On February 19th 2018 Sanne van Manen will be giving a presentation at the 'Vertical Life' aac Workshop in Hamburg, Germany.
The Academy for Architectural Culture (aac) is a private, non-profit institution founded by the architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp). With research studies and intensive courses held throughout the year, the aac is dedicated to finding solutions to relevant architectural issues and the further education of young architects from different cultures. The aac offers additional qualification for highly qualified architectural students, graduates and young architects.
The workshop will focus on the design of a hybrid high-rise for Shenzhen, which as a three-dimensional urban structure shall translate urban qualities into the vertical, by means of a functional mix of public and private functions, of open and closed spaces as well as urban and green elements. With spatial variety, public circulation and communicative open spaces and taking the traditional values of the grown city into account, a current reinterpretation of the Utopia of the “Vertical City” shall be developed.
