7th Forum Architecture - Windows - Facades
The Forum Architecture at the fensterbau/frontale exhibition in Nürnberg offers the architects among the visitors an attractive presentation programme on the morning of the second day that has attracted up to 800 architects to Nürnberg every year for the past years. Speakers like Wilfried Wang, Dominique Perrault, Gerd de Bruyn, Shigeru Ban, Mario Bellini, Francoise-Hélène Jourda, Francois Valentiny, Meinhard v. Gerkan and Zhang Ke from Peking were obtained for these presentations in the previous years. The 7th Forum Architecture will examine the topic of ARCHITECTURE and associated questions in three papers presented by outstanding artists/architects.
The relationships between the terms "architecture" and "art" are exceptionally varied and definitely not simple. They are also dependent on place and time/epoch. A generally clear-cut definition of this relationship does not exist. Alone the definitions of the two terms themselves are debatable. Nevertheless, this relationship does exist. This is constantly shown by architects and artists, in that artists indulge in architecture and architects in art - at best architecture.
The following presentations are on the programme at the international trade fair fensterbau/frontale 2014 in Tokio hall of NCC Ost at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 10:00 to 13:30 on Thursday, 27 March:
