Spa and Hotel (3rd year)

TASK

design a hotel and spa complex in tourist resort at the Northern Sea

LOCATION
Trawemünde, Germany

FOCUS

design, optimise costs, structural details, preliminary calculations

PROJECT PARTNER

Felix Schaub

 

IDEA

Based on additive and layering principle spread over the neighbourhood of the resort, implement a new interpretation of combining two materials – bricks and concrete. Build corridors and communication areas in a rather open way – use large openings and reduce the partition walls to create a continuous space flow. However, hide the private rooms behind the closed, brick curtain wall facade and sun blinds.

St. Concrete (2nd year)

TASK

design a simple, multi-functional, sacral object in reinforced concrete (a quiet place for meditation, a chapel, a landmark at a highway)

LOCATION

a highway in Germany (without any further specifation)

FOCUS

light, space ow, views and connection, structural details project

PROJECT PARTNER

Felix Schaub

 

IDEA

Turn the impressions of taking a break from fast road and finding a quiet place to relax into the form itself. Break a block of concrete aparts, so that the light infiltrating the space in between these halfs creates a transcendent atmosphere. Ultimately, a simple crack opens up and offers a magnicent view into the nature, setting the spirits free.

Visualisation Class (1st year)

Our curriculum at BTU includes several visualisation classes. We have startet to draw by hand, yet we got around very fast and ended up drawing digitally. However, I still enjoy sketching especially when getting started on project.

The task of this particular class was to build 3D model with Rhinoceros of an imaginary roman house in Pompeji –  the only rule was, it should look plausible. Then, render one perfect shot. It took us some time, especially when we were trying to fire up the rendering back then. It took us forever and cost us great amount of patience. Anyway, we were working in a team of three and had plenty of fun as well. Thank you Sophie and Mathaeus!

Spring School Siwa 2013

TASK

theoretical and practical design of an art studio

LOCATION

Siwa oasis, Egypt

FOCUS

studies of vernacular architecture and traditional building techniques

TEAMWORK
students of TU Stuttagt, Ain-Shams-University Cairo, ENAU Tunis

IDEA
Analyse the unique construction methods in Siwa and problems of building with karsheef (raw blocks of crystalysed salty mud). To prevent the decay of structures caused by capilar water rising up, propose to build a ventilated layer over foundations to let the water evaporate before it reaches the walls. Finally, present different roof constructions to reach longer spans using palmtree wood.

Design a studio based on contrast of shapes – an optimised outer shell in cubic form compared to soft, organic curves inside, which represent the artist´s free spirit.
