Architecture and Revolts: Talks Marking 50th Jubilee

What makes the University of Bremen’s architecture special and how is the idea of a reform uni reflected in it? That is what a talk by the expert Eberhard Syring is all about. It will take place at 6 p.m. on May 20, 2021, as part of a series marking the University of Bremen’s 50th birthday.

In the 1970s, the young University of Bremen was a talking point as a reform university. The question of whether the university’s architecture reflected or contradicted the approaches of the “Bremen Model” was posed. In his talk, Professor Eberhard Syring will shed light on the main architectural concepts of the late modern era that influenced the University of Bremen in the context of reform approaches. Additionally, he will compare and contrast the concepts and buildings from the founding phase with the content-related redirection towards natural and engineering science focus areas in the 1980s, which was also accompanied by an architectural change in paradigm. The event will take place digitally via Zoom and participation is possible via this link: https://uni-bremen.zoom.us/j/96147367090?pwd=Sy9oNURqaXJER0E3TUprRlVWT3o1QT09 (ID: 961 4736 7090; access code: 307558)
