For the Bauhauslers, movement was essential for creativity. The Open Workshop takes up this idea by inviting children and young people to design and build drawing machines or explore animated lines. There will be opportunities to experiment with diverse techniques and materials, design posters, print and bind books. The experiments are digital, analogue, colourful or minimal – the possibilities are virtually endless.

Ages 8 – 14
Every Wednesday, 4 – 6 pm (except school holidays)

Meeting point: Visitor Centre Bauhaus Dessau
Gropiusallee 38, 06846 Dessau-Roßlau

Exhibition: Carl Fieger. From Bauhaus to Bauakademie

10:00 Uhr

Carl Fieger (1893–1960) made architectural history with his first building. The single-family house in Dessau (1924) remained an experimental building, but also contributed significantly to the endeavour to set new standards in housing construction. As an employee in the offices of Peter Behrens and Walter Gropius he was involved in creating iconic buildings like the Fagus Factory in Alfeld (1922-25) or the Bauhaus Building in Dessau (1925/26).

Carl Fieger left his mark on modern architecture. He had an eye for standardisation and later put his experience with prefabricated parts and new materials to use as a research assistant at the Deutsche Bauakademie, the German university of architecture in East Berlin. In 1953 he built the first prefabricated building in Berlin, which hid its construction method behind a traditional facade.

The exhibition highlights the complete oeuvre of the architect, designer and distinguished draftsman and rediscovers Fieger in his original drawings, architectural models and furniture – as a designer, who combines new standards with individual expression.

The symposium “Models – Agents of Design“ in the framework of the master’s programme COOP Design Research will discuss models as epistemes of design in the company of cultural scientists, architects, historians, designers and students.

Humboldt Universität Berlin, Sophienstraße 22a, Berlin
21 June 2018, 11am – 4 pm 

Knowledge production in design is directly connected with model building processes. Models occupy a liminal space: they fluctuate between conception and abstraction, fact and fiction, analysis and synthesis, hypothesis and proof.

The fields of design and media studies, architectural sciences and visual culture have in recent years highlighted the uniqueness of models in the design process and in doing so passed criticism on a result-orientated interpretation that examines models and visualisation, plans and drawings solely from the perspective of the final project, the constructed end result.

The symposium in the framework of the master’s programme Coop Design Research will discuss models as epistemes of design in the company of cultural scientists, architects, historians, designers and students.

In addition to lectures on models as agents of design knowledge production in the history and theory of architecture and design, the speakers, guests and students of the master’s programme Coop Design Research will discuss the relevance of models in design pedagogy, design research and the design development process.
