Global Studio Berlin

Description

This year's open studio in Dessau and Berlin focuses on manifestos as a form of setting standards. The question deals with the concept of infrastructures for learning by looking at the Bauhaus building, designed by Walter Gropius in Dessau, as a point of departure. The Bauhaus was founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius in Weimar as a merger of the Grand Ducal School of Arts and Crafts and the Weimar Academy of Fine Art. It moved to Weimar in 1925, and in 1926 it moved into the building with its iconic architecture. Students take the Gropius Bauhaus manifesto and program as a lens to explore and deconstruct the spaces and architecture of the Bauhaus as an infrastructure for learning. This is done so students think about learning and creating knowledge, in general, and more specifically in architectural education.

The global studio program provides intensive studio learning through cross-cultural education and collaborative learning. The program encourages interdisciplinary learning and offers an expanded studio environment in which students discover and synthesise new technical and conceptual skills from multiple disciplines within the Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building.
