Ettore Sottsass | The 1950s
13.04. – 23.06.2012
Exhibition view ETTORE SOTTSASS | OLIVETTI CONNECTION, Hans-Peter Jochum
Architect and Designer Ettore Sottsass has had a long standing, tight working connection with the house of Olivetti, a productive connection that is the focus of two parallel exhibitions: Ettore Sottsass at Ulrich Fiedler, and Olivetti Connection at Hans-Peter Jochum. The show at Ulrich Fiedler Gallery features Ettore Sottsass’ work from the fifties, while Hans-Peter Jochum is exhibiting the Olivetti Connection, a show dedicated to key exponents from the design and architecture archives of the OLIVETTI business empire – objects whose breadth and significance was determined by the likes of Ettore Sottsas, Ugo Sissa, Studio BBPR and Hans von Klier.

Berlin architects ROBERTNEUN redefine inner city living and create open space condominiums on empty urban planning sites at the southern point of Gleisdreieck. The scheme for Am Lokdepot reflects an unconventional, experimental approach to alternative and future-oriented living structures, implemented on behalf of the UTB property development company, LLC. The project will repurpose a defunct Berlin railroad area occupying some 28,000 sqm , while maintaining its industrial flair. Am Lokdepot (at the locomotive rail yard) is an urban planning endeavor for the development of inner city space that has recently become available, which will transform the disused railway ground at Gleisdreieck into a public living space.
In cooperation with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt, the German Federal Cultural Foundation initiated the multi-part ÜBER LEBENSKUNST project, which has been bringing together actors from a wide range of disciplines to identify existing strategies and develop models of sustainable living fit for daily life. During the 101-hour Festival ÜBER LEBENSKUNST artists, scientists and activists turned the Haus der Kulturen der Welt into a place where visitors can try out the sustainable “art of living”.
