Remarque

Berlin Building Academy.

Summary

The atelier will examine the programmatic and spatial organization of the Bauakademie in Berlin. The analysis, the knowledge of adequate typologies and the comprehensive investigation of the former Schinkel-Building will help us to work with the building structure and its programmatic demands.

Content

Schinkel's Bauakademie is one of the architect's masterpieces and an important part of classical architecture of Berlin. With the planning of a new academy building as an architectural school and exhibition centre we want both to continue the tradition and take into account the chance for renewal and innovation. Here it is important to find a synthesis of successive constructive systems, without falling into copy. It should also be created a relation between extreme functional purpose, historical quotation and poetical refinement. The new design of the building of the Bauakademie has to complement the adjacent urban renewal projects in Berlin Mitte. 

 

A field trip will take place in Berlin. (7.10-11.10.2016) The students will visit the site. The trip will focus on the work of K. F. Schinkel. The associated costs will amount to 300CHF.

 

While the project during the autumn semester will deal with the complexity and program for an educational institution at an urban scale, we will transfer the same issues to a small art-school-studio as a testing ground during the second semester, which will result in a built 1:1 project.

Keywords

tradition and modernity, location and context, typology and adaption, large scale and small scale, material and atmosphere, object and ensemble.
