In three thematic blocks the international conference in Berlin will discuss different aspects of digitisation related to archives, museum, social media, planning and design tools. The focus is less on the technical aspects of digitals aspects but is asking on how digital tools can help to involve different stakeholders to communicate and disseminate the concepts, visions and impulses emanating from modern movement.


The invited keynote speakers Matthias Sauerbruch (Sauerbruch Hutton) and Donatella Fioretti / José Gutierrez Marquez (Bruno Fioretti Marquez Architekten) will present own projects and comment on these questions and in particular introduce the role of architecture as a planning and design discipline. 


In the evening the photographer Jean Molitor will present his movie "Wettlauf gegen die Zeit" to discuss his approach of using photography as a mean to raise awareness about the role of architecture for community-building with the speakers and the public.
Selected photographs are presented in the foyer during the event.


The event will be accompanied by excursions to sites of  post-war modernism in Berlin. These take place on Thursday, 5 March 2020 and on Saturday, 7 March 2020 before and after the conference: Architecture Faculty with Architecture Museum and Akademie der Künste. Further information will be annouced later.
