On Friday, June 16, 2023, the Bachelor's degree programme ClimateEngineering held this year's Case Study Tag. Exciting, innovative projects were presented again this year!
Punctually at 9:45 a.m., Prof. Volkmar Bleicher, Dean of the Bachelor's programme ClimateEngineering, together with Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jan Cremers, Dean of the Faculty of Architecture and Design, welcomed the guests present at the event.
Afterwards, the project "Borneo - a sustainable timber construction system in Indonesia" was presented by Prof. Andreas Löffler, former professor at the university, and owner of the office Löffler_Schmeling Architekten, Dustin Fleck, B.Eng., employee at Transplan and Hanna Koesling, M.A. as well as Laura Rothgang, M.A., employees at Fairventures. The aim of this project was to develop a sustainable timber construction system made of Sengon lightweight wood, which is specifically designed for subtropical climates. A complete building system was to be developed from multi-layer boards, which, among other things, adapts the traditional construction method in terms of design and also enables various building shapes and sizes.
The second exciting project, the "Rapunzel" visitor centre in Legau, was presented by Dipl.-Ing. Sinan Tiryaki, architect at haascookzemmrich, and, Dipl.-Ing. Monika Schulz, employee at Transsolar. Rapunzel Naturkost is one of the leading organic producers in Europe. With the construction of the visitor centre, a sophisticated architecture with a low CO2 footprint was to be realised. The leitmotif "We make organic out of love" served as the basis for the entire design concept. In addition to the use of sustainable and above all regional materials, special attention was paid to determining the location and arrangement of the rooms and window openings according to microclimatic aspects.
Following the presentations, prizes were finally presented to the two students of the Bachelor's degree programme Climate Engineering, Tillmann Finger, B.Eng. and Severin Baumgartner, B.Eng. for outstanding achievements. Tillmann Finger was presented with the Joseph Egle Award by Dipl.-Ing. Jürgen Mutz, Head of the City of Stuttgart. Severin Baumgartner received the Association-of- Friends-Award from the Association of Friends, represented by the Chairman Dipl.-Ing. Bernd Göhner.
As a festive finale, all guests, as well as speakers and university members, were invited to an exchange of ideas and a joint barbecue in the courtyard.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all speakers, lecturers, colleagues and staff for their support in teaching and organisation!
