MAX DUDLER: KONTINUITÄT
In German (subtitles available)
This conference took place in Luxembourg on 13 February 2014, and it was organized by LUCA.
Max Dudler’s approach to architecture combines strictly Swiss minimalism and classic rationalism. Aware of the influence of the built environment on the quality of life, he starts from the principle that architecture is nothing more than the quality of life and bases his vision and actions on this observation.
Max Dudler has acquired international fame: among his most significant projects we can cite, the Deutsche Börse in Frankfurt, the Diocesan Library of Munster, the Ritter Museum in Stuttgart, the Sunrise Tower in Zürich as well as the reallocation and the expansion of the “Hambacher Schloss”, an emblematic site of German and European history 250 km from Luxembourg, awarded of the DAM Prize for Architecture in 2012. He made numerous exhibitions in Germany and Italy. He also teaches courses in several European universities: Venice, Herne, Mantua, Naples, Vienna, Dortmund and Düsseldorf.
Born in Switzerland in 1949, Max Dudler studied at the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Frankfurt and later at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin. Graduated in 1979, he began his career with Oswald Mathias Ungers and took part in the Frankfurt Messe project. In 1986, he established his own firm with Karl Dudler and Pete Welbergen. From 1992, he has headed his own practice, with branches in Berlin, Zürich, Frankfurt and Munich.
