Hermann-von-Helmholtz School, Berlin

Several Method Modules were applied as part of the Design Seminar “Open Source School”. For instance, Atmo Generators in the form of climate-transformers in 1:1 scale were tested by the pupils, revised and expanded upon. Building Atmo Generators awakens a curiosity and desire to experiment in the user and at the same time develops a better understanding of spatial atmospheres.
