SEMINAR SOSE 24 TO BUILD OR NOT TO BUILD

To build or not to build: Architectural Innovations for Summer Spaces
SOMMErSEMESTER 2024
HOCHBAU 1 / DESIGN STUDI 1 + PIV 
During the course „To build or not to build: Architectural Innovations for Summer Spaces“, we‘ll focus on designing temporary spaces for communities in warm months. Considering closed city theaters and operas, we‘ll explore creating new pavilions or rela- ted facilities.
We will also explore creative ways to use existing spaces, reducing the use of materials.
Visiting diverse event venues, we‘ll analyze intersections of art, theater, urbanism, and architecture. Examining various architec- tural typologies like pavilions, temporary architectures, temporary theaters, artistic and performative installations, urban furniture, laboratories, urban interventions and activators, play areas, par- ticipatory buildings, devices for collective space utilization, creati- ve workshops, creation spaces, temporary clubs, as well as other social spaces and boundary architectures, students will engage in readings and diagrams, applying what they learn in real locations to establish their own design objectives. We‘ll also explore archives for sustainable material reuse and learn about obtaining permits for future projects, such as a Design Build course next year.
Acknowledging Western knowledge systems‘ influence and colonial legacies‘ threat to cultural landscapes, we‘ll delve into the dynamics challenging traditional architectural stability and property concepts amidst cri- ses and conflicts. Throughout, we‘ll examine impacts on gathering, performing, exhibiting, and participating spaces.
