Buchpräsentation: Diskursiv No. 1 Models

Die schwindende Wertschätzung für den physischen Modellbau in Zeiten der Digitalisierung ist das Problem, das hinter dem ersten Themenschwerpunkt „Modelle“ steckt. Diese Publikation versteht sich als Plädoyer für den handwerklichen Modellbau im digitalen Zeitalter.

Die Buchpräsentation findet am Donnerstag, den 23. November 2022 um 20:00 Uhr in der Werkstatt des Instituts für Raumgestaltung, Lessingstraße 25/EG statt.


“Models” is intended as a call to slow down the design process of architecture. Contemporary architecture relies less on model making and more on rendering with computer programs. Does this circumstance lead to architecture loosing its sensitivity and sensuality? The architect’s creative process should be to design with the help of their own hands, rather than with a controller. Otherwise, a certain creative design process, which involves the use of craftsmanship techniques and the physical examination of materials, will vanish. A detachment from error-free 3D renderings should be regarded as an opportunity to expand one‘s own imagination, which in turn can open up space for new ideas. In this sense, physical modeling offers advantages that may not be immediately apparent, but subsequently make it indispensable for a sustainable architectural practice.
