Lecture by Steffen Schünecke at German Centre of Achitecture
On February 24th the event „BIM in Deutschland. Sachstand, Perspektiven und Gegensätze“ (“BIM in Germany. Current Situation, Prospects and Differences“ took place in Berlin at the German Centre of Achitecture. During the meeting Steffen Schünecke (Gerber Architekten) has held a lecture about the opportunities that are offered by BIM applications in every day practice. Showing the project Olaya Metro Station in Riyadh, Saudi-Arabia he pointed out how the organization of a team and the work flow can be optimized using BIM and how you can use this program to catch up with the ongoing growth in freedom of scope, quality of architecture and delivery times.
For almost fifty years, Gerber Architekten is working in national and international projects. When winning the competition to plan a central metrostation in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 2012, the designer started working with Building Information Modeling (BIM).
On February 17th, the German Bauherrenpreis 2016 was awarded. Amongst nine other projects, the Quarter of Nations in Wilhelmsburg, Hamburg, by Gerber Architekten was given a prize. Building owner is the SAGA Siedlungsaktiengesellschaft Hamburg.
The jurys statement says, the project shows “in an impressive way how subsidized housing, high energy standards and outstanding architecture interact very well with each other.” Furthermore the judges describe the design of the buildings: “The design approach with its subtle brick facade and sculptural roofs create a connection to the existing buildings and emphasize modern living requirements at the same time.”
Lead by Muck Petzet, Architekt BDA, the jury awarded ten projects with a prize and ten more projects with an acknowledgement.
The German Bauherrenpreis is given to projects with “High Quality with Acceptable Costs” since 1986.
On Thursday, Januar 28th 2016, sponsors of the German Scholarship met at the Westfälische Industrieklub in Dortmund. From all 235 students of TU Dortmund, Gerber Architekten supports one architecture and urban planning master student for one year. Eckhard Gerber and the student Kamil Malecki met in person at the meeting.
Gerber Architekten also supports another master student for two semesters. Hannah Matern is studying civil engeneering at Ruhr-Universität-Bochum (RUB).
For the second time in only three months, Gerber Architekten went to Iran with a Delegtaion.
In January 2016, the Delegation of the German health industry, lead by Brigitte Zypries, the parliamentary secretary of the federal minister of economy and energy, visited Iran and was talking to representatives of the Iranian economy and politics. Shortly before this visit, the EU and USA cancelled their sanctions on January 16th („Implementation Day“), since the Iran had stopped their nuclear program.
