IMAGINE BOOK LAUNCH
A book launch is normaly an event on which you present a new book to the public…normally…we had to launch in total 3 new books within the imagine book series.
We are proud to announce that we have finshed imagine 03 performance driven envelope in cooperation with Prof. Dr. Holger Techen, imagine 05 Energy together with Thomas Auer and Linda Hildebrand and imagine 06 Reimagining the envelope. We already wrote about the books so have a look about their content by clicking into the tags below.
We celebrated the moment with a small symposium including lectures from Prof. Paul Donelly /Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts I Washington University in St. Louis, Prof. Dr. Holger Techen / imagine structure and Kees Kaan / Claus en Kaan Architects Rotterdam. Thomas Auer from Transsolar was not able to join, he had a few words from Boston via skype, very interesting how small the world becomes ..
Ulrich Knaack mentioned that the series now becomes a real series having published already 6 books in total. The sucess of the books Knaack mentioned is sometimes seen, “when the books find their way to the people he meet before him” and Marcel Bilow ( not visible… as always behind the camera ..) mentioned that the series involved over time, in the beginning they start as a kind of archive to catalyst our own ideas, nowadays the books become a platform of researchers teamed up with the editors and become a valuable source of informations and contents.
After the inspiring lectures, a small party started and the discussions about the concepts and ideas published in the books started directly.
