ACCESS Christmas Party 2011ACCESS Christmas Party 2011

Christmas is special – and although it is quite normal for us who live in this part of the world it may be something unknown for the students coming from other parts of the universe. The ACCESS students, who participate in the international master course Advanced Computational and Civil Engineering Structural Studies met for a Christmas Party last friday. The place is one with tradition: An old villa, built in 1888. A huge Christmas tree was placed in the courtyard, Stollen (a special Christmas Cake of the region) and tea was served, Christmas tunes playing…
Nearly a century ago the villa was a spiritual and cultural center of Dresden. The avant-garde of Dresden based artists met here, among them Paul Klee, Walter Gropius, Otto Dix, Conrad Felix Müller, Lasar Segall, Oskar Kokoschka, Emil Nolde and the dancers Mary Wigman and Gret Palucca. Now the villa is home of the Institute of Construction Materials – but it continues to be a friendly home for social events!
