01 No-Image Workshop Series

Summer 2017

 

Tutors from various European architectural offices, dedicated researchers, and local flaneurs will assist the groups of participants to explore the repertoires and rules of this discursive blindspot. Industrial-residential hybrids, complex infrastructural networks, vast greenspaces and rivers runing along towering settlements: the unbound patchwork of chaotic idylls - it all is to be found here. From the spectacular to the mundane, the mission is to trace hidden, oft-neglected potentials and qualities in the vernacular of a para-urban environment.

Participants will be called upon to use their skills from the field of architecture to document, illustrate, narrativize, and interconnect their findings in order to constitute a speculative reality.

Workshop A - Network Constellations

(22-27 June 2017, Periphery of Berlin)

 

Network Constellations applies to the territorial level of the city. Here we are particularly interested in that which connects and that which intersects. Interconnecting networks and infrastructures link both the inner and outer areas, but also open the peripheries up unto themselves (highways, constructed green spaces, natural elements). Intersecting systems form a complex organisational web within the urban fringe (survey networks and residential areas, industrial zones and logistics infrastructures). With this in mind, this workshop will first and foremost investigate the structural and spatial implications of such systems and networks in order to pose the question of how new constellations and configurations can be placed and made visible.

Workshop Leader: Ido Avissar (List, Paris), further workshop leaders will announced.

Workshop Profile: Network Constellations will run six days. The workshop will begin on Thursday afternoon with a general introduction to the agenda of No-Image, addressing the broader ramifications of the fundamental conditions of Berlin’s urban fringes. The following five days will see particular groups of themes processed through research, analysis, and further elaboration.

The participants will be divided into groups led by teams of tutors. A key principle to approaching and assessing the themes addressed will be the mixture of researchers, young practitioners, and students within the groups. This is vital for a reciprocal and comprehensive exchange of knowledge.

Number of Participants: 32

Timeframe: Network Constellations runs from 22 to 27 of June (beginning Thursday afternoon concluding Tuesday evening).

Language: The workshop will be conducted in English.

Fees: From 15 April to 5 May 80 Euro (regular) / 60 Euro (students) // From 6 May to 26 May 160 Euro (regular) / 120 Euro (students)

Application: Candidates should apply by sending a max. 5 MB PDF file (two pages, A4 portrait) comprising a CV and a presentation of their work in whatever form they prefer, making sure to include the following mandatory information: name, surname, date of birth, educational background, email address. The deadline for applications is extended to Friday, 26 May, 2017.

Workshop B - Typological Elements

(27 July – 1 August 2017, Periphery of Berlin)

 

Typological Elements focuses on the level of typologies, types, and architectonic elements that define the landscape of para-urban Berlin. Of particular interest is how profane elements can become symbolically charged through bricolage, how classical types mutate through their own cultivation and renovation, and how romantic and playful variance arises from brute, pragmatic forms of logic. We are fascinated with the ideas of assemblage and recombination of autonomous elements, and the subsequent inquiry: ‘What are they linked to?” The desire for this workshop is to collect, to extract, and to think about existing configurations with their systematically spatial and social impacts.

Workshop Leader: AMUNT (Stuttgart, Germany), BRUTHER (Paris, France).

Workshop Profile: Typological Elements will run six days. The workshop will begin on Thursday afternoon with a general introduction to the agenda of No Image, and with a summary of the work of the previous Network Constellations workshop. Additionally, we will position the development and proliferation of various typologies throughout Berlin’s periphery. The following five days will see particular groups of themes processed through research, analysis, and further elaboration.

The participants will be divided into groups led by teams of tutors. A key principle to approaching and assessing the themes addressed will be the mixture of researchers, young practitioners, and students within the groups. This is vital for a reciprocal and comprehensive exchange of knowledge.

Workshop C - Generic Objects

(28 September – 3 October 2017, Periphery of Berlin)

 

Generic Objects concerns the non-architectural elements that fill the in-between and everyday of Berlin’s fringes. These objects epitomize and influence the utopian visions and desires of these areas. Whether examining the subconscious of the lower-middle-class developments of single-family-homes, or looking to the proliferations of industrial and mixed use areas, generic objects stress questions of context. What does the single household’s desire of having a swimmingpool mean for a community when every neighbour has that wish? What is contextual when a mass of individual wishes creates a physical landscape of desire? Generic Objects seeks a broader understanding of spatial elements and aims to emphasize the non-architectural.

Workshop Leader: FAKT (Berlin, Germany), PEAKS (Paris, France), ATELIER FANELSA (Berlin, Germany).

Workshop Profile: Generic Objects will run six days. The workshop will begin on Thursday afternoon with a general introduction to the agenda of No Image, and with a summary of the work of the previous Network Constellations and Typological Elements workshops. We will also offer a prelimary survey of the multitude of genericities found throughout Berlin’s periphery. The following five days will see particular groups of themes processed through research, analysis, and further elaboration.

The participants will be divided into groups led by teams of tutors. A key principle to approaching and assessing the themes addressed will be the mixture of researchers, young practitioners, and students within the groups. This is vital for a reciprocal and comprehensive exchange of knowledge.
