26.03.2024: StroofKOLLEG on Tour

What actually characterises Beuel? An architectural walk in search of a district's identity with Dr Alexander Kleinschrodt.

Buildings - both historical and more recent - are an important point of reference for the self-image of a city or neighbourhood. Beuel-Mitte has a whole series of examples of this: Many are beautiful, but some are also uncomfortable, and some still face an uncertain future. The assessment of the built environment is always in flux, with new perspectives and priorities emerging over time. This tour is therefore not just about dates and historical facts, but also about meanings and identities: With what values do we look at buildings in our neighbourhood? And what actually characterises Beuel - in architectural terms?

Dr Alexander Kleinschrodt is a cultural scientist and architectural historian. He works as a mediator in the fields of building culture and cultural history and teaches as a lecturer at the University of Bonn. Together with the Werkstatt Baukultur Bonn network, he has organised events on monument preservation and architecture on behalf of Bonn institutions and published a series of architectural guides. He is also an honorary member of the Rheinischer Verein für Denkmalpflege und Landschaftsschutz.
