                Ola Uduku (Edinburgh College of Art Edinburgh/ School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture University of Edinburgh ) introduction: Łukasz Stanek (ETH Zurich) Polish: Muzeum Sztuki Nowoczesnej w Warszawie i British Council zapraszają na pilotażowe wydarzenie 3. edycji festiwaluWarszawa w budowie. Cechą szczególną festiwalu „Warszawa w budowie” jest konfrontowanie lokalnych, warszawskich doświadczeń i wiedzy na temat rozwoju miasta z perspektywą międzynarodową. W „pilotażowych odcinkach” 3. edycji festiwalu prezentujemy wykłady wybitnych badaczy, przybliżających słabo znane w Polsce badania na temat architektury i urbanistyki. Pierwszy wykład, poświęcony afrykańskiemu modernizmowi, wygłosi Ola Uduku z Edinburgh College of Art. Wykład dr Oli Uduku dotyczy sytuacji w Afryce po II Wojnie Światowej, gdzie na fali uzyskiwania niepodległości przez kolejne państwa oraz ekonomicznej koniunktury, zaczęto na masową skalę wznosić modernistyczną architekturę. W Afryce Zachodniej zaczęły powstawać plany zagospodarowania miejskiego. Proces ten dotyczył zwłaszcza Ghany, pierwszego subsaharyjskiego kraju, który uzyskał niepodległość (w 1957 roku). Projekty te, obejmujące budynki szkół, kampusów uniwersyteckich, budynki urzędnicze i osiedla mieszkalne, powstawały we współpracy z międzynarodowymi grupami architektów, m.in. z Europy Środkowo-Wschodniej, Wielkiej Brytanii i Australii. Wykład dotyczy powojennej architektury, ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem, przez długi czas niedostrzeganego, wpływu architektów i urbanistów z Europy Środkowo-Wschodniej, w tym Polaków, na architekturę w Afryce Zachodniej od lat 40. do 70. XX wieku. English: Following the move to national ‘independence’ in Africa at the end of World War Two, a new post war period of economic prosperity resulted in the evolution of new Modernist Architecture and Planning schemes being built across West Africa, where Ghana become the first sub-Saharan country to attain independence in 1957. These projects included school building programmes, University campuses, and notable modernist office and residential buildings designed and built with the involvement of an international group of Architects, many from the UK, but also with others from as far afield as Eastern Europe and Australia. This talk discusses this postwar architectural climate and focuses specifically on the under-reported influence of Eastern European architects and planners in the 1947 – 1970s “Modernist” Period in West Africa.

                • Bernd Fesel 8/11 The Zollverein mine

                  The start of Zollverein coal mine was an innovation in itself. It was created in 1830 and was based on the idea of linking several mines into one large one to produce more coal per hour. This idea was so effective that Zollverein became the largest coal mine in the world and after WWII was, in fact, the industrial heart of Europe. When steel and coal came to be mined and produced better and cheaper outside Germany, Zollverein was closed down. Zollverein is a big complex, as large as Essen. To leave this area unused would be dangerous for the whole region. During the International Architecture exhibition, the idea came about to use former industrial sites as industrial heritage - for exhibitions, tourism, or family trips. You have to remember that these sites were off public sight and were never visited. There was hence a lot of people interested in incorporating these spaces into the public sphere of the city. Rem Koolhaas, a well-known Dutch architect, created a plan to start using Zollverein. It was gradually rebuilt, with investment of more than 100 million Euros. Because a lot of the soil on the site was polluted, it had to be taken away, a process which alone took years to be completed. In 2010 when we held the European Capital of Culture title, the regional Ruhr Museum reopened and attracted tens of thousands more visitors than we expected. Zollverein used to welcome around 1 million visitors a year, this year, which is still not over, 2 million visitors went to see it. You really see the public interest, and this is the actual source of re-generation of the complex. If the public was not interested, we would have no chance to renovate the large spaces, no matter how big the investments.

                    A quick tour of the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem Massachusetts. A nice museum that I have never visited before.The roots of the Peabody Essex Museum date to the 1799 founding of the East India Marine Society, an organization of Salem captains and supercargoes who had sailed beyond either the Cape of Good Hope or Cape Horn. All movies and pictures filmed with a Panasonic LX5 pocket camera - edited with Proshow Producer and Sony Vegas.
