Anniversary Exhibitions: 50 Years of Architecture - Urban Planning - Landscape Planning at the University of Kassel.

The Kassel Model 1973-2023
In 1973, the new Comprehensive University of Kassel initiated the reform courses of study in architecture,  urban planning and landscape planning. The "Kassel Model" challenged outdated pedagogical concepts, institutional structures and subject content. It pursued a strong social agenda and rethought the relationship between science, planning and society. The appointment of young, innovative university professors underpinned the spirit of departure in terms of personnel as well. Kassel distinguished itself in the German university landscape as a radical educational experiment, from which numerous professional innovations emanated in the years that followed, which had a lasting influence on the disciplines. Even then, many topics were initiated that have taken on a new urgency today in light of climate change and the Anthropocene. The department is taking its 50th anniversary as an opportunity to look back on its own history with critical research in a series of exhibitions and to ask itself what relevance the experiments of that time have for us today.
