Home-less

when 23 July 2018 - 28 July 2018
language English
duration 1 week
fee EUR 590

A nomadic life implies the common use and the temporary sharing of a home. What are the feelings that determine the quality of the relationships with such spaces ? Is it possible to sense architectonic identity beyond ownership ? And, can we, through new technology, design virtual environments that trigger emotions like “belonging to a place” more than places that belong to us ?

Hannes Meyer’s Co-op Interieur was conceived as a display of nomadic life rather than a room. It pointed to the contemplative aspects of privacy and intimacy. From this point of view, through the project home-less, we will investigate the qualities of the individual rooms at the Bauhaus Bundesschule. We will build them into an immersive virtual environment that not only supports interaction with the space and other inhabitants, but also augments the experience of the place beyond its physical features.
