for which people immediately associate images. In the case of Gerber Architekten from Dortmund, these are not just images, but buildings that can be experienced and walked through. The “architecture” of the company, founded in 1966, which has been based in Dortmund since 1979, has also been carefully designed. Professor Eckhard Gerber succeeded early on in bringing on board younger colleagues who were both ambitious and talented. With Benjamin Sieber and Jens Bentfeld on the one hand, and Thomas Lücking and Marius Ryrko on the other, he has two pairs of managing directors who jointly lead the fortunes of the company, which consists of two GmbHs. Gerber Architekten GmbH, led by Benjamin Sieber and Jens Bentfeld, is mainly active in the German-speaking region from its headquarters in Dortmund and offices in Hamburg and Münster. In April, a new office location will also be opened in Düsseldorf. Jens Haake, Michael Halbeisen, Barbara Breitenbach, Ralf Schneider, and Brigitte Tamasy strengthen the management team as authorized signatories.
The settlement of research institutions and companies is planned on a 10.6-hectare site north of Essen’s city centre. Our urban design with its mix of uses including research, teaching, laboratories and offices has now been awarded the contract in the VgV procedure. A green joint runs through the centre of the site and creates a continuous area for people to spend time in a north-south direction. Resulting from the connection of the Segerothpark, which consists of two parts, the green corridor runs into the urban space and at the same time serves to provide access to the various buildings. At a prominent urban location at the intersection of Grillostrasse and Segerothstrasse, a landmark up to twenty storeys high is planned that will be visible from afar. The grouping of the other planned new buildings ensures air exchange in the central green space and adjacent neighbourhood.
Plan: Gerber Architekten
The team of Gerber Architekten would like to wish you and your family a very happy and peaceful Eid-ul-Fitr. We wish you all health, happiness and prosperity!
Investment in the future viability of the skilled crafts sector
The ceremonial laying of the foundation stone for the Chamber of Skilled Crafts’ training centre took place in Saarbrücken – another important step on the way to a new training location in the Saarland capital. In future, the new building will be used for training and further education in various trades. Modern workshops and training rooms form a functional educational campus for future-oriented training. The progress of the construction work can be followed via a livecam.
