Opening at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts the German exhibition "Ecology.Design.Synergy" from October 2-25, 2011 in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut in Jordan

Every day, the media reports an imminent climate disaster, melting ice-caps and the ever-increasing hole in the ozone layer. The problems we are about to face are overwhelming and we cannot offer comprehensive solutions. Nonetheless, we must work on linking future economic development and the exploration of the environment and nature in such a way that coming generations are not deprived of opportunities and development. This course of action is defined as sustainability. It is one of our most important tasks for the future, and it presents contemporary architecture with a particular challenge: what we build today, and the way we build it, will help determine the future.
In the exhibition, both common and company-specific projects are presented in an attempt to assess the results of previous collaboration, as well as perspectives for the future. Among the projects that will be displayed are the RiverParc Development in Pittsburgh, the Senscity Paradise Universe in Las Vegas/Nevada and the Norddeutsche Landesbank in Hanover.
The exhibition is the result of a joint effort between the German Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations (ifa), the forum of architecture Aedes, and the Stuttgart-based architectural firms Behnisch Architekten and TransSolar ClimateEngineering. The two firms have been collaborating for many years in an endeavor to develop solutions for sustainable and responsible architecture on an international scale.
By orientating the arrangement to the sensuous perception of mankind, curator Frank Ockert illustrates that a sensitive and responsible approach to the man-made environment is not only a matter for experts, but for each individual person.

The Houses of Neruda an exhibition of photographs about the houses of the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.

Opening at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts on September 14th 2011, an exhibition of photographs about the houses of the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.

Through a series of digital photographs you will visit the houses of Pablo Neruda and will enjoy the roots of his poetry. Exploring the homes he built in Chile, is to undertake a magical journey of initiation through these residences designed especially by the poet to achieve great transformation and creation.
His three famous homes, now converted into museums: La Chascona, La Sebastiana and Isla Negra, can certainly not be accused of architectural pretentiousness or sophistication. Full of life and vibrant energy, it is the simplicity and lightness of their materials that make them so welcoming. The building style is intuitive and humble, constructed with the assistance of an architect and a builder but basically designed and modeled by the poet himself.
His homes are characterized by a deep relationship with the land that sustains them, for each one is “the place” chosen by the Nobel laureate to provide the necessary resources for poetic creation.
Through his homes, Neruda seems to cry out that magic exists. In these houses, the poet constructs, organizes, eats, loves, receives, celebrates, is born and dies, reminding us that anything can be made to flourish, whether it be a simple tool or a star.
The exhibition is in cooperation with the Fundación Pablo Neruda – Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de Chile - Embajada de Chile en Jordania
The exhibition will run through October 15th 2011.
