DESIGN 2

Nowadays we are experiencing that cooking is partially disappearing from the everyday life of modern society. In the past, however, cooking and eating together was an important way of connecting people. But cooking as entertainment is also often one of the activities sought in social media. For this reason, we have decided to transform the virtual space of social media into a physical world of modern cooking. Kitchen and dining room, where different actors without distinction of age, gender, nationality, religion or experience could meet to become a new think tank for people.
The design of one (or more) common kitchens is the main goal of this project. We are looking for the spatial idea from the perspective of the chefs, where cooking itself becomes an entertainment for everyone. We see it as a new typology, where the creation of a program and its functionality opens new perspectives to attract new communities.

The Landesberufsschulzentrum (LBS) in Sankt Peter is a hub of vocational training schools of supra-regional relevance. Last year, there were nearly 5.000 apprentices  learning almost 60 different skilled trades. Many of these students hail from other Austrian federal states or from further parts of Styria. Their homes and families are too far to commute daily, thus needing specific accommodation nearby. However, the only existing boarding school (Naglergasse) can currently host less than 4% of the pupils of the Landesberufsschulzentrum. 
This problem has been acknowledged by the Styrian Government, leading to several provisory actions (agreements with youth centres and hostels) and to mid-term plans of building specific accommodation facilities in and/or near the LBS-campus. 
For this term’s E4+EST task we propose two of these new buildings in order to give an appropriate answer to the different accommodation needs of two age groups:
<16 for younger students, who are leaving home for the first time and need some supervision
>17 for older students, who are already rather independent and autonomous
Both buildings will have a public ground floor, serving the community of the LBS in the case of the <16 building and the visitors of the nearby cemetery in the case of the >17 building.

MASTERSTUDIO MULTIPLICITY - BERLIN

PROJECTS

MULTIPLICITY Berlin
Expansion of the Reinbeckhallen in Berlin-Oberschöneweide
Berlin is booming - still? 

Artists helped to make "disreputable" districts chic. The real estate market is gratefully accepting this trend of urban development and is increasingly developing upwards. Fewer and fewer people can still afford to live and work in gentrified neighborhoods. With the migration of this first wave of gentrification, which mainly consists of artists, students and squatters, to remote peripheral areas, the "hip" identity of these districts is also increasingly fading. What remains of the creative "dirty chic" is a commercialized image of it. The city struggles to maintain its image as a creative, productive art and cultural metropolis. 
The play on words Multiplicity Berlin refers to a culturally productive district that owes its identity to the diversity of actors who constantly play it and constantly renegotiate, animate and help shape public space.
In Berlin-Oberschöneweide, a place has been created in the Reinbekchallen, where artists and cultural workers can settle down and realize their work in the long term, independent of gentrification. A former industrial site has been transformed into a lively, creative and innovative area with a future. A place which, shaped by art and culture, can create a lasting identity.
