Topic

    Design with social responsibility and the development of creative, practical and professional skills through making.

      Target group

      This DesignBuild Studio is aimed at students who want to gain social, creative and practical knowledge through making.

      This course is suitable for students of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Design, Engineering, Sociology and others 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 overall learning objective of this course is the education of highly aware decision-makers who are conscious about the urgent need to take responsibility in constructing balanced social, cultural and ecological living environments.

        This includes the following learning goals:

        ·         Decision-making under time pressure

        ·         Development of high quality design and performance with a small budget and restricted time

        ·         Participatory processes with users

        ·         Skills in craftsmanship

        Course Components

        The participants will 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

        ·         Site visits

        ·         On-site workshops

        ·         Presentations with clients and users

        ·         Design/build studio

        ·         Interdisciplinary critics

        The DesignBuild Studio will be based at the University. Public transportation will be used for the site visits and construction works.

        Short Description

        This summer school will be working for and with the Sharehouse Refugio in berlin. This is a community living project where refugees, students, artists and others live and work together. This community will be our clients for this DesignBuild project. The clients will actively participate in the project from the design phase to on-site construction. Through designing and building together, the students will get insights into the challenges that the people they are designing for are facing.

        sharehaus.net/refugio/

        The task is to design and build new outdoor social gathering areas for the Refugio Café. Existing wooden elements will be incorporated into the design.

        The Design-Build -Studio focusses on the realisation of this small building project from the initial design to the process of building by the students themselves. The challenge is to integrate “Low-Cost“, and “High Efficiency“ requirements with sustainability considerations, cultural acceptance issues, aesthetics, appropriateness, participation and education.

        This project will be run similar to the Summer University project "Panke Platz" that took place in 2016 (more information: www.dbxchange.eu/).

        Prerequisites

        The willingness to work in a team is a precondition.
