Lecture Jonas Janke (b+)vrijdag 8 december, 17:00
bplus.xyz (b+) is a collaborative architecture practice led by Arno Brandlhuber, Olaf Grawert, Jonas Janke, Roberta Jurčić and Jolene Lee, that operates at the intersection of theory and praxis, and across different media and formats. The practice seeks to engage with the contemporary challenges of our time, particularly those related to social-ecological transformation and adaptive reuse of existing buildings, with ecologically and economically viable answers.
Jonas Janke (DE, 1991) is an architect and partner at bplus.xyz. He has a diverse background in architecture, was trained as an architectural draughtsman before pursuing his studies in Hamburg, Stockholm, and Berlin. He gained valuable experience as a tutor and assistant in various departments including design & typologies, building construction, and structural design. He was part of the team 2038, the German Pavilion at 17th Venice Architecture Biennale 2021. His focus is on new construction materials and methods for adaptive reuse and renovation projects, seeking pragmatic technical and mechanical solutions that use material and construction thoughtfully.
Jonas Janke will talk about legislation as a tool, rather than an obstacle, for architecture.
