Students of architecture and interior design developed a design for a pavilion based on a scaffolding system together with their supervising professors Benedikt Bosch and Harald Roser.
Each group of two first worked out a design, then the best one was selected for implementation. During the lecture-free period, the students worked hard to turn this design into reality! From the approval, financing, sponsoring to public relations, everything was in the hands of the students.
The result is an open, colorful scaffolding pavilion that will be set up from October 1 and used as an event and exhibition space from October 4 to October 14.
The pavilion is being built in the Stadtgarten and thus in the direct vicinity of the HFT Stuttgart. It is to become the event stage, in order to celebrate the reopening of the presence university to this winter semester after the long time of pandemic-conditioned online teachings together.
The pavilion is the exhibition venue for the best student theses and dissertations from the previous year, which have already been published in a digital BEST OF 2020 exhibition and are now brought into the pavilion here via QR codes. 200 discarded cardboard tubes from newspaper printing plants will be hung in the pavilion. They will bear the QR code, which will be used to show one best student work at a time. In total, numerous works from all courses of study of the faculty will be presented. The exhibition concept was developed under the direction of Prof. Andreas Kretzer.
Behind the whole project is a sustainable concept: the cardboard tubes are recycled, the scaffolding elements are borrowed, the coloured stage gauze, which is also used, comes from the manufacturer's remaining stocks, which are to be reused after dismantling. The aim is that the materials can be dismantled back into their individual parts and reused in accordance with the cradle-to-cradle principle.
