This month, we are honouring a four-decade-long commitment to greater awareness of the potential of architecture and urban planning. For the November issue of STADTKIND magazine, Kathrin spoke to six people of Hannover’s AG Stadtleben who are tirelessly developing lectures, exhibitions and publications to raise awareness of the potential of architecture and promote discourse.

July 01, 2023

For the July issue of STADTKIND magazine, Kathrin spoke with two people from Hanover whose professional disciplines could hardly be more different. What Lena Alipoé-Schnetzer and Michael Barsakidis have in common, however, is the use of clamping blocks to make the world not only more colourful, but also a little better.

June 01, 2023

In June, Kathrin explores in her STADTKIND column “wir sind dran” (“it’s our turn”) the question of what it takes to accept built space with all its facets in an appreciative way. What can hinder my enthusiasm for architecture? Or how does architecture win me over? Swantje Osburg and Dr Turit Fröbe know the answers.

April 01, 2023

For the April issue of our STADTKIND column “wir sind dran” (“it’s our turn”), Kathrin Albrecht talks to Anna Brandes, a dialog designer from Hanover, and Dr. Tania Ost, an architectural communicator from Berlin, about the topic of space in its architectural, but also philosophical, richness.

March 15, 2023

Architecture enthusiasts, communicators and sustainability fans met for the first meeting of the Lower Saxony regional group of the Netzwerk Architekturkommunikation (NAK) in Hanover at the premises of BAUKUNST.PLUS.

Kronsrode under construction

The first episodes of our multi-part short film reportage series “Behind the Facade” for our client KS-Original GmbH on Lower Saxony’s largest construction project Kronsrode are now also on the website of the Chamber of Architects of Lower Saxony.

March 01, 2023

In the third issue of the monthly column “wir sind dran” (“it’s our turn”) in STADTKIND magazine, Kathrin Albrecht has chosen an interlocutor whose work at the intersection of architecture and responsibility is not immediately obvious. Why? March 8 is International Women’s Day.

February 01, 2023

In the February issue of STADTKIND magazine’s monthly column “wir sind dran” (it’s our turn), Kathrin Albrecht tells the heroine’s story of a master builder who works at the interface of architecture and responsibility. Isabel Fiedler is currently making several Hanoverian relics of Brutalism not only outwardly presentable again, but is also bringing them technically into the present – and doing so in an extremely sustainable way.

January 01, 2023

Knowledge about the impact of construction on climate, resources, waste generation, biodiversity and especially on society – both good and negative – needs to be much more in the public eye and discourse. From January 2023, Kathrin Albrecht will therefore be telling hero stories of people who work at the interface of architecture and responsibility in her monthly column “wir sind dran” (“it’s our turn”) in STADTKIND magazine.

What happens when we don’t speak to each other? When strangers meet for dinner and do not communicate with words? What remains in the speechlessness? How is our impact? What is the effect of silence? What do we perceive?

November 11, 2022

The third episode of the multi-part series HINTER DER FASSADE for KS-ORIGINAL has been launched!
In the interview series, various experts give us an overview of the Kronsrode construction project in the southeast of Hanover with approximately 4,000 residential units in 37 construction fields.

October 11, 2022

Communication has a central function in these actual phases of change. With know-how from architectural communication, CSR and transformation management, Kathrin Albrecht and Petra Ronzani outlined at this year’s BIGG CHANGE Conference how to meet the internal and external challenges “futureproof” through communication.

July 18, 2022

The second episode of our interview series HINTER DER FASSADE for KS-ORIGINAL is online. In the multi-part series, we provide an overview of Lower Saxony’s largest new development Kronsrode in the south-east of Hanover with film and text contributions.

June 21, 2022

Who is POLA, what drives POLA and how does POLA work? We approached these questions by focusing on the people who conceive the built landscapes, but also on those for whom they are built.

June 01, 2022

We are very pleased that Kathrin Albrecht will be a speaker at Europe’s first conference and exhibition for more sustainability in the building industry!
Under the umbrella and in partnership with the globally renowned GREENTECH Festival and the DGNB, BIGG CHANGE will take place on 23-24 June at the former Berlin Tegel Airport.

May 15, 2022

As part of the editorial team, we are pleased about the book publication of the first volume “Prologue: On Finding a Stance” of the publication series “Der Nachhalt” by the architectural firm caspar.

730 days = 24 months = 2 years. In the beginning, we counted the days, which quickly merged with the long Corona months and have since grown in number to the point where we may return to single digits: BAUKUNST.PLUS celebrates its second birthday today. Read more about the turbulent walking attempts in the note.

Art is drawn to the den …

Finally, our hallway is no longer empty and white – but full of colorful creative works dedicated exclusively to the animal world! Under the motto “We are all mad here!”, Vera Burmester has put the artwork we’ve purchased at exhibitions, received as gifts from friends, or borrowed from our children’s collections into beautiful order and hung it in our hallway as a “private zoo”.

Who is POLA and who are the people behind our designs? (…) This booklet is an invitation – to recognise who we are, who POLA is. To understand that our work would not be the same as what we do if we were not who we are.”

November 25, 2021

The first part of our interview series HINTER DER FASSADE for KS-ORIGINAL has been launched. In a multi-part series, we use film and text contributions to illuminate the various facets of Lower Saxony’s largest new development.

It took the “Star Wars”-crazy son to make Kathrin sit up and think about the pun on his favorite epic: “Sand Wars.” What is it actually all about, the battle for the sand?

German Center for Music Technology

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.” we learned recently. Our new client, the German Rock Music Foundation, has a dream that also immediately excited us. In the middle of Hannover’s district Nordstadt, it wants to build the backwardPLAYforward, a German Center for Music Technology, on its own property and with cultural funding from the federal government. B+ is helping to turn the dream into an achievable goal.

10 Jahre kreHtiv

10 years kreHtiv – the anniversary celebration

It all started with a vision: a network for Hannover’s professional creative scene that creates charisma for the location and makes Hannover known as a creative hotspot far beyond the region’s borders. Eight years after kreHtiv was founded, BAUKUNST.PLUS became part of this charming community of Hanoverian creatives. Due to the pandemic, we were not able to meet in a large group until 1.5 years after joining – which made the networking all the more enjoyable and intensive!

September 16, 2021

We like POLA

New customers and project partners usually come to us by recommendation or via www. With POLA it was different. This pearl among the landscape architects scene, whose charming name is the abbreviation for “Poetic Landscapes”, inspired us with its very artistic project images. Long story short: We offered our PR support, are now communicating for POLA, and are thrilled about the collaboration.

What to do when the pandemic makes live networking difficult for kreHtiv, Hannover’s first port of call for professional creatives, for the second year in a row now?

“When will we finally get there?” asks the Hanover-based STADTKIND magazine in its current issue commemorating International Women’s Day on March 8, 2021, in which it portrays BAUKUNST.PLUS with the headline “City kids are brave.”

There could not have been a more appropriate date for this general meeting of the German Sustainable Building Council at the Hospitalhof in Stuttgart than the official Sustainability Day.

On board at DGNB

„Sustainability is not just the latest trend, it’s a golden opportunity to meet the biggest challenge of our time – climate protection. And the best way to do that is to work together!“ That is why we became a member of the German Sustainable Building Council.

What do we want to celebrate and emphasize with the corporate design and later also with the help of corporate (interior) architecture for the Alipoé-Schnetzer practice? The uniqueness of each person – employee and patient alike. The office equipment developed by formsport Berlin is correspondingly individual!

Founding of BK+

Since the topic of female empowerment is a matter close to our hearts – besides architecture and sustainability – BAUKUNST.PLUS was launched on „Weiberfastnacht“. How nice when the date of birth brings along such a wonderful numbers set: 02-20-2020!
