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.

landscapes in transition

published // source: RAUMbeziehungen, Susanne Lorenz & Francis Zeischegg (Hrg.), University for Fine Arts HfBK Hamburg & Burg Giebichenstein University for Art and Design Halle, 2009

The paper is part of the cooperation within the project `RAUMbeziehungen´, directed by Susanne Lorenz and Francis Zeischegg, conceptualized as a dialogue between the cities Halle and Hamburg. It`s linking some aspects of Geography as a spatial science and the discussion about cultural landscapes, to interpret the transformation of landscape as a cultural transition.  The language is german.

Der Artikel entstand in Kooperation mit dem Projekt `RAUMbeziehungen´, koordiniert von Susanne Lorenz und Francis Zeischegg und konzipiert als Dialog zwischen den Städten Halle und Hamburg. Er stellt Bezüge zwischen der Geographie als Raumwissenschaft und dem kulturwissenschaftlichen Diskurs um den Begriff der Landschaft her, um Landschaftsveränderung  als kulturellen Transformationsprozess zu verstehen.
