»Max Dudler«

We cordially invite you and your friends to the exhibition opening on May 12, 2017, from 7 to 9 pm.

Max Dudler will be present at the opening and signing the second, updated edition of his book. Prof. Dr. Michael Mönninger will give an introduction at the opening.

Coinciding with the release of the second, updated edition of his book »Max Dudler« with Kehrer Verlag, Kehrer gallery in Berlin is presenting an extensive exhibition of the Swiss architect.

The publication collects Max Dudler’s most important buildings and projects since 1986. This compact compilation shows how Dudler systematically developed a conceptual approach from the history of architecture. The continued occupation with the European city earned the Swiss son of a stonemason one of the most prominent and independent positions in the German speaking architectural scene. Dudler soon went beyond the boundaries of his intellectual roots in rationalism, especially with a particular sensibility for materiality and his rigorous urbanism.

The exhibition »Max Dudler« gives insight into this architect’s work. Important elements of his creative process are assembled here: original hand drawings from the formative years of his office that show Dudler’s roots in the rationalism of his teachers Oswald Mathias Ungers and Aldo Rossi that were developed further with the beginning analysis of these ideas; large-format photographs by architectural photographer Stefan Müller, who in a way shows Max Dudler’s buildings in real size and conveys an impression of the sensuous, almost physical strength of these edifices; models made of pear wood and stone that might be most suitable to convey a perception of the idea of these structures.

These singular perspectives and aspects of the architect in the exhibition are relinked to the pages from the monograph. In this way, exhibition and book complement each other to form a key to Max Dudler’s work.

Max Dudler was born in Altenrhein in Switzerland. He studied architecture at the Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main and at the University of the Arts Berlin. He was a project architect in the studio of Oswald Mathias Ungers, before he established his own firm with Karl Dudler and Pete Wellbergen in 1986. Since 1992 he has been the executive manager of his office, with subsidiaries in Berlin, Zurich and Frankfurt/Main. In 2004 Max Dudler was appointed Professor for Architecture at the Academy of Art Dusseldorf.

Stefan Müller was born in 1965 in Bonn and studied visuell communication in Dortmund from 1990 to 1995.
