German Landscape Architect To Speak On Concentration Camp Memorial

April 13, 2000 -- Stefan Tischer, landscape architect and recent winner of a design competition for a memorial at the World War II women’s concentration camp at Ravensbrück, Germany, will give a talk at the University of Virginia’s School of Architecture on Friday, April 21, at 12:30 p.m. in Campbell Hall, Room 153. The talk, "Memory Turns into Site," will focus on Tischer's design for the memorial at Ravensbrück and will also include a discussion of the new Jewish Museum designed by Daniel Liebeskind and the site of "Topographie des Terrors," both in Berlin.

Tischer is a principal partner in Burger + Tischer in Berlin. The firm’s work includes urban parks, campus master planning and urban design and has been widely published and exhibited in Europe. The Ravensbrück memorial project was one of several selected to represent Germany in the 1999 Venice Biennale.
