Art & Architecture

Your coordinators are Daniela Lorenz and Barbara Reine

Born in Czechoslovakia she lived there, in the UK, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Russia, and for many years now she has lived in Germany. She is interested in languages, history, politics, architecture and art, the protection of nature, gardening, nordic walking and tennis.

She has been member of the BIWC since 2006 and started coordinating the activities of Art and Architecture in 2011. Berlin is for her a fascinating place which can be endlessly explored. She focuses on architecture, especially industrial architecture in the time of the rapid industrial development in Berlin at the end of the 19th and the beginning of 20th centuries – attractive architectural style based on historical models and often reconstructed with modern elements. The activities also include other architecturally interesting buildings, churches, embassies, former army barracks and art exhibitions. They usually take up to two hours and afterwards we chat for a while in a café or restaurant..

Some ot the activities Daniela has offered so far: the former Borsig Factory in Tegel, the industrial courtyards near Moritzplatz in Kreuzberg, the Oberbaum City in Friedrichshain, the protestant church at Hohenzollernplatz, the Dutch, Mexican and Russian embassies, the exhibition of Susanne Ruof and old Tempelhof, artists´ studios in Wedding.
