Module Architectural Analysis

Exhibition Workshop: The Gift of Architecture

Master Level 4 SWS / 6 ECTS
Lecturer: Dr. Damjan Kokalevski / Prof. Lukasz Stanek University of Michigan

Workshop with students from the University of Michigan to develop the exhibition concept for the forthcoming show The Gift of Architecture at the Architekutmuseum der TUM to open in February 2024. This exhibition focuses on buildings gifted since World War II on four continents and studies how gift-giving dynamics impacted their design, construction, and everyday uses. They include a colonial-era university in Kumasi (Ghana), Cold War gift diplomacy in Skopje (N. Macedonia), corporate philanthropy in East Palo Alto (USA), and competitive gift giving in Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia). The course will be divided into two parts. During the reading sessions (online), students will discuss the case studies of the exhibition. During a one-week workshop in Munich, students will work with their peers from the University of Michigan and develop the exhibition strategy, the concept of the narrative, and the exhibition catalog. The workshop will end with an optional two-day trip, including visits to an architectural office that designed gifted buildings.

*Seminar will be held together with students from the Univ. of Michigan
