Sehen und Fühlen

„Heimtextilien kann man am besten „live“ erfahren und erfühlen. Deshalb ist die Messe wohl hier das geeignetste Mittel diesen bunten vielfältigen Strauß zu erleben, aber auch Blumen am Wegesrand zu finden.“ Alexander Brenner

CV Alexander Brenner

Alexander Brenner studierte Architektur und Städtebau an der Universität Stuttgart und unterrichtete auch über 20 Jahre an verschiedenen Hochschulen Städtebau und Entwerfen - zuletzt 2008 in einer Vertretungsprofessur für räumliches Gestalten an der Hochschule Biberach.

Sein Atelier in Stuttgart wurde 1990 gegründet. Seit dem Umzug in das Atelierhaus in der Parlerstrasse ist die Zahl der Mitarbeiter auf 15 angewachsen, die interdisziplinär mit viel Herzblut an den Projekten arbeiten.

Brenner versteht sich als Generalist, für den die Wohnbedürfnisse seiner Auftraggeber immer im Vordergrund stehen. „Ein Wohnhaus muß wie eine ruhige Leinwand sein, vor der das Leben der Bewohner spielen kann.“ sagt Alexander Brenner und meint damit, dass das Haus zuallererst den Bewohnern dienen soll. Bautechnische und haustechnische Elemente werden in seinen Bauten hinter grossflächigen Verkleidungen verborgen.

Textile trends 2018 - a joint discovery

"The 'heimtextil' fair in Frankfurt is one of the most important platforms for trends and innovation.

In close exchange with manufacturers, we will explore topics like object suitability, trendy colors and new material." Jana Vonofakos

textile. tactile. trends

"The growing desire for tactile and sensual experiences is not only reduced to the private living area. The longing for more materiality can also be seen in office, retail, hotel and wellness places. Texiles create an atmosphere of well-being and add an individual touch. The Heimtextil is an inspirational source for the vast diversity of textiles with all their design and application possibilities for different areas of life." Lien Tran

Textiles in the creation of space

"Like Gottfried Semper, who maintained that textiles are the primary motivation for architectural embellishment, we architects see the appearance and feel of the entire space; the interplay of light, colour and textures. An important role as a “garment” is assigned to textiles in all their gradations. They clothe, line and wrap the space." Klaus de Winder

Meeting Point: Outook Lounge Hall 4.2 Foyer Involvement in the founding of the Potsdam University architectureprojects such as the Munster Technology Centre with Bolles + Wilson and the multiple award-winning Photonics Centre with sauerbruch hutton architects.
