Pavilion 10m2 City – A design-build project on the south campus of the Bauhaus University Weimar

A piece of town instead of a parking lot!

In a two-week workshop, 17 students from the bachelor's and master's courses in architecture and urban planning designed and built a test room for alternative uses of the campus site. By upcycling wood and canvas, a sustainable meeting place was created: it can be dismantled, reused and, thanks to the use of solar modules, it is self-sufficient in terms of energy supply. With a floor area of ​​ten square meters, this pavilion, called »Parklet«, fits exactly into a single parking space and thus gives the unused space a meaningful use – as an outdoor workspace, as a campus lounge or simply as a seat for the break.

Its architecture combines sustainable building and renewable energy, wood and high-tech, and the fun of building together. The pavilion is a workplace, sun deck, bar, recreation area, event location, stage... A piece of the city is created on 10m2 - and an idea of ​​how a parking lot can become a campus.

With »10m2 Stadt« we want to demonstrate the potential of the space wasted with parking spaces. At the same time, the project is a practical exercise in sustainable construction that combines recycled building materials with modern technology.
