CUE-GIVER: HERMANN CZECH

For more than 30 years, the Aachen Monday Evening Conversations have formed the climax of the university life of the Faculty of Architecture of RWTH Aachen University and are appreciated by many people interested in architecture.

This winter semester, the starting point for the conversations will be the written and built work of Hermann Czech. Hermann Czech studied architecture with Konrad Wachsmann and Ernst A. Plischke. His works include the renovation of the Palais Schwarzenberg, Vienna, the Rosa-Jochmann- School, Vienna-Simmering, as well as numerous restaurants and urban plannings. Hermann Czech was a visiting professor at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, at Harvard University, Cambridge and at the ETH-Zürich. His work was awarded with the Great Berlin Art Prize, and the Medal of Honour of the Capital Vienna among others.

Hermann Czech has not only commented by building, in the medium of architecture, but also by writing on essential and highly current topics in architecture. Especially the terms Mannerism, Objectivity, Conversion, Utilization and Comfort are made concrete in the extensive work of Hermann Czech. These terms will be explained and interpreted by Hermann Czech, the "cue-giver" of the lecture series at RWTH Aachen University. Subsequent to the opening speech by Czech on December 3rd 2012, Ernst Hubeli, Ullrich Schwarz, Urs Füssler, Jörg Leeser, Wilfried Kuehn and Marcel Meili will take up Czech's cues, relate them to their own work and further evolve them in the sense of an ongoing conversation.
