The spring workshop of the Academy for Architectural Culture is dedicated to the development of designs for a redesign and reorientation of the "Japanisches Palais" in Dresden. The Japanisches Palais is the last large museum in Dresden that has not yet been renovated. Previously a rather introverted palace building, its opening to a future-relevant exhibition building is imminent. With its central location on the northern bank of the Elbe, in direct view of the Zwinger and the Semperoper, it is a significant building block in the important museum landscape of Dresden.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. h.c. HG Merz, founder and Managing Director of hg merz architects, opens the lecture series of this year's aac spring workshop "Japanisches Palais. The Art Cabinet as a Working Collection" on 21 March at 7 pm.

The lecture will be followed by a talk by Antonio Cruz, founder of Cruz y Ortiz Arquitectos (Seville), at 8 pm.
