Osthang campus: hall
The designers of Osthang events hall, Japanese Atelier Bow-Wow, do include the concept of ‘behaviorology’ in their artistic work. In their opinion, a deep understanding of the three elements – water, light, air – as well as a consolidated knowledge of the climate and human (resident) behaviour will lead to a stronger, locally embedded architecture.
This ‘localization’ is also and always the starting point for the drafts by ConstructLab, who are responsible for the events hall in co-operation with Atelier Bow-Wow. ConstructLab not only designs but also builds their designs, allowing their projects to be enriched by the unexpected opportunities that occur on site.
Structural engineer Mark Fahlbusch will introduce Bollinger+Grohmann’s own subjective, per se construction-oriented, viewpoints to this multidisciplinary exchange.
The Dinner Talk is in English and accessible to the public. Listening the Dinner Talks is free, but for a dinner please pay 10 € on the site.
Osthang dialogs as dinner talks: There will be five public presentation and debating evenings, where at each two of the architects collectives will present their ideas on experimental building, reflect on the architectural cultural heritage of the Mathildenhöhe and put their joint effort for the Osthang Project up for debate. The dialogs enable all the locals and anyone interested to actively take part in the Osthang Project building process. There will also be keynotes by architects and theorists on experimental building and the Mathildenhöhe artists’ colony.
