From the 7th to the 11th of May 2019, architecture students of the TU Berlin (Habitat Unit) explored and examined the  surroundings of the south-Oderbruch by bicycle. Starting point was Golzow, and the team and the students analysed also the villages of Manschnow, Gorgast, Küstrin-Kietz, and Rathstock. The aim is to compare the architecture and town planning of the various villages. To this end, the morphologies have been analysed, the historical developments registered on plans, and the structures and typologies of residential areas were mapped.

Every day, starting from 6pm, the students talked and discussed with the inhabitants about their observations and ideas. Meeting point: Gut Gorgast.

The excursion and workshop was part of the Bachelor Design Studio of the Habitat Unit of the TU Berlin: the students spendt five days researching on site, and continued to work with the collected materials in Berlin. In the course of the semester, students’ design projects have been developed from the analysis’ results.

The Workshop and the Bachelor Design Studio took place in cooperation with the community of Golzow and the Film Museum in Golzow.
The supervisors were Áine Ryan and Vittoria Capresi.
