Designbuild in Architecture

TUM’s Architecture Museum is opening its largest and most comprehensive exhibition on “DesignBuild” to date – a teaching method offered at numerous architecture schools around the world, where students can plan, design, and implement projects on a full-scale basis. They build homes, theaters, schools, kindergartens, and hospitals, mostly in developing countries, but occasionally also in underserved areas on their own doorstep. The teaching method is not without criticism, but it offers students the opportunity to lend a hand and deal with unknown people, other cultures, and different materials.

DesignBuild has a long tradition, but in recent years has become an increasingly popular concept at many universities. The purpose of the exhibition is therefore to inform the general public about the social impact and longterm significance of this teaching method.

NEWS: part of the exhibition will travel to AIT Hamburg & DAZ Berlin

Wild Care Tame Neglect

Exhibition by visual artist Edward Thomson Clydesdale at Huize Frankendael Amsterdam

What possible agency and space do (tamed) nature and culture occupy within this former country estate surrounded by the busy city, a site that now actively serves as a restaurant and reception location. Is it possible for art in such a location to escape an ever-present aesthetic harmony? What role and whose desires does an artist fulfil in a scenario where they act as host, gardener, programmer and hermit?

The exhibition gathers works by Thomson as well as of literary theorist Frans-Willem Korsten and artists Jason Coburn, Nikola Lamburov and Ine Lamers. Designers Sandra Kassenaar and Bart de Baets developed a poster campaign during a public workshop programme with de 5e Montessorischool Watergraafsmeer, colleagues and visitors. The exhibition design by EventArchitectuur cleverly reframes the garden of Huize Frankendael itself as an architectural structure for the showing of art.
