Gropius, Mies, Breuer and Mendelsohn are German giants of mid-Century US Modernism, but one would be hard-pressed to name German architects today who have achieved similar success in the US, despite the fact that the country has one of the most sophisticated design and construction cultures in the world.  Why is it that the world’s premier export economy does not export more architecture? Join us for our spring edition of the  Fireside Chat / Kamingespräch series with Matt Noblett, partner at Behnisch Architekten – whose firm is tied to one of the most prominent names in contemporary German architecture – to discuss innovation and quality in German vs. American architecture and the social, economic, and cultural forces that may be behind the differences in their building economies.

About the GABC Kamingespräche / Fireside Chats

This is an event format offered twice a year (fall and spring) where a political or economic topic is presented by one keynote speaker in a private setting — the home of a generous host in the Boston area. Fireside Chats are exclusively offered to GABC members only and provide an intimate setting and environment for GABC members to mix and mingle and to receive special access to the key note speaker.
