Martin Rein-Cano, “Superficial Surfaces”

Founded in Berlin in 1996 by Martin Rein-Cano, Topotek1 works with landscape at the intersection of architecture, urban design, music, and art. To illustrate aspects and strategies of the firm’s philosophy and approach, which often involves a recontextualization of design features and scenography, Rein- Cano’s lecture will examine one of the firm’s large-scale projects, the urban ambiance for Superkilen, in Copenhagen. Topotek1 has received the Deutscher Städtebaupreis (2002), Deutscher Architekturpreis (2003), and honors from the Chamber of German Landscape Architects (BDLA), among others. A master plan for the Danish city of Høje Taatstrup, the urban design of Port Jeune in Mulhouse, and Lorsch Abbey, a UNESCO World Heritage site, are among its current projects.
