Topic H. Places of Culture

"If we architects were allowed to do consistently what we dream of, the world would be a better place." Zaha Hadid, Architect

Despite digitalisation and medialisation, the starting point for the work of most cultural institutions in Europe is a physical place. Whether the respective site is a globally acclaimed building designed by a star architect, the cultural conversion of an existing site such as an industrial building, or a temporary performance in an urban space - localisation is part of the artistic production. What are the success criteria for new places of culture? How can cultural places trigger new social discourses? The track broadly summarises the concept of cultural property in order to focus on the emergence and development of cultural relevant places. It contrasts official planning with civil society initiatives, established institutions with new developments, tried and tested strategies with innovative simulation and analysis methods. The discussion of the different approaches shows the current trends in dealing with cultural places in the European cultural market.
