Notes on Architecture is a series of publications conceived at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar in 2017 to present selected projects that are developed in the wider context of the Chair of Design and Housing. It consists of a loose succession of carefully curated booklets that follow an overarching design concept, each of which contains different but related content and formats. This exhibition presents the issues published to date. It is accompanied by a discussion with invited guests.
I´m Here is a publication presented on the occasion of the exhibition. It sets the focus on the moment of transition between university studies and the time afterwards by juxtaposing interviews with woman graduates from the past three years with situational insights into possible practice scenarios. The theses shown in the presentation are on self-selected topics and pose questions on individual and collective forms of architectural production.
I´m Here addresses the issue of visibility of women in architecture, between the poles of a classical definition of the profession – as freelance or employed architects – and the personal development that studying architecture permits beyond that.
