On the occasion of the Baumeister Curated edition 2021, designed by the internationally renowned Norwegian architecture firm Snøhetta, Baumeister is hosting a three-part virtual conversation series to highlight three different topics from different perspectives. Together with the Norwegian office, Baumeister invites selected guests to participate. The concept of the conversation series continues the concept of the magazine.

Architecture Communicates Culture. The second Baumeister Curated Talk explores the tension between the concepts of architecture, communication and culture. On this topic, we discuss with two international experts who deal with exactly these questions: Craig Dykers, as one of the founders of the architecture firm Snøhetta, has designed cultural buildings such as the museum at Ground Zero in Manhattan and the Oslo Opera House. In the June issue of Baumeister, curated by Snøhetta, he reflected in an essay on an expanded concept of culture and the cultural mediation function of architecture. Carlos Bayala’s London-based agency New Creative Sciences focuses on communication and human interaction. This ranges from the scientific study of neuronal patterns of perception to the organisation of dialogue between the Colombian Farc rebels and civil society. We want to talk with Craig and Carlos about the challenge of identifying cultural points of connection in a globalised world that are legible to all and exclude no one. We would like to discuss the question of where the boundaries between cultural identity and cultural exclusivity lie, and how we can design architecture that is connected to a specific place and its people and yet is recognisably part of a plural society.
