Zukunft Schulbau

Aedes Architekturforum

Aedes Architekturforum, Berlin

24 – 25 June 2019



By the school year 2024/25, in Berlin alone, an additional 70,000 pupils will need space to learn and work. To mark the exhibition “European Examples of Contemporary School Architecture” from 25 June to 8 August 2019, the two-day conference entitled “Zukunft Schulbau” [Future School Building] (run by the Aedes Architekturforum on 24 and 25 June) will examine the resulting new demands on schools. 


Sustained population growth and the associated increase in the number of pupils are leading to stress on the existing infrastructure and to organisational challenges, especially in conurbations. German federal states are responding to this issue with an investment policy aimed at building, expanding and renovating schools, the implementation of which requires innovative architectural solutions. 

And not only are the numbers of pupils continuously increasing, but so are the demands placed on schools as institutions: longer periods of childcare, all-day schools (traditionally many German schools only work until lunchtime), pedagogical concepts with a focus on individual well-being are required. The equipment and accompanying services are becoming more and more extensive and space as a “third teacher” is gaining in importance. What do architects have to bear in mind considering these developments when building schools? How should schools be designed today and what spatial facilities should they be able to offer? What differences are there between urban and rural areas when building schools?

During the conference, international architects and architectural offices will present examples of school building projects in Europe and Berlin, while speakers will discuss spatial design, process work and participation. All the presentations will have open discussion sessions at the end. Tickets must be booked in advance.
