From the 7th to the 11th of May 2019, architecture students of the TU Berlin (Habitat Unit) will explore and examine the surroundings of the south-Oderbruch by bicycle. Starting point will be Golzow, and the team and the students will analyse also the villages of Manschnow, Gorgast, Küstrin-Kietz, and Rathstock. The aim is to compare the architecture and town planning of the various villages. To this end, the morphologies will be analysed, the historical developments will be registered on plans, and the structures and typologies of residential areas will be mapped.
Every day, starting from 6pm, the students will talk and discuss with the inhabitants about their observations and ideas. Meeting point: Gut Gorgast.
The excursion is part of the Bachelor Design Studio of the Habitat Unit of the TU Berlin: the students will spend five days researching on site, and will continue to work with the collected materials in Berlin. In the course of the semester, students’ design projects will be developed from the analysis’ results.
The Workshop and the Bachelor Design Studio take place in cooperation with the community of Golzow and the Film Museum in Golzow.
The supervisors are Áine Ryan and Vittoria Capresi.
