MVRDV - ImPossible Germany: Christiane Bürklein Instagram Live talk with Javier Arpa Fernández

ImPossible Germany: Christiane Bürklein Instagram Live talk with Javier Arpa Fernández

On Wednesday July 22nd, as part of the celebration of the latest issue of "Baumeister Curated", MVRDV editor Christiane Bürklein will talk with Javier Arpa Fernández on Instagram Live about the cities of the future, and the approach to participation in German architecture culture.

The editorial concept for this special issue of Baumeister, developed by MVRDV founding partner Winy Maas, turns a mirror on Germany, using the German magazine as a platform to deliver an “outsider’s perspective” on the idiosyncrasies of German architecture. Bürklein contributed to the magazine with an article about the culture of building groups (“Baugruppen”), in which a group of future homeowners collaboratively build multifamily projects with others, in Germany. Fernández also contributed to the magazine in an article interviewing Henk Ovink, the Dutch Special Envoy for International Water Affairs, about water issues in Germany.

The talk starts at 6pm and can be watched live by following MVRDV or Baumeister on Instagram.
