Rooftop additions – Dealing with and Benefiting from the 5th Façade in Modern and contemporary architecture

Thursday, 10 June 2021, 7pm

At the seventh event of the series “Context, Contrast, Continuity – Heritage Conservation and Urban Development” roof tops and their different functions in Modern and contemporary architecture will be discussed.

Ranging from (green) rooftop terraces to roof top additions creating more space for housing or solar panels for energy – the different possibilities of rooftops and their benefits will be the focus. What can we learn from Modern architecture for today’s buildings? Which effects on proportions, urban scale and spirit of place do changes bring?

Architects from Tel Aviv and Frankfurt, Amir Peleg and Stefan Forster will discuss the different aspects with Ana Tostoes, architecture historian of DOCOMOMO and with Maria Wüllenkemper, conservation expert of the state of Hesse.

The online discussion event will be conducted in English.

Context, Contrast, Continuity – Heritage Conservation and Urban Development

The international online debate event series “Context, Contrast, Continuity – Heritage Conservation and Urban Development” focuses on how the needs of conservation as well as development requirements can be managed in the urban context. How can historically developed urban fabrics/structures or singular buildings withstand the pressure for change from e.g. the real estate industry or housing demands? What can be done by the City’s administration, politicians and society to protect its cultural heritage? How can existing buildings be integrated into the ongoing development and possibly be adapted to the new standards of living of our era?  Researchers and professionals from Israel as well as Germany will address and discuss these and similar questions.

The international online debate event series “Context, Contrast, Continuity – Heritage Conservation and Urban Development” is a cooperation of the Liebling Haus- White City Center (Tel Aviv Yafo), the Deutsches Architekturmuseum and the ernst-may-gesellschaft (Frankfurt am Main), as well as of ICOMOS and Do.Co.Mo.Mo of Germany and Israel. It forms part of the 40th anniversary of the City Partnership Frankfurt Tel Aviv-Yafo and has been made possible by the federal sponsoring program “Nationale Projekte des Städtebaus – Aufwertung der Siedlungen des Neuen Frankfurt”.
