International Summer School Erfurt.
Unter der Leitung von Professor Philipp Krebs, Professor für Baukonstruktionslehre und energieeffizientes Bauen an der Fakultät Architektur und Stadtplanung der Fachhochschule Erfurt, wurde vom 01. bis 04. September zum vierten mal die Internationale Summer School „Think-Build-Play“ durchgeführt, dieses Mal in Erfurt.
Die internationale Summer School hat zum Ziel, Studierende der Architektur aus europäischen Ländern zusammenzubringen und zum gemeinsamen, kooperativen Entwerfen und Bauen zu ermuntern.

The Summer School Think, Build and Play focuses every year on a specific material and the realization of a genuine experience in architecture. The purpose of Think, Build and Play is not only to come to develop an idea and realize it through collaboration, but also to set it up, present it for specific use on the final day of the workshop.

Think, build and play is about creating architecture as the scenery for tomorrow, where the city is no longer the opposite of nature.

The Petersberg Citadel, the only extensively preserved town baroque fortress within a in central European city, is located in the medieval center of Erfurt. This Historically this terrific extraordinary terrain complex has not only been occupied used by the by military as a strategic stronghold, use but also by the and by the former Staatssicherheit (Stasi) of the DDR – a contentious part of the cities past for long period – a blank spot in the mental map.

The Workshop is focusing on researching the abilities of using a ‘weaving architecture’ to the question how to open this area the citadel to the to the citizens of the town and takes the lead incan be established through researching the capability of a ‘weaving architecture’ to complete this task. The area is laden with contrast. On the one hand it is already defined by the a necessity for contrast of concentrated contemplation of the citadels role in the history of this region, yet on the other hand this role exists within an expressive space seemingly and expressive open and unencumbered by historical openness.

In Within this contextual contradictory contradiction context lies the challenge to create new connections between the different layers of history, urban fabric and public spaces of – weaving architecture will explore the re-appropriation by weaving architecture and of thethe cityscape into to create new interdependent relationships and new singularity.

The workshop is about realizing concepts within this context and translating these concepts into structures. The students may only use a minimum range of tools, need to deploy a hands-on approach and can only use the limited time available for working out their ideas. The focus of this workshop is not so much on the end result, but rather on the performative qualities of the process, problem solving and installation.

A ‘weaving architecture’ does not only have to deal with predestined functionality, but also with unexpected use. In order to test these qualities, the installations will be set up for temporary use. We think that this staging of architecture can contribute to imagining the many possible functions and therefore the multiple identities of built environments.
