Repair (Seminar)


Repair is a central concept in the sustainability debate in architecture. We understand repair as a creative activity. Richard Sennett speaks of „fixing is making“. In the seminar, we want to make repair tangible as a millennia-old cultural practice. How is the repairability of buildings conceived and creatively used in different historical and cultural contexts? By means of case studies we want to bring further experiences and points of view into the current discussion.

Students, who are doing the Design Studio “Children’s Home” at FG Steffensen, will also attend the Repair meetings and do their PIV on the subject, but have other exam work to do. It will not be possible to attend the seminar “Repair” and to simultaneously attend the Design Studio “Children’s Home” as it includes “Repair” as PIV.
