06. & 07. 06. 2020
Reopening of the exhibition “Highnoon am Killesberg” on June 6th & 7th, 2020 !!
06. & 07. 06. 2020

Due to the corona pandemic, the special exhibition “High Noon am Killesberg – Postmodern versus Modern” had to close abruptly from March 13th, 2020. In order to enable the students to round off their exhibition, we open the doors of the Weissenhof Werkstatt in the Mies van der Rohe house for a weekend.

In the early 1980s, the architectural movement of postmodernism gained worldwide attention and led to controversial discussions. In 1981 Jürgen Joedicke, the director of the Institute for the Foundations of Modern Architecture, organized an international symposium on the subject of architecture of the future, future of architecture. Well-known architects discussed their views of architecture. The aim was to take a critical look and to present approaches for future architecture.
In the exhibition designed by students of the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Stuttgart, the showdown postmodern versus modern revives again!
The focus of the exhibition is on the comparison and analysis of the different attitudes of the architects for debate. Submitted sketches of ideas for critical handling of the Weißenhof estate are shown. In addition, projects in downtown Stuttgart are analyzed: the State Gallery as a masterpiece of postmodernity in Germany and the Kleine Schloßplatz, as a place that is associated with a lot of emotions for many people in Stuttgart.
