The nature of architecture has changed. It is no longer enough to find purely aesthetic languages of form. Rather, it is today the task of architecture to create future-oriented spaces that support the sustainable actions of a society. Architecture becomes social engineering. Form Follows Function' could (again) be the motto - and the function needs to be found together!
From an architectural perspective, the development of the ALTEN MU is in many respects an exciting object of investigation and a stimulating place to work.
Are you interested in integral building and design? Are you looking for innovative concepts that think living and working together? Are flexibility and efficiency in the use of space your topics? Or have you always been interested in how participatory project development can be organised through citizen participation? And so are we, because all these tasks are still ahead of us and must be thought of holistically from the future - that is our task and our aspiration.
C20 gives you the opportunity to conduct application-oriented research and actively shape future architecture - or simply to keep up with the times and do your work. The architecture studio Gradweise around Florian Michaelis will be at your side, or you will work together with the planning office for Urban Transformation on questions concerning the user*internal, sustainable real estate development of ALTEN MU.
A word about the location: ALTE MU is a former school of art, built in 1951 according to the Bauhaus-Dessau model. It is particularly important to us to preserve the spirit of the location and to take the language of form, including its inherent values, with us into the future. Here, too, there are many starting points for our own research.
