Architecture in the Soviet Bloc is usually considered to be a matter either of monumental pomposity or endless prefabricated blocks of flats, and damned accordingly. This talk will ask how this perception emerged, and discuss some of the projects - such as communal housing in Moscow, experiments in 'open form' in Warsaw, and postmodernism in East Berlin - that suggested different directions for a 'Communist architecture' from the stereotype, and that might have suggested entirely different ways of life altogether from both the 'west' and the 'east' in the cold war. In large auditorium. Welcome!
2. December Statsbygg handed out their Student Award 2015 at BAS to the winner Karoline Kalstveit. Representative from Statsbygg's Western Region Maria Rosabelle Williams gave the check of NOK 20.000,- to the winner of the three nominated projects. "Statsbygg wishes to encourage innovative and experimental studies of architecture among future generations of architects. The Student Award will be handed out to one or more student projects at the master level for particularly innovative and well executed project work performed in accordance with state guidelines within the field of architecture. In the evaluation, emphasis is placed on clarity in quality and form, in terms of identity, practical usefulness and aesthetic value". Read the speach from Statsbygg and the comments from the Jury on the projects.
