opening of the exhibition of the German Association of Architects` BDA Galerie Berlin in Venice on Friday 27th of August:
“Mäusebunker & Hygieneinstitut: Experimental Setup Berlin
Architetture di G + M Hänska I Fehling + Gogel”
curated by Ludwig Heimbach.
The last year`s much-discussed exhibition was invited by the IUAV on the occasion of the Architecture Biennale and will be presented in an expanded and updated version on the two “brutalist” icons which in case of the “Mäusebunker” (Central Animal Laboratories) are still threatened from demolition while the Hygieneinstitut was set under protection in January.
in the “sala espositivo Gino Valle” of the IUAV, the remarkable building of the former cotton mill “Cotonificio Veneziano” in Venice.
Please note that the exhibition has been brought forward due to Corona-related changes!

Norman Foster Foundation ‘On Archives’ Masterclass Series
The Norman Foster Foundation (NFF) presents the ‘On Archives’ Masterclass Series, a series which explores the fundamental aspects related to architectural archives and libraries around the world. Given by fourteen leading experts in the fields of archiving, architecture, art, design and heritage management, this video series supports the NFF’s extensive educational programme by promoting an exchange of knowledge across a range of geographic and disciplinary perspectives:
Soane Medal Lecture, London, UK
16 November 2021
The Soane Medal continues the mission of Sir John Soane to encourage a better understanding of the central importance of architecture in people’s lives. Established in 2017, the Soane Medal recognises architects, educators and critics who have made a major contribution to their field through practice, history or theory, and in doing so have furthered and enriched the public understanding of architecture.
The winner of the Soane Medal is selected annually by a panel of distinguished architects, critics and curators, led by former Trustee of Sir John Soane’s Museum, Sir David Chipperfield. The recipient of the Medal writes and delivers a lecture, subsequently published by the Museum, at a special annual event in London. The recipient also receives a replica of the original gold medal presented to Sir John Soane by the ‘Architects of England’ in 1835.
Modular Prefab & Construction Tech Senate Amsterdam, The Netherlands
A digital disruption wave is hitting all industry sectors including construction and it is undoubtable that modular constructions can go hand-in-hand with technological development. The basis of volumetric modular systems, or prefabricated construction, is the initial digital 3D design and the ability to utilise Building Information Modelling (BIM) to ensure the building is suitable for the planned location and design requirements. It is also behind the stackable modules used in several storey homes or larger industrial buildings, including hotels and office blocks.
McKinsey & Company calculated that, the market value for modular in new real-estate construction alone could reach $130 billion in Europe and the United States by 2030, delivering annual cost savings of $22 billion. In many countries, modular construction is still very much an outlier but there are strong signs of what could be a genuine broad-scale disruption in the making. It is already drawing in new competitors—and it will most likely create new winners and losers across the entire real estate and construction ecosystem.
Many factors determine whether a given market is likely to embrace modular construction, but the two biggest determinants are real-estate demand and the availability of skilled construction labor. In places such as Germany’s major cities and the southern part of the United Kingdom, labor shortages and large-scale unmet demand for housing intersect, making this model particularly relevant.
Join us at The Modular & Prefabrication Construction to earn insightful knowledge and fruitful discussion on understanding emerging construction technologies, including robotics, 3D imaging and even the use of RFID-BIM which are becoming increasingly leveraged to aid the design and development of modular construction. Those technological capabilities are enhanced, sped up and become more cost-effective and sustainable, when utilised in a controlled by factory setting.
• Learn how to enhance the prefab buildings design with an architectural approach
• Develop the right digital manufacturing line for precast modules
• Increase the efficiencies of modular construction with integrated supply chain system
• Understand the tendering and contracting system in modular construction
• Take advantage of the deployment of IoT, PPVC, DfMA, RFID-BIM, VDC, IDD, and prefab data center for off-site construction
• Exploring the applications of wood concrete composite panels, mass engineered timber, and steel concrete composite systems

Arctic Design Vault
Arctic Design Vault, a non-profit program sponsored by Design Daily, is archiving the world’s architectural digital memories in a deep-freeze repository 800 feet underground and stored in a renovated industrial facility for at least 2,000 years. The first preservation will be deposited near Global Seed Vault in Norway by the end of 2023. Now the program is calling for design works, including but not limited to drawing, rendering, photography, from concept to built form.
With the emerging architectural design works that defined various historical marks, it has a tendency to be deserted, obsolete, or worst-case scenario, though improbable, losing these works through a global calamity. Thus, documenting, preserving, and storing these design works are necessary.
Through the collaboration with multiple channels, and collected drawings, renderings, photographs from architects, firms and designers in a secure process. The design repository will be stored in the deep-underground Arctic vault built by Design Daily or trusted third parties in Svalbard, Norway.
As a part of the future heritage, preserving today’s design works are becoming important to avoid it being obsolete. Sponsored by Design Daily, archiving these works through advanced technics of storage helps ensure the safety and preservation of these data for future generations.

Frequently Asked Questions
– Is it free to join the Arctic Design Vault program?
Absolutely FREE. Since it is a non-profit program sponsored by Design Daily, the participants, as well as memberships, don’t have to pay any fees at any stage. The program is permanently free.
– Who owns the copyright of the submitted design works?
The copyright of the work belongs to you or its original holder from beginning to end. The program is a repository for archiving architectural digital memories. We will not use these works without permission and authorization. Even if getting your permission and authorization, we still have no intention to use your design work in any condition.
– Which certain form of storage are you using to preserve design?
We will collaborate with a trusted third party to convert all digital design works (in the form of binary code) to grey pixels that are inscribed into a four-level grey film that contains eight million data points per frame which contain around 120 GB which could be readable through a digital scanner, microscope, etc. This technology is structured on open-source principles to protect the information at the same time making the data accessible whenever it is needed through a digital scanner and open-source software. At the same time, we still use solid-state hard (SSD) drives for storage as a backup.
– How would this last 2000 years?
The storage for this data would be located deep inside an arctic mountain in Svalbard and it is a demilitarized zone. Thus, making this location suitable to protect valuable data. The cool dry conditions prolong the longevity of the data being stored in this vault. There are successful cases for preventing the loss of irreplaceable data, for example, Global Seed Vault, Arctic World Archive, where they are in the same area with same philosophy.
