The first annual conference of the Stiftung Baukultur will focus on the mutual relation between baukultur and the city, understood as a social as well as an artefactual milieu. The conference explores how cities influence baukultur, by the way that they accumulate layers of history, combine expertise and craft, and propel design and planning cultures, as well as how baukultur offers qualities to a city by creating qualitative living environments, locations with a strong identity and sustainable places.
