HafenCity Lectures

Relations – Particular Cases and Situated Practices

The upcoming edition of the HafenCity Lectures Relations takes place under the title Particular Cases and Situated Practices. International architects and artists are invited to have a public conversation about one of their projects, with one project partner, be that a client, curator, or collaborator. The aim is to explore, from various perspectives, a specific project (a particular case) and the process of its development in relation to its urban, sociopolitical, historical, and cultural site. How is knowledge and a practice produced on site, situated in between diverse actors and agents, complex practical and conceptual frameworks? At four events, our guests discuss their work and their positions within a particular case. 

The event is supported by HafenCity Hamburg GmbH.

Open Call Workshop Series: Scientific-artistic Research in Architecture

The Architecture Research Initiative is the open cooperation project of the chairs Architecture and City, Architecture and Landscape, Architecture and Art, and Architecture and Experimental Design that has been dedicated to scientific-artistic research in architecture at HafenCity University Hamburg since 2018.
 
As part of the research initiative, several workshops on scientific-artistic research in architecture will be planned and carried out together with doctoral students and HCU research associates. Based on current doctoral and research projects at the HCU, the workshops serve to discuss, test methods and contents of scientific-artistic research together with external guests and members of the HCU. Guests and topics will be proposed by the researchers, scientific staff and doctoral students and the workshops will be designed and organized accordingly.
 
In the selection process, we are looking for concept abstracts that suggest a methodological and content-related focus for one of the planned workshops. The Open Call is aimed at doctoral students, researchers, and research associates at the HCU who are conducting research in architecture and at its interfaces.

The workshops are planned as one-day events and are financially supported by the Research Initiative Architecture to the following extent:

● Travel and accommodation costs for two external guests
● Fee (250€) for two external guests
● If applicable, travel costs for external doctoral students / postdocs who present their research projects
● Catering for about 10-20 workshop participants
● Printing costs
● Material costs, if applicable
 
In the selection process, concept sketches are collected that suggest a methodological and content-related focus for a workshop. The workshops will be organized and conducted by the contributors with the support of the Research Initiative Architecture. The results of the workshops are to be documented and made available to the participants.
 
The Open Call addresses PhD students / researchers / research associates of the HCU who are conducting research in architecture and connected fields.
The submitted abstracts should include the following information:

● Short presentation of the methodological and content focus of the scientific-artistic research projects in regard to the planned content / methodological focus of the workshop
● Elaboration and short description of the content/methodical focus for the workshop and its relevance for scientific-artistic research in architecture
● Proposal for two external guests and up to two additional doctoral candidates / postdoc; brief description of their work and relevance to the workshop
● Draft time and procedure plan with topic setting*  
● Planned workshop date
 
Concept abstracts (max. 2 pages) for 2020 can be submitted to sara.lusic@hcu-hamburg.de
