Topic of the Workshop

The workshop “Spatial Strategies” aims to investigate selected artistic, urban and architectural topics with a local, but superordinate European relevance like transformation of modern heritage or industrial sites out of function. It is one of 11 workshops of each two-year cycle of the European Master’s programme at TTÜ with Reiseuni_lab, taking place once each year during two weeks. The workshops are conceptionalized as cumulative research practice. (DJ, General Workshop Outlines)
The international, postgraduate students of the Reiseuni_lab [Class-04, 2016-2018] arrive from Haifa, NB School of Architecture and Design (workshop 5) to Bauhaus Dessau (Workshop 6) to investigate spatial, urban concepts in the context of the visible and intangible modern heritage of Dessau.

The tracing of the historical, partly destroyed representations and related sites of the Bauhaus period until 1933 will be connected in a “Public Space Exhibition” to bridge the modern architecture, historical designs, performances and concepts of the Bauhaus interventions to the new buildings like the Museum 2019, activities of the city and the contemporary artistic projects of the Bauhaus foundation nowadays. During two weeks, the international group of students will deepen a concept what has been developed of the international Reiseuni_Class-03, 2016: An urban network of interventions for knowledge transfer revealing the modern heritage in Dessau.

“With its annual theme Substance, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation focuses on the dialogue between substance and design: on the substance of ideas, on substance as topic and material, on substantial forms, on the preservation of substance and on the substance of the Bauhaus as an institution.” (Dr. Claudia Perren, Bauhaus Programme 2017).
The six pathway concepts – Theatre, Massproduction, Industries, Design stages, Masters and Bauhäusler – create the basis for an exhibition proposal. The concept finding will take place in dialogue with material approaches of the Bauhäusler during the Dessau period of the 20th. The investigation of the modern traces leads to heterogeneous and trans medial proposals of knowledge transfer in the public realm – a network of exhibition pathways as a public space choreography. The results will be presented and finally discussed with the team of the foundation and international guests.
“Perception is directed towards meaning. Attributions of meaning refer back to already learned processes of identification and socially accepted categories. Interpretive perceptions of design contexts simultaneously represent an engagement with and actualization of existing historical and contemporary patterns of meaning.” [D. Jäger, Reiseuni Report Vol:II.3.3 Associative Reading of Traces and Reflective Accumulation of Knowledge]

Topic of the Workshop

The workshop “Spatial Strategies” aims to investigate selected artistic, urban and architectural topics with a local, but superordinate European relevance like transformation of modern heritage or industrial sites out of function, qualifying of urban waterfronts and inner-urban borders, peripheries and infrastructures. (DJ, General Workshop Outlines)
“Traditionally, movement means change, emergence and progress. 2016, the annual programme of the Bauhaus foundation focus on the phenomenon “Movement at Bauhaus”, starting from the historical position towards the contemporary and future relevance.” (Dr. Claudia Perren, Bauhaus Programm 2016).
The international, postgraduate students of the Reiseuni_lab arrive from Israel to Dessau to investigate spatial, urban concepts of “Vision (perceiving, learning) in Motion” during two weeks.
The workshop aim is the conceptualization of an “urban & spatial network of interventions for knowledge transfer” with 3 main gaols: First, to trace the historical biographies of the existing representations and related sites of the Bauhaus period until 1933 in a contextual typology of a “public realm exhibition”; second, to connect the historical ‘network’ with the new buildings and artistic projects related to the Bauhaus like the Museum 2019, and third, to relate the pioneer buildings of the historical period with the international impact of the modern movement, spatial positions and reform concepts in architecture and workshop experiment.
Individual investigations and perceptions create the basis for development of a network proposal as a team during the first week. The investigation of six selected sites within the spatial network leads to heterogeneous and trans medial proposals of knowledge transfer in the public realm – an exhibition pathway as a public space choreography, with multiple interventions. The results will be presented and finally discussed with local stakeholders of the city & the foundation.

Key Context

Bauhaus Period of Weimar/Dessau 1919-33, biography of sites and buildings
Genius Loci: Town, movement, building contexts
Important architects and international reference projects related to the Bauhaus period
Hermeneutic Strategies: Tracing as concept of urban knowledge transfer

“Spatial Strategies” – four-stage-process

[1] Creative analysis, lectures, site visits & case studies (Individual work)
[2] Collage-Relief including story board; strategy: Mapping, sketches, tracing, photographs
[3] “Workshop in the workshop” - spatial qualities of 6 selected sites, with Rhys Martin
[4] 3D Concepts for six sites. Resulting in individual working mock-ups

Class-02: Workshop 5 - at Kiel [KEL] 07.06.2012 - 19.07.2012

at Muthesius Kunsthochschule Kiel

Programme:
‚Beschriebene Räume‘
"Described Spaces"
1
In literature, there is an infinite number of examples of descriptions of rooms, locations, places, in short descriptions of "space". They are seldom described analytically, but almost always atmospherically.
For example, the texts of a story contain concrete statements about the house, the loft or attic room, the stairs, the windows, the beams etc., which produce conceptional images. By translating or transferring such textual descriptions into architecture, into “space”, primarily no aesthetic context is followed. Means are sought in order to create spatial effect; patterns are combined; an event structure is developed via which a verification of the story may be expected.
Assignment of Tasks
1st Task
In a fictional or lyrical work, find a text passage in which spatial situations/ rooms are described.
Analyse the text as follows:
Is the description written in such a way as to perceive a space/room in its entirety? Are only parts of the space/room described? Does the description allow conclusions to be drawn about the whole space/room (size, proportion, atmosphere)? Is the space/room geometrically defined (length, width, height) or is a tension or atmosphere created? In which situation does the protagonist find him-/herself? Is the characterisation of the protagonist’s situation supported by the spatial description? (Is e.g. the fear of the protagonist supported by spatial situations which create fear?)
2nd Task
Present the essence of your analysis as a drawing or sketch (draw only that which the text can express - even if the sketch must remain fragmented). Interpret your translation of the text passage in a few words.
3rd Task
Now sketch the room/spatial representation which was formed in your imagination while reading the text. In a few words, try to name the associations and/or your intentions . See yourself as a stage designer or scenographer/set designer in a film team which design scenes. This concerns the correlation/relationship between an idea and its translation to a spatial situation. The text passage you have chosen is virtually the assignment for the design of the space/room.
The Objective
4th Task
Create and design this space/room. The following forms of interpretation are available:

  • model scale 1:1
  • installation uses elements of the space of the Lessing-bath
  • walk-in stage
  • diorama
  • perspective-box#
  • movie

Workshop and project announcement
m3  - Architecture meets Sound, Body & Moving Image

Project leaders
Prof. Rhys Martin (Choreography & Dance)
Prof. Daniel Ott (Music & Composition)
Prof. Anna Anders (Moving Image)
WM Stephanie Schwarz (Dramatics, Coordination)

Project description
Students from the Berlin University of the Arts and from the international postgraduate study program Architektur.Studium.Generale (ASG) based at the Brandenburgischen Technischen Universität Cottbus will engage in an exploratory investigation of the relationship between body, sound, moving image and space. Through artistic demographic research urban interventions will be developed in the Berlin district Wedding.
In January 2 till 6, 2012, the program commences with a weeklong tuning workshop. Participants will be daily divided into alternating teams through which they will be invited to respond to tasks and exercises drawn from dance, sound and moving image in order to investigate innovative transdisciplinary approaches to notions of architectural space.
The workshop takes place in the context of the UDK transdisciplinary project week Kollisionen under the direction of the department of Design. Results of all workshops will be shown in a university based open presentation on Friday January 6, 2012.
The m3 project will continue until February with production teams identified in the workshop and who will conceive, develop and implement a joint collaborative project over the following month.
During this phase, individual teams will be allotted to each of the three project leaders, who, in weekly meetings, will discuss and offer advice on questions of content and project development.
Individual mentoring will be possible on request. Participants will be able consult up to two of the project leaders.
Completed projects will be presented discussed and evaluated in the sixth calendar week.
