Think Global. Build Social! Anna Heringer

Global conflict, political and ecological migration, overpopulation and explosive formation of slums. Until recently these subjects were not of any central importance – neither at schools of architecture nor in architectural offices. The exhibition at the German Architecture Museum in Frankfurt / Main shows about 20 different positions and concepts that provide a new understanding of the social role of architecture. Anna Heringer propagates buildings with made out of clay, the typical materials and craft techniques. “… If you concentrate on what is available locally, then a unique architectural language is generated.”
