Simona Malvezzi is the co-founder of Kuehn Malvezzi, an acclaimed Berlin-based practice established in 2001. The practice is renowned especially for its work curating and designing exhibitions such as the warehouse conversion and exhibition venues for Documenta 11, the major international showing of contemporary art which takes place every five years in Kassel, Germany. Other notable projects by Kuehn Malvezzi include the expansion of Berlin’s old Hamburger Bahnhof railway station and its conversion into a gallery for the Flick Collection, as well as the Julia Stoschek Collection permanent exhibition and living space, which was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award. Kuehn Malvezzi have designed and converted a number of galleries for historical and contemporary collections, including museums with special technical requirements.
“We are teaching a course at Aalto University focusing on exhibition architecture and the best way to present architecture to the public,” states Professor Jenni Reuter, curator of the lecture series.
“I am confident that Kuehn Malvezzi can share interesting new perspectives on this topic with our students and all others interested in the visual design of exhibitions. The optimum way to present architecture is a topic of great interest on which Kuehn Malvezzi can offer inspiring new insights.”
