Siegmunds Hof presented in Barcelona
As part of the eme3 International Architecture Festival, die Baupiloten held a lecture titled “Get Involved! Rethinking Housing” and discussed alternative participative design strategies as a method for addressing the major challenges of student and affordable housing.
In addition to the series of talks, which focused on emerging practices in making Utopias real, the accompanying exhibition showcased a number of inventive projects which dealt with issues of citizen participation, self-management, collective economies, bottom up processes and reuse of abandoned spaces and buildings. Here the whole participatory process of the transformation of Siegmunds Hof Student Halls of residence is exhibited.
