Shell/ Gehäuse

In a sequence of impromptu short drafts, objects/spaces are designed, which - in the border area of art and architecture - explore the themes of 'hermitage' (time-experience), 'soundbody' (space vs. music) and 'housing for a favorite object' (model-like + scale) into synaesthetically experienceable, space-plastic enclosures.

Photo films are films that essentially consist of still photographs, that question our viewing habits, that make us think cinema. Photo films demand active, reflective viewers.

Photo films are experimental laboratories that allow us to present urban phenomena in a new way on film.

Reiff Hack/EM

Reiff Hack represents a blended learning project of the Faculty of Architecture. The project handles the conception, collection and provision of short practice films - so-called ‘life hacks’ for the study of architecture. The films show manual practices from the study of architecture. For this purpose, students create videos with practical tips and tricks from architecture for other students. The Reiff Hacks offer the possibility to profit from the knowledge of others, to contact them and to provide knowledge for ‘learning by doing’ themselves.
