Frankfurt Studio 2019 Ostend // Pier F

As cities struggle with reducing their carbon footprint and improving livability, there is a tension between external and internal requirements buildings and how this impacts urban form. The objective of this studio is to study one such successful city, Frankfurt am Main, in situ. Prior to travel, students are to research the history of the City of Frankfurt from an architectural and urbanism point of view and examine their approach to daylighting and natural ventilation. On arrival, students are to conduct thorough site analyses and to determine what are the programming needs for a modern and appropriate mixed-use building in the Ostend district. Students are to be clear about their presentation methods since they are not able to verbally present their designs within the catalogue and exhibition. The designs must stand on their own merit and communicate intention. Documentation and medium must succinctly convey meaning and persuade ideas visually.
