Press release from: gisela graf communications

Aarhus may be only the second biggest and second oldest city in Denmark, but this 330,000 inhabitant city in Jutland is home to country's oldest university. Many who have studied there end up staying – there must be a reason. It is worth taking a closer look at this city that lays in the shadow of Copenhagen – especially now, since it is the 2017 European Capital of Culture.

In addition to presenting key buildings of the twentieth century, the Architectural Guide Aarhus also introduces spectacular buildings of the recent period and the near future. Ten geographic tours lead to 135 buildings and projects of the last hundred years: from the city hall (Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller) to cultural buildings such as the ARoS Aarus Art Museum (Schmidt / Hammer / Lassen and Olafur Eliasson), from the city centre to the university (CF Møller), from the new harbour front to the "Eutopia" project, which should transform the ghettoised satellite town of Gellerup into a vital and integrated part of the city – a task that many cities are currently faced with. Complementary essays by five Danish guest authors provide background knowledge on the city's history, neighbourhoods, and significant architects who have made Aarhus a European architectural metropolis, and not only since 2017, the year of the Capital of Culture. For architecturally, Aarhus is anything but provincial. Internationally known, long-established, as well as young and innovative offices have their headquarters here; for example C.F. Møller, Schmidt / Hammer / Lassen or CEBRA. The city of knowledge and education also has a prestigious architecture school that enables Aarhus to have the largest architectural heritage in Denmark as well as take care of the necessary urban development and architectural planning – for this city, which is also flirting with the issue of being the "smallest metropolis of the world", is incessantly growing. The largest urban development potential is currently offering large sections of the former port areas, which allow the city centre to expand to the water's edge.

This Architectural Guide is aimed at all those who want to envision the cultural capital as well as get an overview of its outstanding architecture.

During the second half of the twentieth century countless concrete panels sailed through the skies: not only physically from factory to construction site, or from country to country, but also figuratively.

Their symbolism made them an emblem for the promise of
Mass Housing in the Socialist City. Heritage, Values, and Perspectives
Prefabricated mass housing in cities from formerly socialist countries represents an enormous volume of residential housing today and is therefore an important tool for the future urban development within these cities. But transformation of these districts is needed due to the functional, societal, and technical challenges that they face. How can these - sometimes gigantic - structures from the 1960s and 70s be adapted to today's needs? How can a
Architectural Guide Moon
Mankind first reached the moon on July 21, 1969. This celestial body had always been a place of longing for earth's inhabitants but this date really set things in motion.
