Werner Düttmann was one of post-war-architecture’s most influental figures in West-Berlin.

The municipality of Hod-Hasharon was established as a cluster of four colonies or neighborhoods, each of which has its own center of public activities. The aim of the proposed municipal civic center is to create a complex of public services in an area common to the four neighborhoods, to unite them into a municipal fabric.
This project utilized the fragmentation of a community to rebuild ties through a social cohesion of colour, light and space. An event took place for one day with colourful fabric draped from the windows of the residential maisonettes above ground floor down to the ground floor units, dynamically and aesthetically changing the space with community engagement. The installation illustrated the effect architecture can have in place.

The city placed the building site in the middle of the Weinhof, just a stone’s throw from the former synagogue, which was destroyed during Kristallnacht.

Sølund retirement community is situated at one of the most distinguished locations in Copenhagen, in the vibrant urban space between the Copenhagen Lakes to the one side and the dynamic city street of Ryesgade to the other. Henning Larsen Architects’ proposal for the new Sølund is designed as one large, continuous building block that engages in close dialogue with the surrounding buildings and creates simple, easily accessible spatialities – both on the inside and on the outside. The project also includes a new daycare centre.

Because the Communauté de Communes (Town Community) Centre had to fit into a business park already denoted by previous building projects (hospitals, police station, office buildings), which had all been subjected to these regulations, we chose to make a different contextual offer in relation to the site and its history.
