The DAZ is an initiative of the Association of German Architects BDA and it is a laboratory for ideas , a place of exchange and debate. The Artistic Director Matthias Böttger asks “Who makes the city? What is architecture? How can social objectives and formal synthesis, robust responsibility and fragile creativity be combined? How can speculative practice change architecture?” Architecture´s task is not only to provide solutions, but to name and describe new challenges. Architecture provides no definitive answers, but remains open for questions – you are cordially invited to share and discuss!
In workshops, exhibitions, discussions, Y-Table talks film evenings and book presentations architects, urban planners, artists and interested citizens, discuss current issues in architecture, spacial production and urban society.
The DAZ is supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
