Bewo Estate I Neutra’s first project to be accomplished in Europe after World War II: a dense estate of detached houses near Frankfurt Airport, nowadays partly spoiled by subsequent alterations. Richard Neutra in Europe
Buildings and projects 1960 - 1970
From May 8-August 1, 2010, the exhibition Richard Neutra in Europe runs at the MARTa Herford Museum in Germany. Richard Neutra is one of the noted architects of the 20th Century, most-known for his mid-century modern villas in California. However his final creative years spent in Europe have been less studied. Last year, Iwan Baan documented all of Neutra’s projects in Europe, focusing on how the projects are being used by people today. The exhibition shows many buildings that had never before been documented, including the Pescher House in Wuppertal, created five years before the architect’s death in the same city. The exhibition of photographs and architecture models shape a greater understanding of Neutra’s cumulative vision in both completed and unrealized projects.

Lakeside Bath Caldaro
Architects: The Next Enterprise Architects
Location: Caldaro (BZ), Italia
Kaltern Lake is a nature reserve and access is restricted to a few bathing establishments on the Northern shore, the only public one being our site. The project’s intention is to strengthen the feeling of public ownership, by blurring the line between public space and reserved areas, and to establish the lido as part of public life, by translating the program into an ambiguous space, that can be used as a place for culture, community life and the experience of a unique landscape, besides its function as a recreational facility.
Curated by Mark Baines of the Mackintosh School of Architecture in collaboration with Steven Holl Architects, this exhibition will illuminate the design process through which the Reid Building, a striking addition to Glasgow’s cityscape, came into being. Staged in the Mackintosh Building, the exhibition will explore the architectural dialogue between these two significant buildings. At the heart of the exhibition will be prints of the watercolour paintings created by Steven Holl Architects as the design of the Reid Building evolved. Watercolour sketches are used to investigate and visualise the architectural form, appearance and the spatial qualities of the interiors, particularly the sources and the interplay of light which are a central feature of the Reid Building, as they are for the world famous Mackintosh Building opposite which it is sited.
