The Building Culture Workshop "Historic Layers of the City" will take place May 10 and 11, 2017 at Mainz City Hall.

Every society decides again and again in what condition it will leave its built heritage to its descendants. Our towns and villages are therefore a symbol of our value system.

Around three percent of buildings in Germany are architectural monuments. Thirty percent of our built environment is considered worthy of preservation. This stock and the everyday architecture shape the majority of living spaces and contribute to identity and well-being. In times of climate change, the "grey energy" bound up in existing buildings is also an argument for looking even more intensively at their continued use and transformation into the future.

Under the title "Historical Layers of the City", the Federal Foundation for Building Culture is organising the first Building Culture Workshop in the series "Heritage.Existing Buildings.Future" - the thematic framework of the Building Culture Report 2018/19 - on 10 and 11 May in Mainz.

The aim of the event is to reflect on the recognition and evaluation of urban development eras and to develop concepts for the consideration of existing structures as part of modern urban development.

The event kicks off on 10 May with two interactive walks, freely selectable on the topics of urban layers or urban repair. Afterwards, the Zentrum Baukultur Rheinland-Pfalz and the Bundesstiftung Baukultur jointly invite you to an evening reception in the Brückenturm Mainz.

In cooperation with the state capital Mainz, the workshop day will take place on 11 May in the town hall. The striking and controversial building from the 1970s with its council chamber in the style of an arena offers ideal space for expert impulses and points of view, which will then be discussed in direct exchange with the speakers at workshop tables.

The Bundesstiftung Baukultur cordially invites participants from a wide range of disciplines such as architecture, architectural history and theory, archaeology, urban planning, monument preservation, urban marketing and politics as well as interested members of the public to the event. The bdla is a cooperation partner.

Participation in the event is free of charge.
