Transcurricular elective. Building a Proposition for Future Activities: Architecture

Posted on Okt 1, 2017 in / Serial IFIT


The active players in the project Building a Proposition for Future Activities selected five architectural practices that approach architecture not merely as a functional response to an urbanized society’s needs, but as an activity of proposing, organising and representing how people might live together in the future. ConstructLab (Berlin), In Situ (Basel), bromsky Architekten (Berlin/Hamburg), Assemble (London) and Atelier Bow Wow (Tokyo) have each run a project office for the architecture workshop from September 11th to September 16th, 2017.
A jury comprised of key actors in the past, present and future of the project will give their recommendation for implementation on October 5th. We invite all interested students to see the exhibition of all submitted review in the HCU gallery. This exhibition will also function as the kick-off date for the translation of the winning proposal into its approval planning phase.
For this phase the research and teaching programme Urban Design will organise a project office comprised of members of the industrial school students (construction draftsmen), international students from the field of architecture and refugees and neighbours with experience and pertinent skills in the approval planning process. The project office will collaborate closely with Fördern & Wohnen (the property owners of CBP43), the construction approval and inspection department at the district office Wandsbek, the local Quartiersmanagement, the Behörde für Arbeit, Soziales, Familie (BASFI) und Integration and other pertinent project partners.

Students are enabled to deepen their competencies in diagrammatic modes of architectural production and urban design in collaboration with project partners and get a first-hand account of pertinent know-how and know-why of implementation planning.

The seminar deals with the implementation planning of the results of the cooperative review process Building a Proposition for Future Activities.
