Faces and Spaces

40 Years Aedes Architecture Forum

Berlin’s Aedes Architecture Forum is one of the most eminent spaces for architecture and architectural culture in the world. Founded in 1980 by Kristin Feireiss and Helga Retzer, Aedes has since put on five hundred important exhibitions on current themes, featuring many of the world’s most eminent architects. After Retzer’s unexpected death in 1994, Aedes has been run by Feireiss, together with Hans-Jürgen Commerell and a large, committed team of collaborators. Faces and Spaces looks back at four decades of the gallery’s lively and multifaceted history. Engaging and accessible, it arranges by decade the stories and photos of the five hundred people who have presented at Aedes or put on an exhibition there. This book is a captivating and amusing who’s who of the international architecture scene from the postmodern era until today. Also included are images that document key exhibitions as well as the various spaces in Berlin which Aedes has used as a venue, along with a complete list of all shows staged between 1980 and 2020.
