february 19th, 2021 - "school building = building school"

Thank you for the beautiful laudatio from Antje Voigt and the association of german architects "BDA":
"Vier neue Räume für eine Grundschule in Nepal, in Form und Reihung bewusst reduziert auf den Archetypus Haus, in der Materialisierung geprägt vom Experimentieren mit vier grundverschiedenen rezyklierten Materialien: Ist das gute Architektur oder ästhetischer Eklektizismus?, fragte sich die Jury. Der Verfassertext und die Projektfotos antworten selbstbewusst (und in bester Tradition von Alison und Peter Smithson): Das - offenbar lustvolle - Ausloten der Möglichkeiten lokal verfügbarer Baustoffe entspringt nicht geszalterischem Selbstzweck, es dient als Vehikel zur Aneignung der Aufgabe, des Ortes und seiner Mittel. Es (re-)aktiviert die Bautradition und die Bereitschaft der Anwohner, am Bau mitzuwirken. Der Schulbau wird zur Bauschule. Er schafft aus Vergangenem neue Lebensräume, die ihrerseits im Ergebnis eine Vielzahl von "Anhaltspunkten" zur weiteren aktiven Aneignung (etwa durch Beklettern, Besitzen, Beschaukeln, Befüllen, und Befühlen) für die jungen Nutzer bieten.
Das Projekt verbindet klare gestalterische Entscheidungen in allen Maßstäben, gute Räume, materialspezifische Konstruktionen, sozial-ökonomisch-ökologische Nachhaltigkeit, Nutzer-Ermächtigung und sinnliches Begreifen. Ist das gute Architektur? Ja, und zwar mit Anerkennung!
Für die Jury
Antje Voigt

100% system-relevant architecture: Doesn't matter how many friends you need to see in times of social distancing - there is always an architectural solution. Many of these solutions have been presented by the Corona Design Lab - a research laboratory founded by future architects from supertecture and "Rainsburg's" famous school of architecture: "the OTH".
Supported from the bavarian chamber of architects and OTH's friends association we have now collected all the creative Corona Design Lab ideas in a single book:
