Simply Complex

INTEF, Darmstadt

Everyone is already getting excited about the Bauhaus anniversary – and estate agents even think a flat roof is enough to make a claim about Bauhaus style in their ads. Yet, little attention is paid to the HfG Ulm, which closed 50 years ago; underground trains and dental facilities just aren’t as collectible as geometric chess games or unfunctional floor lamps.



 

Therefore, it is all the more gratifying then that publishers Scheidegger and Spiess have decided to come out with a comprehensive publication on the construction of the HfG Ulm, which they are going to launch during the Frankfurt Book Fair in Darmstadt at the Institut für Neue Technische Form (INTEF) – being the institute for new technical design. You’ll have to find out for yourself what is really going to happen there apart from speeches and discussions, but we can tell you that despite Otl Aicher’s predilection for them, there will be none of those famous southern German noodles called Spaetzle. Since visitor tickets to the Book Fair are valid for the entire Frankfurt metropolitan (and RMV area), book fair visitors can also go to Darmstadt without having to shell out much. There might be other things of interest to them in this city with at least two Ulm scholars teaching in the university’s design department today, not to mention erstwhile Ulmers and current Darmstadt residents, Peter von Kornatzki and Bernd Meurer.
