Immersive Studio - HIL-Z, 2022
Architectural Design V-IX AS22
Immersion:
We are used to designing architecture from a supposedly objective perspective. With immersive technologies, we overcome this distance, expand our perception and dive directly into the space to be designed. In doing so, we will develop an altered understanding of space in which we digitally design architecture and its construction while simultaneously moving within it.
We will critically reflect the potentials of these technologies beyond a pure efficiency thinking and develop an independent and emancipated attitude towards them.

Program:
We will, as the studio name HIL-Z already reveals, develop project proposals for the vertical extension of the HIL building. In doing so, we will focus on densification as an addition to the building in wood-frame construction. With this strategy we activate the roofscapes of the HIL building and generate new spatial references.
Programmatically, we will attempt to answer the following question: What are the spatial requirements of immersive studios like ours for a future school of architecture, what does the drawing room of the digital age look like, and how can temporary forms of living be linked to the program of a school of architecture?
Aspects of materialization, fabrication and sustainability will decisively shape the discussion about architectural design.
