Reiseuni Report – Making of: Vol:I, III, IV.

Image
How do we define new aims for a generalist architectural research and study programme? To generate design knowledge and site-specific solutions in a glocal mind-set? And instead of disregarding cultural differences, how might we profit from the rich and diverse university landscape of Europe?

More than 40 authors from three generations and 14 universities offer an open-access online publication in four volumes about the cooperative Master's Programme and European Architecture Dialogue which includes insights from theory and practice.

BAKPAK is a team of architects founded in 2013 by José de la Peña Gómez Millán, José M González Chamorro, Borja Navarro Ibáñez de Aldecoa, José A Pavón González, and Myriam Rego Gómez. Bakpak is a team and a method...  is a way to approach architecture: architecture unfolded. This unfolding is part of the polyhydral understanding of architecture which is not understood as the linear and consecutive resolution of problems, but as a global analysis of every possible conditioning factor. In three years of cooperative life, they won competitions in China, Ecuador, España, Polonia and Germany and their projects have been published international magazines and webs of architecture.

European Architecture Dialogue #11 Lisbon | 2016
Design Reflection-2 Four partner universities and institutions from Tallinn, Haifa, Dessau and Lisbon debate the research results of the international master programme of European Architecture together with students and alumni.
The Master’s Programme is a unique approach to international architectural education. It combines the idea of the classic educational journey abroad with the intensive, interdisciplinary and project-oriented workshop tradition. The training is structured around a series of eight project workshops on topics that elaborate and reflect architectural knowledge across greater Europe. Between September 2015 and December 2016, 9 workshops took place at the partner universities of Tallinn University of Technology (responsible), Ljubljana Faculty of Architecture, Haifa NB School of Design, Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, Innsbruck University and Lisbon Faculty of Architecture (double degree partner) with the 3rd class of the R…

Adorno, Negative Dialektik. 1966). Experts of architecture, sociology, art history, communication theory, politics and urban design will discuss experiences and contemporary concepts about young or political built heritage of the 19th and 20th century as part of an interdisciplinary European Dialogue.

The two-year training is structured around a series of 8 project workshops + 3 reflective workshops at 6 different higher education institutions: Urban planning as well as architectural and artistic issues – open questions virulent to the cities & regions of the participating universities – will be examined at all scales; multi-dimensional planning processes, design and communication strategies constitute integral parts of a democratic culture of building to transform existing buildings and urban quarters with regard to ecological sustainability. Problems will be resolved in the context of cultural heritage and pre-existing structures.

Since 2008, the Reiseuni_Lab debates virulent architecture and urban topics of ten different cities in South, Central and North East Europe to exchange teaching and research approaches in the tradition of Humboldt's ideas towards university as laboratory for the civil society.

>>>Reiseuni Report | Making Of: European Architecture Dialogue
[CBU] [TLL] [LIS] [WRO] [INN] [SVQ] [TLV] [BER] [MRS] [KEL]
Architectural education and the responsibility of the university in Europe need adjustment after the tendency toward specialization and equalization in recent decades and following the Bologna Process agreements. Our plural and democratic ideal of research-integrated education in the tradition of Wilhelm von Humbolt raises both challenges and chances. Important questions have to be answered: How do we generate architectural knowledge and work on site specific solutions in a glocal (global and local) mindset, together with students, professors and experts?

EAD#3 Kiel 2012 | Reflection 1
Five universities from Germany, Estland, France and Portugal debate the research results of the international master programme Architektur.Studium.Generale.
The Master’s Programme
is a unique and innovative approach to international architectural education. It combines the idea of the classic educational journey abroad with the intensive, interdisciplinary and project-oriented workshop tradition. The training is structured around a series of eight project workshops on topics that reflect architectural knowledge across greater Europe.
Design Reflection
The programme is framed by three design theoretical, empirical-reflexive elements. The design methods seminar at the start of the 2 year programme as well as the interim reflection 1 and 2 serve to catalogue design strategies and positions in order to develop an empirical self-reflected knowhow upon the rich context of the intercultural discourse.
