Project description

Are there affirmable days or places in our deteriorating world? Are there scenes in life, right now, for which we might conceivably be thankful? Is there a basis for joy or serenity, even if felt only occasionally? Are there grounds now and then for an unironic smile?
Robert Adams, The Place We Live, 1966-2013

During summer semester 2020, the Chair of Design and Housing at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar offered a structured and equally open design studio with selected references as starting points. The studio in particular was based on an immediate dialogue with the students and their interests. Thus, it was possible to follow the thematic and methodic suggestions made by the Chair, to develop and complement them, while working on individual topics. As usual, there were regular, mandatory colloquia alongside the individual consultations and discussions in small groups, as well as various opportunities for communication in a virtual studio. The design studio comprised larger research parts
and was conducted in cooperation with the Chair of Theory and History of Modern Architecture which offered a related seminar. It was particularly conceived for students who are interested in the relationship between design and theory in the wider context of housing, and who wish to explore this in their own work.
