TU Berlin Summer & Winter University
Campus 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. [+]

Best Part time Course Studies in Arts 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.

Best Part time Course Studies in Arts in Germany. found both in the cultural studies in research and in the design sciences, the "Knowledge in / Knowledge in the making" increasingly interested. The exteriority of thought is observed in their dynamic development and the remuneration of thinking and doing as well as the role of artifacts involved to be reassessed. This development meets the tasks of structuring knowledge work in organizations that is increasingly seen as a design object. Design Thinking Here, a charting thought, currently called "Design Thinking" has proven economy. Thus there are two good reasons to re-consider the knowledge-forming functions of the design: On the one hand it is necessary to determine the knowledge in design clearer so that self-understanding of the discipline to improve and to connect with technical cultivation research. On the other hand, the functions of the design for the knowledge processes are working out of third parties to meet the demanding tasks of future knowledge design requirements. Both areas of responsibility are increasingly recognizing a diversity of thinking and working styles, design and modes of knowledge, knowledge and representation types (cognitive diversity). The design can use this base to reposition itself in the design of action and imaginative spaces of knowledge work (enabling spaces). It is the integrated design of knowledge, media and space as cognitive design, profound innovation (radical innovation) allows. The under the impact of emerging digital media early formulated concept of "knowledge designs" (Bolz 1993) learns as an update and clarification. The cognitive dwelling - Design, Computers and Cognition Among the methods of knowledge designs include the design specific model thinking that connects to cybernetics, systems theory and cognitive sciences. The subject of a so-understood design is cognitive habitation which includes social processes, media representations, technical systems and physical spaces. Thus (Winograd, Mitchell, Gero) is connected to the international discussion on design, Computers and Cognition. However, the German version of the knowledge Designs wins a particular strength through their connection with the local media studies, especially in its manifestation as a cultural technique (Siegert). Matters of concern Another research topic is the "question of the thing" (Heidegger), particularly in the expression as actor-network theory (Latour). This is based on chains of action hybrid actants which questions a "Dingpolitik". Designer as specialists for things and interactions have participated little in these discussions, but can make a substantial contribution to the future shape of "matters of concern" (Latour). [-]

Best Part time Course Studies in Arts in Germany. In Klanglabor the KHM is a project-oriented sound practice combines with current sound discourses in the form of seminars, lectures, practical exercises or work presentations. As interdisciplinary and modular organized place the sound laboratory provides both space for the development of artistic projects sound as well as for workshops on instrument making, musical production techniques or media archaeological topics. The range of seminars offered includes sound synthesis method in hardware and software (programming), the use of sensors, interface and app development, Radio Arts / Ars Acustica, Field Recording / soundscape composition, text-sound composition / Poetry Sonore, and theoretical reflection of auditory culture and music and art history. In addition, the sound lab offers with the annual basic seminar sound an introduction to the various themes for interested students that do not yet have little or no experience in dealing with sound. Moreover, curates and organizes the sound lab in the auditorium of the KHM the concert series "Nocturnes" that presents outstanding and exceptional artistic positions between music, sound art and lecture-performance in three events per semester.

A new interdisciplinary field of design, researching the transformations of architectural, urban/regional space of the emerging "information age", explores the dynamic interaction of architecture/urbanism and the space of mass media and communication networks. It develops scenarios for the interplay of public urban and public media space. [+]

A new interdisciplinary field of design, researching the transformations of architectural, urban/regional space of the emerging "information age", explores the dynamic interaction of architecture/urbanism and the space of mass media and communication networks. It develops scenarios for the interplay of public urban and public media space. The products of these alliances of urban/regional and media networks, of architectural and media space, are bastards: ambivalent spaces that are at the same time analog and digital, tactile and abstract, material and immaterial, expanding hyper-sensuality in the time- and placelessness of media flows. These hybrid spatial morphs act simultaneously in urban (local) and media (global) space and mediate between them, unfolding the undefined space between the local and the global, occupying the vacuum between local place and global space. Within the inversions of identity (communication), within the fluid ever-changing densities in the knitted networks, fused analogue/digital cultures are idensified. [-]

Best Part time Course Studies in Arts in Germany. The Experimental computer science at the KHM asks for the basic requirements and possibilities of today's design and manufacturing. In particular, the role of information processes and their interaction will be investigated with material processes. Where do they occur at all information and algorithms, as they are produced, communicated, processed and integrated into planning and manufacturing processes? How does human reason and perception with physical materials and how they are mediated by semiotic processes? In short, the way in which they are mutually dependent reason and artifact and what role do the characters? The fact that so far no general science of artifacts exist, the so the "know-how" that go beyond mere questions of making, is regarded as one of the main reasons that our company has never really mastered the art intellectually. Not the technical "know-how" is therefore at the center of our thinking and experimental approach, but reflect on the conditions of the possibility producing action and the question under what stipulations we want to develop our resulting technologies at all and operate? Access to this complex issue is basically experimentally. With the help of artifacts, small structures and process-oriented installations field Poietischer actions is artistic and practically investigated and critically. [-]

Animation is seen as an evolving concept to evolving art form, required by the handwerkliches- and design skills as well as have the will to experiment and artistic venture. Each image form that involves movement, can be treated here. This includes all forms and materials of the visual arts, and its relation with other artistic disciplines such as theater or dance. Also a link to 3D animation is seen. Content and form are developed in parallel: from traditional narrative forms and documentary to pure abstraction, from the teleplay for performance. The presentation will be included in the design process. The sole production of canvas or screen is no longer selbverständlich. Even before this, the projects of the students were wide-ranging in terms of material and content. There were stories told, implemented in traditional character or stop-motion film, documentaries, 2D computer animation, abstract works, and lately increasingly installations. [-]
