Jan Middendorp blogs for Eye – direct from the ‘pregnant oyster’
The venue is fantastic. Dubbed ‘the pregnant oyster’, the Kongresshalle was a gift from the Americans to (West) Berlin, built in 1956 under the direction of architect Hugh Stubbins. Having collapsed under the optimism of its construction in 1980, it was rebuilt in subsequent years and became the ‘Haus der Kulturen der Welt’, the House of World Cultures.

Speed-dating, craft, obsessive photography and The DFC
Revival!: Eighth Annual Friends of St Bride Library Conference St Bride Library, London, 23 and 24 April 2008 This conference, explain the organisers, explores how we reinvigorate contemporary design thinking through a reconsideration of what it is we think we do best. The past has a part to play in such a reconsideration. On offer at this event then are a series of talks and displays, which set out the stories of key practitioners and their re-engagement with what it is they do as designers, writers and makers by looking backward to find fresh creative directions, renewed enthusiasm and a way forward.
