„Ich sehe was, was du nicht siehst“
Positionen & Perspektiven - Wissen schaffen

Wednesday Evening Lectures at the Department of Architecture in the winter semester 2020/21

Anna-Maria Meister (TU Darmstadt), Torsten Lange (TU Munich)

“Forms, materials and their meaning are never absolute, but are always reconfiguring themselves. As a materialized contribution to the formation of society, architecture (and thus its makers) has a special duty. A critical reflection of the same is still necessary in order to rigorously question ideologies, thought processes or projections – because neither building nor writing can ever be neutral.”

Anna-Maria Meister is an architect and professor of architectural theory and science at the TU Darmstadt.


“Future architecture must not only take social diversity into account, but also ”embody“ it more strongly than before – understanding equal opportunities and inclusion at all levels as a lived practice instead of a mere declaration.”

Torsten Lange, Dipl.-Ing., MSc, PhD, is a guest professor at the Department of Theory and History of Architecture, Art and Design at the Technical University of Munich. He studied architecture as well as the history and theory of architecture at the Bauhaus University Weimar and the Bartlett School of Architecture/UCL, London. His research interests include architecture and urbanism in the socialist states of post-war Europe, as well as the development of transdisciplinary perspectives in architectural studies, especially drawing on gender and queer studies. In the current semester, he holds a lectureship at the Department of ATW Architectural Theory and Science at the TU Darmstadt.
