Why Architecture?

DAZ 2012 / 2013


DAZ is a think-tank, a place for exchange, transmission and debate. In workshops, exhibitions, talks, film nights and book presentations, architects, city planners, artists, citizens, users and critics come together to discuss current issues in architecture, spatial production and urban life.
In 2012, Curator Matthias Böttger asks: Why architecture? What can it do? Does it take itself too seriously? One thing is certain: at the DAZ, architecture matters! Here, we consider futures, visions and utopias to suggest expedient courses of action for the now. Architecture is not about definitive answers but remains open to questions – which you are warmly invited to share!
The DAZ is an Initiative of the Association of German Architects, BDA. As an independent forum, the DAZ is responsible for the content and financing of its own program.
