Design-Build / Workshop / University    –  BTU, 2017


Within the course of one semester the Master students were engaging in this interlacing program. A competition entry marks the beginning, which is followed by a phase of defining the design and detailing the project to make it possible for the group to construct themselves.

Two groups were formed during the course. This project was was RELAX-X.

The construction phase is also a life test. Adaptations in order to successfully complete the project are evident in the process. The hands-on exercise, the use of tools and understanding the material properties broaden the perspective upon architecture. Bringing the vision of the concept into a built reality is challenging, and in the end a very proud, happy and satisfying inauguration.
