Date & time: 23rd April 2019 at 6.30pm
Venue: Custom Lane, Leith, Edinburgh.
Karl-Heinz Schmitz, architect and professor at the Bauhaus University, shares his views on public architecture as part of the Talks at the Lane series.
The search for the space itself, the precision in the floor plan development and the aesthetic demands on the graphic realisation were the starting point for Schmitz’s career, which began in 1993 as a university teacher in Weimar.
In addition to his work as a teacher, Karl-Heinz designed a series of buildings that testify an intensive examination of urban spaces and the work on existing buildings. In 2005, in collaboration with Hilde Barz-Malfatti, Schmitz completed reconstruction and extension of the Duchess Anna Amalia Library located in the middle of the historic palace and library ensemble. It has naturally become part of the urban tissue, uniting spaces and elements of the old and the new while at the same time developing an exciting fresh autonomy.
As part of the talk, Karl-Heinz will display some of his work alongside the work of his Bauhaus University students within our Exhibition Space.
