Architecture Engineering Utopian

Project:

The Utopian – eine architektonische Graphic Novel

Award winner:

Carolin Lahode

University / Supervising tutor:

Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart / Prüfungskommission Architektur

 

Designer’s statement
At a time when the continued existence of Utopia stood in doubt, the Japanese utopian pursued his vision of a more just world undaunted. Even if his search for the definitive correct social order seems somewhat hopeless, he is the last optimist of our time. With a firm belief in a better future, our world-improver breaks the complexity of the present into manageable subdivisions.
He then encounters the boundaries of his own possibilities and those of general acceptability. Nevertheless, he holds firmly on to his ideals and even in the future will never tire of testing new concepts of human cohabitation in our world. “The Utopian” came about in the context of a graduation thesis.

Each of the six chapters of the comic offers a collection of different thoughts on the themes of utopia, Japanese society and architecture. They can, in that respect, either be seen as stand-alone chapters or appear in an open single sequence.

 

Jury statement
The verbal and graphic visions of the author are exciting and gripping. The search for a correct social order and its spatial manifestation is convincingly recounted, in a new and refreshing way. This is impressively documented through townplanning and architectural visions. This impressive contribution is being skilfully translated into drawings, texts and into book form – a truly extraordinary article.

Doppelgänger

Award winners:

University / Supervising tutor:

Bauhaus Universität Weimar
Prof. Jens Geelhaar, Dr. Sabine Zierold State University of New York, University at Buffalo / Prof. Mark Shepard

 

Designers’ statement
Doppelgänger is an interactive installation, which stands as an acoustic portal in an open space to connect people from distant places together. Two telematically connected tunnels are at two different locations (originally Weimar and Buffalo, NY, USA).

Contact microphones in the floor pick up the visitor’s footfall and play it back (wirelessly and live) through the loudspeakers of the “partner tunnels”. Two visitors enter the tunnel simultaneously and can encounter each other. Communication is limited exclusively to the noise of footfall along the tunnel. The varying widths and distances between the frame lead to a blending of inside and outside, light and shadow; the act of walking becomes a sensual experience. At the moment, the project comprises two functional prototypes which are currently stored in Buffalo, New York, and Weimar in Germany. Further developments to the construction of a technical, artistic and conceptual nature are planned, as are international partnerships and the worldwide installation of pavilions in order to connect people from differing locations together.

 

Jury statement
The work is characterised by intelligent reduction: whilst worldwide communication with sound and image is possible with FaceTime, “Doppelgänger” is limited only to the noise of our footsteps – like jungle drums, users in two different locations now interact with each other only through knocking and have to listen to each other much more carefully. And while design in public spaces vies for attention with visual volume, »Doppelgänger« restricts itself to a simple frame that toys with transparency, light and shadow. Highly aesthetically developed and executed throughout.

Project:

ito – transport in the urban space

Award winners:

Sebastian Stittgen, Steffen Fehlinger

University / Supervising tutor:

Hochschule für Gestaltung Schwäbisch Gmünd
Prof. Dr. Susanne Schade, Prof. Dr. habil. Jürgen Held

 

Designers’ statement
ito – transport in the urban space is more than just an alternative to the car.

Our changing lifestyles require more than just alternatives to the car. Large cities are growing and more and more people are living in less space – most of them without cars.

Transport should therefore always allow you to reach your goal without having to unload, even if you are on the second floor. ito unites the dynamic of a traditional caddy with the sought-after load-carrying ability of a large work bike. Its flexible, compact ergonomics paired with a dynamic, supportive electro motor and an innovative tyre concept allow for loads of up to 100 kg to be moved easily.

 

Jury statement
In an urban environment, mobility is increasingly less defined by automobiles. ito brings an innovative application through the combination of electric power and a wheel system which can easily overcome stairs and steps with little effort. ito is impressive because it is such a simple and obvious solution. ito is suitable for tradesmen as well as for private individuals of all ages.

Interaction Mate

Project:

„Mate“ – eine Vision für das Schulbuch der Zukunft

Award winner:

Rahel Flechtner

University / Supervising tutor:

Hochschule Magdeburg-Stendal
Prof. Bernhard Schmid-Wohlleber, Dipl.-Psych. Dipl.-Inform. Johannes Schäfer (externer Betreuer)

 

Designer’s statement
“Mate” is a digital schoolbook which promotes active and independent learning in pupils. At the same time, it meets the needs of the learner. The pupil is encouraged to actively involve themself with the book's content, to discover their own learning focus and to research particular themes more deeply. As a loyal companion, “Mate” leads the learner through their time at school, recognises their abilities and future needs, and can purposefully support the learning process.

 

Jury statement
In this time of market-leading producers, “Mate” is a welcome alternative as a mobile device with many functions to support interactive learning of classical content across all pupil ages. This alone is not enough to be special, but the focus on the highly complex application of learning in connection with traditional materials such as books and pens raises it to the next level. Great praise is due for the concept, presentation and execution. Quite rightly a first prize.

Communication Graphic D-facto

Project:

D-facto

Award winner:

Piotr Zapasnik

University / Supervising tutor:

Fachhochschule Düsseldorf
Prof. Andreas Uebele, Prof. Wilfried Korfmacher

 

Designer’s statement
D-facto is a series of posters consisting of 17 motifs, with 100 posters per motif put up between October 2014 and February 2015 on 41 sites within Du?sseldorf.

New posters appeared weekly, with the intention of bringing topics that were current, controversial and, above all, relevant to the inhabitants of Düsseldorf directly into the public space. In response to local political, economic and cultural events, black-and-white placards carried social appeals, critical comments and poignant announcements for the public. The aim of this project was to return the social-critical placard to its birthplace, in the public space. Additionally, these notices were intended to create public awareness for topics of public interest, thereby lending the medium a significance that stands apart from institutional and commercial interest. The motifs were created and turned into posters weekly and were simultaneously published and archived on a website and associated social media accounts.

 

Jury statement
Piotr Zapasnik has reminded us of the poster as a means of social communication. By broaching the issue of current problems he not only ensures an original interaction in the urban space, but raises the placard above its function as a medium for advertisements and lends it a new social relevance. The jury was further convinced by the practical implementation of D-facto, whereby Piotr Zapasnik managed to initiate valuable discussion.
