Project description online

The exhibition addresses new forms of living and places for the community in Berlin's outer city. It is part of the "Tokyo Research Project", a one-year teaching research project at the Chair of Design and Housing, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, and reflects topics formulated in preparation for a trip to Japan and the findings gained there. The working method is based on a close link between design and research, in which joint explorations, recollections and experiences as well as interpretations become the basis for individual but interconnected projects. At the centre of the exhibition are variously elaborated paper models that describe elements of the periphery as polygonal, rectangular and circular islands. The models stand at the beginning of the consideration of places and initially seem to reject a contextual design approach. They show landscape, infrastructure, settlement networks, self-contained areas such as the hospital sites by Ludwig Hoffmann (1852-1932) and open grounds into which both specific and prototypical designs are introduced. The exhibition shows artefacts from the designs for Berlin-Buch, Berlin-Pankow and Wünsdorf, including large-format drawings and models, collages and visualisations of interiors, which are in dialogue with photographic works by Andrew Alberts.
