applied research & communication // in cooperation with Urban Design // TU Berlin
The aim of the project is to develop and to test building-integrated technologies of water treatment and water purification for the irrigation and fertilization of building-integrated greenhouse farms. The hygienically safe use of related water and nutrient flows is at focus. The project includes research on the potentials and opportunities of building-typological and urban spatial integration of Roof Water-Farm types for fish- and plant production. Challenges and risks of the transferability of this comprehensive infrastructural technology will be analyzed within the context of an innovative urban water resource management and urban food production. Guidances for different actors as well as media of communication will be developed and published.

A space is hardly separable from us humans, who fill it out with life and give it a purpose. The space is formed by us. We live, love, work and die in it. The DUST becomes allegory for retrospective stories and events that have taken place in spaces. What happens or remains of us when a place is left behind, orphaned?
After a departure into a new world with GUEST and a life in a foreign land in GHOST, with DUST, we have arrived in the city and let the place tell its story.
Räume sind nur schwer trennbar von uns Menschen, die diese mit Leben ausfüllen und ihnen erst eine Daseinsberechtigung geben. Ein Raum wird durch uns geformt. Wir leben, lieben, arbeiten und sterben in ihm. Der Staub wird zur Allegorie retrospektiver Erzählungen und Geschehnisse, die sich im Raum ereignet haben. Was passiert oder was bleibt von uns, wenn ein Ort zurückgelassen wird? DUST lässt den Raum für sich sprechen und die Geschichte erzählen.

In spatial and movement research the use of the term `landscape ́ is often understood as something external to and independent of the body. Climate change, high dynamics in urban development and new social movements are asking for methods, to read, interpret, design and to choreograph landscapes as structures of transformation.
We believe that how the body interacts with the landscape shapes its structure simultaneously as the landscape informs the body. Questioning approaches and perceptions of movement, rhythm and sequence could lead to methods of perceiving and designing landscapes as performative processes.
The workshop is presented in the context of Hybrid Platform, an initiative of the Berlin University of the Arts and the technical University of Berlin, to support projects in research and education in the heart of Campus Charlottenburg Berlin.
