Do What You Want

TN max. 12

The university is a place for research and experiment of thought. Within the "do what you want" studio the participants develop their own project idea and reflect on the process of architectural design. Therefore we refer to the "do what you want" studio as interest driven - in contrast to most studios that are based on assignments.  With this format we aim to promote experimental ideas and encourage students to trust and develop their own creative and critical thinking.

The studio is a particular open space for personal project ideas to be positioned in relation to the physical environment, social questions and the discursive world. With this open offer we want to promote rigorous, experimental project ideas.

At the beginning of the studio, we start with a presentation of each students leading question and proposed project trajectory. We then continue to work collaboratively in the studio with weekly colloquia, where all students feedback on the work of the others. A series of Pin-Ups and presentations help localize the individual project development in the context of the work done in the studio in general. 

We ask for a personal preliminary talk to clear questions and possible project directions to elaborate to what extent we can give the right input. This semester, our weekly meetings will take place in the Floating University Berlin every Wednesday afternoon.
