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.

Construction of the new chemistry institutes at Frankfurt’s Goethe University has begun
The groundbreaking ceremony for the chemical institutes and the new technical centre has taken place on the natural sciences campus of the Goethe University. Numerous guests from politics and science celebrated the ground-breaking ceremony in imperial weather. The earthworks on the site, which is located on the southern edge of the slope, have been underway since October 2022. In the first construction phase, the new practical training building with laboratory space above is being built. The technical centre is located underground and serves to supply the entire campus. “The new chemistry building is a long-planned important milestone for the future viability of research, teaching and knowledge transfer at our natural sciences campus. Modern infrastructures are the basic prerequisite for excellent basic research as the basis for innovations at the location, for worldwide networking to strengthen the internationality of the region and for modern teaching to train future specialists,” said University President Professor Dr. Enrico Schleiff, explaining the new building.
