Prof. Matthias Beckh

Kick-off of a cooperation project between TU Dresden & HfBK

The organizers and project directors of the initiative “Wissen schafft Raum” met with interested students and Meisterschüler*innen from the TU Dresden and the HfBK in the Aktsaal on Brühlsche Terrasse for the kick-off on April 11th.
In the next months, collaborative initiatives at the intersections of theory, art, architecture, and science will be produced, with the goal of making them accessible to a broad university and city audience through artistic-scientific interventions in urban space at the end of the project phase.
Prof. Matthias Beckh addressed lightweight construction and weightlessness, Junior Professor Matthew McGinity addressed immersive media and virtual reality, Prof. Miriam Ackermann addressed orientation in public space via the ears in collaboration with the Palucca University of Dance Dresden, and Prof. Henning Haupt and his colleague Ludwig Kupfer addressed design and color as a material for architecture at the kick-off event.
Students and postgraduates from architecture, computer science, and art will collaborate on projects in groups or individually, supplemented by workshops and consultations.
During the winter semester 2022/23, the public will have the opportunity to not only see the results, but also to interact with students and postgraduates, learn about methods, and get ideas for their own scientific involvement.
It is planned to curate the outcomes for a final show.

The initiative “TUD in Dialogue” chose the project, which will run until the end of the year.
