Planet B - Semester Presentation
In Search of Tomorrow's (Housing Design) Culture
Dusseldorf

Megatrends that are already emerging today will alter the cultural practices related to housing. Architecture will have to adapt itself to evolving needs, values and priorities. The decentralisation of life in the course of increasing mobility, cooperative living ("sharing economy"), the flexibilisation of living space (adaptable zones), new and intelligent technologies and nature ("green"), as a part of architecture, constitute new parameters for the development of buildings and cities. Can we derive ideas for future housing design from these trends that are already discernible? As planners, are we able to influence these trends - in the sense of a relevant contribution to the (housing design) culture of the future? The visions developed by students from the class of prof. Barbara Holzer and prof. Tanja Kullack on the topic of "Leben im Morgen" ["Living Tomorrow"], will be presented, at the exhibition, on 8th July 2016 between 9.30am and 6pm.

The exhibition’s theme may seem far-fetched for a natural history museum. More than a natural phenomena, the idea of Apocalypse is a cultural concept. However, environmental damage has become a real threat today. But doesn’t show history as well that natural and man-made disasters have always fuelled innovation? Scientific and cultural perspectives are interweaved in the exhibition.

"Apocalypse. End Without End" is shown from November 10, 2017 (planned running time five years).

Ready to Share!
who must. who may. who can.
Dusseldorf

The intervention by participants of the studio "Scenic Spaces" of PBSA I HSD in cooperation with #ADA aims at challenging economic growth and private consumption — and at offering alternatives. Will we have to do with less in the future, and how can we free 'less' from connotations such as failure or setback? How can we achieve sufficiency? How can buzz word sharing economy contribute to more fairness in society? And who is provided that what actually "ready to share"?

Interior design students from University of Applied Sciences in Dusseldorf have done research on sharing in their immediate environment by talking to people in the streets in different areas of Cologne. These interviews have resulted in an intervention at the NRW-Forum, whose visitors are invited to participate. A public discussion will be held on April 6, 2018.

War is for Men — Peace is for Women?

The installation "targeted interventions" conquers the museum’s yard for the time of the exhibition: Contemporary artists present their positions regarding the interplay of violence and gender.

The exhibition is shown from April 27 to October 30, 2018.

Project
Construction Start Lindower Strasse

At the project site in Lindower Strasse, designed collaboratively with zweikant architekturen from Cologne, construction has been launched. The existing yards in Berlin district Wedding are expanded by further residential and commercial spaces: A 7-storey, tower-like annex completes the empty lot between the existing building and adjacent site; the annex complements spatially the added storey that sits on top of the existing structure in a pavilion-like manner.

The new buildings are designed as hybrid constructions. Basement, ground floor and staircase are made from ferroconcrete; the upper floors and the added storey are created from ready-made wooden elements. The plain cubage of the new construction catches the eye with its coloured, exposed wooden facade and large window frames. The new parts relate to the existing forms as well as that they present a visibly distinct addition.

1st Prize in the Competition Old Fishing Port Cuxhaven

The suggested urban development of Cuxhaven’s Old Fishing Port (Alter Fischereihafen), which was designed in collaboration with landscape architect Atelier Loidl, has found critical acclaim: The vision of a new port area has won 1st prize. The competition has produced a further winner.

The goal of the urban design is presenting a frame that can flexibly adjust to future changes, but is also sufficiently clear-cut to ensure a specific development of the port area.

The design is focussed on maintaining and strengthening Cuxhaven’s port atmosphere by combining the old and the new. Existing structures are to be kept alongside newly built architecture. Their coexistence will provide an up-to-date backdrop for local daily live as well as widely traveled visitors.
