the Architecture Class presents:

Petra Blaisse, Designer (Inside Outside, Amsterdam): [ Shifting Positions ]
Thursday, 18th January, 19h, Aula

Alle Veranstaltungen der Architekturklasse finden in englischer Sprache statt.

Dutch designer Petra Blaisse works in a multitude of creative areas, including textile, landscape and exhibition design. She founded Inside Outside in Amsterdam in 1991. Inside Outside specializes in the rare combination of both interior and exterior design, interweaving architecture and landscape. Blaisse first gained international acclaim for her innovative exhibition-installations in the eighties and nineties, her golden theatre curtain for the Nederlands Dans Theater, her vast curtains and poured floors for Lille Grand Palais in France and her spiralling 'sound curtain' for the Kunsthal in Rotterdam.

In the landscape field appreciation grew between 1990 and 2000 when Blaisse worked on the Museumpark in Rotterdam ('92) with French landscape architect Yves Brunier, designed a 'Connective Landscape' for an area in the city of Seoul ('97) (with architects Jean Nouvel, Mario Botta, Terry Farrel and OMA), the Universal Headquarters gardens in Los Angeles (OMA).

The Städelschule Architecture Class Lecture Series is supported by the Architekten- und Stadtplanerkammer Hessen.
