Grafik für die Summer School 2022 an der HFT Stuttgart

MetamorphoCity - Summer School 2022 has started!

Here you can find information about events, presentations & exhibitions around the topic. In addition, we show a diary of the daily highlights.

The experimental and playful redesign, the metamorphosis of structural relics of changing and outdated forms of mobility is the focus of the Summer School 2022.
Our vision is to create a resilient living space for people. Three concrete non-places in Stuttgart will become the experimental field for this.

The Summer School is a regular event of the HFT Stuttgart under the direction of the Rector Prof. Dr. Katja Rade. This year it is hosted by the Faculty of Architecture and Design under the supervision of Prof. Harald Roser.

The METAMORPHOCITY Summer School came to a festive conclusion on August 5, 2022 with a grand finissage.

How can we turn a car city into a city that offers its people resilient living spaces, and how can we use the structural and spatial relics for this purpose? Three concrete non-places in Stuttgart Mitte became the experimental field for this question. They are located in the immediate vicinity of our HFT Stuttgart campus and exemplarily represent typologies of the car-friendly city: a street, an underground garage and a parking garage. The finissage took place at those three locations. The 19 participants of the Summer School, all contributors and numerous interested people moved together from one experimental field to the next. At each station, the respective team presented their creative redesign ideas.

Many thanks to Prof. Harald Roser and to all the numerous participants, supporters and facilitators.
