"I was young and needed the money - reflection on the ideals of my youth"

Lecture by Gerhard Wittfeld on November 11, 2023 at AKJAA 30 – FOREVER YOUNG.


The Association of German Architects invites you to the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Working Group Young Architects of the BDA in the Projekttheater Dresden.


The title of the event stands on the one hand for the constant renewal of the members of the AKJAA by the younger generation in the BDA, and on the other hand also for the fact that a rebellious element accompanies our advocacy of good architecture – regardless of the question of age. Together, the former and active members of AKJAA are asking themselves if rebellion will keep them forever young.


In line with the question, Gerhard Wittfeld will give a lecture at 18h30 entitled “I was young and needed the money – reflection on the ideals of my youth”, in which he will reflect on his career with the help of some project examples.
