After successful completion of the course, students are able to tackle specific questions within the realm of urban landscape and its built environment. The focus of the course is on designing for cohabitation. See curriculum content.

Subject of course

The excursion takes place in conjunction with the course "Freiraum und Bebauung Neuperlach" and involves participation in the construction workshop in Munich Neuperlach.

VU Freiraum und Bebbauung: As part of the New European Bauhaus project NEBourhoods Neuperlach, spaces of cohabitation were designed in the winter semester of 2023/24 in the Munich district of Neuperlach, constructed in 1967. Students worked analytically with the concept coined by geographers Philo and Wilbert, distinguishing between "animal spaces" (spaces designated by humans for animals, such as zoos, stables, pastures, and wilderness) and "beastly places" (locations actually utilized by animals). They applied the planning method of Animal-Aided Design. The objective of the design project was to identify areas in the existing city that allow for appropriation by animals. The aim was to develop landscape planning and urban design proposals and scenarios for potential cohabitation between humans and non-human animals. Throughout the project, collaboration took place with local stakeholders from civil society and partners from the NEBourhoods research project. The design outcomes are planned to be implemented in the summer semester of 2024. Selected designs from the seven groups in the winter semester will be further developed and detailed as prototypes in the module. The responsible group will undertake all steps necessary for implementation (technical detailing, approvals, cost estimation, obtaining quotes, etc.). Together with local stakeholders (NEBourhood team, authorities, property owners, social institutions, citizens), pathways for implementing the designs will be explored. Towards the end of the semester, a construction workshop in Neuperlach will be organized to build one or multiple prototypes.
