Unter dem Titel Jour fixe veranstaltet die ABK Stuttgart eine traditionsreiche Vortragsreihe innerhalb des Themengebiets Architektur. In diesem Semester dreht sich die Reihe um den englischen Begriff „Matter“, der mit Materie, Substanz, Stoff genauso übersetzt werden kann wie mit Sache, Thema oder Frage. Mit „On Matter“ präsentiert die Akademie internationale Positionen zu Fragen des Stofflichen in der Architektur.

Prof. Peter Salter: „Walmer Yard and the Venice Biennale“

Peter Salter is a British teacher and designer. He has been Head of the School of Architecture at the University of East London and since 2006, Professor of Architectural Design at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff University.

In the 1980’s and 1990’s Salter established his reputation whilst teaching at the Architectural Association. In 2004 he won the Royal Institute of British Architects Annie Spink Award for his outstanding contribution to architectural education. This prize was awarded jointly with Wolf Prix, and confirmed his international standing. His students are amongst the foremost architects now practicing all over the world from Iceland to Germany. 

Walmer Yard is a group of four houses around a courtyard in West London completed in 2018. The complex received a Royal Institute of British Architecture’s National Award in 2017 and has now become an architectural research institution.

The strategy for the design looks at the idea of “close living“ and explores how privacy and quietness can be achieved in such circumstances. The houses exploit the softness of shadow and owe much to the qualities of space more prevalent in the Soane Museum in London than to the bright spaces of most Modernist architecture.

The proposal for the Venice Biennale also examines domestic space as “Freespace“, the title proposed for the exhibition by the curators Grafton Architects. The architecture is expressed as furniture and muses on the relationship between the occupiers’ intimacy and the space of the room. Both projects were developed with the collaboration of Fenella Collingridge. www.walmeryard.co.uk
