Fast wie ein Muttersprachler – How Native is Near Native?

BY ALMUT KETZER
@ VOL 1 ON JUL 04, 2014

How good can your German be if you are not a native speaker, but rather learned the language at a young age?  Through numerous intensive interviews, Almut Ketzer, a PhD student in instructional psychology, has some interesting conclusions about the results thus far.  Sometimes it is not really just about LEARNING the language either. (in German)

 

Wie gut kann dein deutsch sein wenn du nicht Muttersprachler bist?  Kannst du jemals ein C1 oder C2 erreichen? macht der Akzent was aus?  Almut Ketzer, Doktorandin, hat sich mit diesem Thema (mit viele Interviews) beschäftigt und die Resultate sind höchst interessant.

Dialects of Architecture

BY SCOTT COHEN
@ VOL 47 ON NOV 29, 2018

This presentation comprises a brief look at some of the projects Scott Cohen has been involved with since establishing his practice in 2001. Specific focus has been given to restaurants and bars. It is his wish to convey,  through photos and words, how he works with context and cultural undercurrents, to create unique places within the city. Modern architecture has the capacity and responsibility to expand its scope, and to learn multiple dialects, so that it may speak from a diversity of independent voices. By understanding how to manifest these idiosyncratic  desires into built form, we help create the pulsating beat of an inspired city.
