TU Berlin Summer & Winter University
Campus Full time July 2017 Germany Berlin

This DesignBuild Summer Studio focusses on the realisation of a small building project from the initial design to the process of building by the students themselves. This will be carried out in an academic environment, engaging in interdisciplinary collaboration between students of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Civil Engineering and other related fields. [+]

Course Studies in Arts in Berlin in Germany. Summer University block 3: July 24th - August 17th, 2017 Course price: 1.850 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Target group This DesignBuild Studio is aimed at students who want to gain creative and practical knowledge through making. This course is suitable for students of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Engineering and other related fields who are willing to leave the boundaries of their desks, and conquer real life scenarios. Skills in building crafts are of an advantage but not essential. Learning Goal/Output The participants will develop their creative, practical and professional skills through creative experimentation and the process of making. Course Components Firstly, creative experimentation in the form of site responsive land art and/or installations will enable the students to explore the spatial qualities of the site. The participants will then develop an idea from the design stage to the built project. An examination of the context and discussions with the clients and users will form the basis for the final design. In a competitive design workshop, the best and most feasible solution(s) will be selected and developed. In collaboration with the users and under the guidance of a craftsman, the design will be built and inaugurated. The course will include the following components: Lectures / seminars Berlin excursions Creative and practical workshops On site photography, installations and/or land art 3d design / model making Design/build studio Interdisciplinary critics Equipment: - Styrofoam cutter, 3D printer, carpentry workshop Budget: - we have a small budget for materials The DesignBuild Studio will be based at the University, transportation will be organised for the 5-8 days of site visits and construction works. Short Description This DesignBuild Summer Studio focusses on the realisation of a small building project from the initial design to the process of building by the students themselves. This will be carried out in an academic environment, engaging in interdisciplinary collaboration between students of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Civil Engineering and other related fields. The suggested site is Scharfenberg Island, a small island in the northwest of Berlin which is only accessible via a small ferry or rowing boats. Scharfenberg is the home to a school with ca. 450 pupils, the school farm and ca. 9 residents. The idyllic island environment is the perfect location for creative thinking and making. The project will focus on the design of outdoor spaces for learning, celebration, retreat and contemplation. The location will be confirmed towards the end of 2016. The students will firstly explore the spatial qualities of the site through creative experimentation in the form of photography, site responsive land art and/or installations. They will then develop an idea from the design stage to the built project. An examination of the context and discussions with the clients and users will form the basis for the final design. In a competitive design workshop, the best and most feasible solution(s) will be selected and developed. In collaboration with the users and under the guidance of a craftsman, the design will be built and inaugurated. The challenge will be integrate "low-cost" and "high efficiency" requirements with considerations for sustainability, aesthetics, appropriateness, participation and education. Besides the enormous gains in professional knowledge our goal is to make students more sensitive to the ecological, social and cultural implications of their work. In order to profit from the high potential of these small-scale projects the focus has to be placed on the quality of the space that is created. Design decisions and implementation therefore needs to be made precisely and carefully. This project will be run similar to the Summer University project "Panke Platz" that took place in 2016 Prerequisites The willingness to work in a team is a precondition. The general prerequisites of the TU Berlin Summer University are at least one year of university experience and English level B2 or equivalent.
