Around the concept of the commons a new and challenging field of thought has emerged in the areas of economics, politics and social sciences, which proposes radically different ways of organising our societies. In today's architectural practice, important experiments are taking place that can be understood as practices of commoning.
The initiative for The Studio arose out of the study of Learning Architecture - Architecture about Learning at the Institute for Art and Architecture (IKA). Based on the experiences of the Studio Ambiguous Environments, we have designed a form of open and self-determined teaching in terms of content and programme and tested it as a real laboratory in the summer term 2016.
Ambiguous Environments - Exhibition
Learning Architecture - Architecture of Learning was the annual theme of the IKA 2015/16.
The Studio 205, consisting of 15 people, tested itself in a self-experiment. The result was a laboratory and a discussion platform that raised questions of authorship, free teaching and the death of architecture and tried to answer them through cooperative and individual design.
A bar (Akbar), a blog, a collective performance in 4 acts, and an exhibition were created.
