Abstract

In erfolgreichen, guten Schulen werden Lehren und Lernen durch die bauliche Umgebung bestmöglich unterstützt – aus Schul- und Lernräumen sollten also Lebensräume werden. Um dies zu erreichen müssen erziehungswissenschaftliche, architekturpsychologische und architektonische Ansprüche in Einklang gebracht werden. Die AutorInnen nähern sich dem Thema der pädagogischen Schulraumgestaltung aus ihren jeweiligen Disziplinen und eröffnen Wege für eine optimalen Schul- und Klassenzimmergestaltung.; In successful, good schools, teaching and learning are best supported by the structural environment - school and learning spaces should therefore become living spaces. In order to achieve this, educational science, architectural psychology and architectural requirements must be brought into harmony. The authors approach the topic of pedagogical schoolroom design from their respective disciplines and open up ways for optimal school and classroom design.

Abstract

The Breslau arts scene during the Weimar period was one of the most vibrant in all of Germany, yet it has disappeared from memory and historiography. 'Beyond the Bauhaus' explores the polyvalent and contradictory nature of cultural production in Breslau in order to expand the cultural and geographic scope of Weimar history.

Abstract

Drawing Futures brings together international designers and artists for speculations in contemporary drawing for art and architecture. Despite numerous developments in technological manufacture and computational design that provide new grounds for designers, the act of drawing still plays a central role as a vehicle for speculation. There is a rich and long history of drawing tied to innovations in technology as well as to revolutions in our philosophical understanding of the world. Drawing Futures focuses on the discussion of how the field of drawing may expand synchronously alongside technological and computational developments. The book coincides with an international conference of the same name, taking place at The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL, in November 2016. Bringing together practitioners from many creative fields, the book discusses how drawing is changing in relation to new technologies for the production and dissemination of ideas.

Abstract

Fünf bedeutende Konvolute von Architekturzeichnungen und –reproduktionen aus den Beständen der Göttinger Universitätskunstsammlung und der Niedersächsischen Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen werden in der Ausstellung „Gilly – Weinbrenner – Schinkel“ erstmals gemeinsam gezeigt. Eine besondere Entdeckung bieten dabei Friedrich Gillys Entwürfe für ein Theater in Stettin: Es sind die frühesten überhaupt bekannten, überdies brillant in Szene gesetzten Zeichnungen des früh verstorbenen Lehrers von Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Weitere Einblicke in die Architektenpraxis um 1800 vermittelt eine Mappe mit Zeichnungen für ein Theater in Königsberg, die vermutlich Carl Ferdinand Langhans nach Entwürfen Gillys angefertigt hat. Von der Mittelalter-Faszination dieser Zeit zeugt Friedrich Fricks ebenfalls nach Vorlagen Gillys gedruckte Aquatinta-Serie „Schloss Marienburg in Preußen“. Für einen pragmatischen, aber nicht minder bemerkenswerten Umgang mit mittelalterlicher Bausubstanz stehen Friedrich Weinbrenners Entwürfe für den Umbau der Göttinger Paulinerkirche zur Universitätsbibliothek. Und schließlich belegen Karl Friedrich Schinkels druckgraphisch reproduzierten Entwürfe für einen Königspalast auf der Akropolis in Athen, wie lange man im 19. Jahrhundert an einer schöpferischen Erneuerung des griechischen Altertums arbeitete. Die im Katalog erfassten Zeichnungen und Drucke laden dazu ein, Umbrüche und Leitmotive in der Architekturdarstellung um und nach 1800 nachzuvollziehen. Fünf einleitende Aufsätze eröffnen zusätzliche Forschungsperspektiven. So wird die Möglichkeit geboten, Motive, Funktionen und Wirkungsweisen von Baukunst auf Papier zwischen Klassizismus und Gotikrezeption anhand besonders attraktiver Werke zu verfolgen.

Abstract

The concept of extraterritoriality designates certain relationships between space, law, and representation. This collection of essays explores contemporary manifestations of extraterritoriality and the diverse ways in which the concept has been put to use in various disciplines. Some of the essays were written especially for this volume; others are brought here together for the first time. The inquiry into extraterritoriality found in these essays is not confined to the established boundaries of political, conceptual, and representational territories or fields of knowledge; rather, it is an invitation to navigate the margins of the legal–juridical and the political, but also the edges of forms of representation and poetics. Within its accepted legal and political contexts, the concept of extraterritoriality has traditionally been applied to people and to spaces. In the first case, extraterritorial arrangements could either exclude or exempt an individual or a group of people from the territorial jurisdiction in which they were physically located; in the second, such arrangements could exempt or exclude a space from the territorial jurisdiction by which it was surrounded. The special status accorded to people and spaces had political, economic, and juridical implications, ranging from immunity and various privileges to extreme disadvantages. In both cases, a person or a space physically included within a certain territory was removed from the usual system of laws and subjected to another. In other words, the extraterritorial person or space was held at what could be described as a legal distance. (In this respect, the concept of extraterritoriality presupposes the existence of several competing or overlapping legal systems.) It is this notion of being held at a legal distance around which the concept of extraterritoriality may be understood as revolving. This volume is a part of Amir and Sela’s Exterritory Project, an ongoing art project that wishes to encourage both the theoretical and practical exploration of ideas concerning extraterritoriality in an interdisciplinary context. The project aims not only to draw on existing definitions of extraterritoriality but seeks also to charge it with new meanings, searching for ways in which the notion of extraterritoriality could produce a critique of discriminating power structures and re-articulate new practical, conceptual, and poetical possibilities.

Abstract

From consumer products to architecture to advertising to digital technology, design is an undeniably global phenomenon. Yet despite their professed transnational perspective, historical studies of design have all too often succumbed to a bias toward Western, industrialized nations. This diverse but rigorously curated collection recalibrates our understanding of design history, reassessing regional and national cultures while situating them within an international context. Here, contributors from five continents offer nuanced studies that range from South Africa to the Czech Republic, all the while sensitive to the complexities of local variation and the role of nation-states in identity construction.

Abstract

Qu’est-ce qu’un corps? Ce livre s’attache d’avantage à se poser cette question qu’à y répondre. L’ouvrage propose de complexifier quelques lieux communs à diverses échelles de proximité de cet assemblage matériel qu’est le corps. Ceci permet d’intégrer pleinement les objets, atmosphères et autres corps environnant celui-ci afin de proposer une lecture politique de leurs relations volontaires et fortuites. Du sweatshirt à capuche porté par Trayvon Martin lorsqu’il se fit tuer dans la banlieue de Miami Gardens, Florida, aux rues new-yorkaises durant Occupy Wall Street, en passant par le mur d’apartheid en Palestine, ce livre progresse par une succession d’exemples illustrant l’hypothèse selon laquelle les corps et les objets de toutes tailles entretiennent nécessairement des rapports politiques entre eux. What is a body? This book is more attached to raising the question than in offering a definitive answer. Instead, Lambert proposes to make more complex certain commonplaces located at various degrees of proximity to the body’s material assemblage, allowing a better integration of the surrounding objects, atmosphere and other bodies and proposing a political reading of their relationship to the body, whether deliberate or accidental. From the hoodie that Trayvon Martin wore when he was killed in the suburbs of Miami Gardens, Florida, to the streets of New York City during Occupy Wall Street and the apartheid wall in Palestine, this book moves through a series of episodes that illustrate how bodies and objects of all sizes are enmeshed in deeply entangled political relationships.

Abstract

Buildings are neither conceived nor realized by architects in a vacuum; the architect forms part of a larger team of builders, craftsmen, engineers and other experts who join forces to bring together their diverse fields of knowledge.This book describes the design and development of the building process for the wings at the Yitzhak Rabin Centre in Tel Aviv, and demonstrates how collaborative building, technical design and development can lead in an integrated and innovative, but risky process to an extreme innovation, an Octatube ‘Moonshot’. The challenge posed by the Rabin Centre wings was to develop an entirely novel technology for constructing free form shells. It is necessary for many disciplines to collaborate in such a process, and these must be coordinated throughout the entire process, including all of its unforeseen and experimental stages. The results of the process then have to be integrated into one technical artifact that satisfies all requirements and delivers effective answers or compromises in all of its life phases, be that conceptual design, material design, detail design, engineering, production, assembly, installation, loading behavior, functional use as a building, meaning of the building as an artifact (even as architecture) and, in both its local and global context, in its meaning as an integral part of the building.

Abstract

Industrialized housing has been a common phenomenon in the building industry since the industrial revolution; the casting of iron components enabled Victorian iron casters to prefabricate entire buildings and to export them to all British colonies. It got a second boost from Modernist architects like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius and Konrad Wachsmann; and a third boost in the US when the soldiers came back from the Second World War in 1945 and wanted to buy a ready-made house. In the later decades of the 20th century composite prototypes were built. Timber frame houses are extremely popular in low density areas worldwide. For densely populated areas housing is now firmly attached to reinforced concrete. The contracting industries have developed efficient building methods for the concrete structures on which separate systems of claddings are fixed to form a house.However, in the coming decades, designers, builders and scientists also have to keep the environment in mind, working with a minimal amount of materials, and for minimizing embodied energy and energy use. In the coming age minimal embodied energy and low ecological footprints are renewed values that will be added to energy-positive housing and that will have an influence on the building technology of the future. This will lead to a reformation of the building vocabulary. Other materials will have to be chosen and developed to function in building elements and components.
