BUILDING TOGETHER @ SUMMER SCHOOL

July 7 – July 27, 2014

The goal of the Summer School is to design and build a public space ourselves. For this purpose, Jan Liesegang (raumlaborberlin), curator of the Summer School, has invited experts from the field of experimental building to be responsible for respective parts of the building programme and to construct them and develop them on location together with the participants of the Summer School. Furthermore, during this experimentally building process the themes of »participation in urban design« and the »future of communal living« will be addressed.

The Building Programme:

Events Hall

A small EVENTS HALL and public square are planned as a central communications area. During the entire duration of the festival and the subsequent building programme, and through the International Summer Course for New Music, daily discussions, presentations, dinners, concerts and film screenings on the theme of »communal living« will take place here. During the Summer School the hall will be host to communal dining, as well as speeches and workshops.

Café & Kitchen

The CAFÉ/KITCHEN will be a public meeting place for participants, residents and visitors. It is to be a hybrid of a café and a minimal kitchen in which large groups can be cooked for. During the Summer School, the Osthang will already become a treasured public space. Not only will there be audiences for the public events, but also a great many Darmstadters who will come by to learn more about what is going on, observe the building process, seek out conversation or simply to have a coffee.

Workshop House

The WORKSHOP HOUSE is situated a little away surrounded by trees. Many of the planned discourses are organised over several days as intense talks. It is thus important to create a quiet and concentrated atmosphere.

Bedrooms / Cabins

A place to spend the night involves a special sort of appropriation. The Osthang on Mathilde Heights is a highly interesting location in terms of urban history. Sleeping overnight in one of the BEDROOMS / CABINS designed especially for this location provides an interface for personal behaviour and experience. Guests become part of a temporary community. The bedrooms can be in a structure, freestanding cabins or even tree houses. The designers and students can test their own dwellings and receive immediate feedback on their work from the guests.
