09/05/ – 09/22/2023
Opening: 09/05/2023, 4:00 p.m.
Which housing concepts shaped the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s in Germany, which was still divided at the time? And which of the resulting objects – viewed with the necessary temporal distance – are so significant that they are worth preserving as testimonies to their time?
The exhibition, presented by the LVR Office for Monument Preservation in the Rhineland (LVR-ADR) in cooperation with the Lower Monument Authority of the City of Bonn, takes into account the location at which it is shown: 26 objects from Bonn, built in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, are presented and explained. Among them are housing estates in zigzag style, self-confident examples of postmodernism, terraced buildings with a connection to nature and the glass bungalow of the chancellor – built understatement. Individual Bonn objects are protected as architectural monuments, others, not yet examined in detail, have aroused research interest as buildings typical of their time.
At the exhibition opening on Tuesday, September 5, 2023, 4 p.m., Petra Denny, head of the City of Bonn’s Urban Planning Office, Dr. Anna Skriver, head of the Inventory Department of the LVR Office for Monument Preservation in the Rhineland (LVR-ADR), Dr. Martin Bredenbeck, scientific officer in the Inventory Department (LVR-ADR), and Katrin Bisping, head of the Lower Monument Authority of the City of Bonn, will speak.
