B.I.S.S. Baltic International Summer School 2018

The fourth Baltic International Summer School 2018 (B.I.S.S.) at the HCU in Hamburg takes part in a continuous academic exchange between disciplines of the built environment and presents a broader perspective on education and practice in the context of interdisciplinarity and interculturallity.

The B.I.S.S. focusses on the collaboration between architects and engineers and related disciplines as urban design, urban planning, metropolitan culture and performing arts. In addition to the work in small interdisciplinary and internationally mixed groups, several public lectures and discussions with well-known experts, as well as guests from politics and public will take place during the nine-day workshop.

The summer school has been taking place at the HCU for the last three years bringing together participants from the leading universities in the Baltic Sea Region: from Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Russia and Germany. This year´s edition of the B.I.S.S. is the final one to be organized in Hamburg and it is going to be documented as a short film.

The professional reality is really interdisciplinary!

When city transformation and evolution starts, what are the tools for successful strategies for urban interventions? How is the digital planning to digital fabrication process?  How engage are the new professionals? And how could this influence the future of the bridge design?

These and other questions were analyzed by more than 60 students representing various disciplines of built environment and working together in international and interdisciplinary mixed project groups within the fourth Baltic International School (B.I.S.S.) – “think the link”. The B.I.S.S. launched by the HafenCity University Hamburg together with eight international partner universities from the Baltic Sea region aims to develop, test and implement new ways of the interdisciplinary teaching, learning and designing as well as search for ties and correlations between experiences, cultures, cities, in particular around the high-speed infrastructural joint "Billhorner Brückenstraße / Billhorner Röhrendamm", will be the stage for the topic "Beyond Urban Flows - Architecture and Engineering for Transition Places".

This publication serves as a source book for fresh and unconventional urban development and intervention in harbor cities as well as an inspiration for successful interdisciplinary working, teaching and learning. On top, it gives a full documentation of the B.I.S.S. and expert comments on the 15 interdisciplinary projects that were designed during the ten day workshop in Hamburg in 2016.

The motto „think the link“ indicates the interdisciplinary approach searching for ties and correlation between experiences, cultures, cities and objects of the built environment. The area east of Hamburg`s city center, in particular around the high-speed infrastructural joint „Billhorner Brückenstraße / Billhorner Röhrendamm“ will be the stage for the topic 2018 “Beyond Urban Flows - Architecture and Engineering for Transition Places”.

The project groups are asked to deal with the development of this specific area with a high importance for Hamburg: entrance to the city and at the same time a high density of major infrastructural elements. The main questions to be addressed here are how such transition places can be re-shaped, in a mid and long-term perspective, in order to bring to them more inner-city life qualities; how this area can become more attractive to pedestrians; how borders and limitations can be overcome? Within the workshop potentials and effects will be explored on all four levels: technical, functional, aesthetical and social. Thus, not only challenges typical for Hamburg will be addressed, but also parallels and the transferability of solutions to the other harbor cities from the Baltic Sea Region will be sought.

Within the project a wide range of disciplinary and thematic focusses shall be possible. Discovery and trial of methodology of the participating disciplines in their creative work will be background and source of the Summer School.

Joint identification of the existing problems, examination of various methods and elaboration of possible solutions will strengthen the cross-functional competences of planners and designers in built environment referring to their different academic and cultural background.

The duration of the Summer School is 9 days.

Friday 10. 08. – Saturday 18. 08. 2018

 

The workshop will manly take place in the premises of the HCU. The framework will provide keynote lectures on Friday the 10th, Sunday the 12th and Tuesday the 14th of August as well as a big public final presentation and party on Saturday the 18th of August.

BeInterBaltic

The project "Intersections in built environment: promoting interdisciplinary higher education in the Baltic Sea Region (BeInterBaltic)" is an international cooperation project funded within the ERASMUS+ programme of strategic partnerships and coordinated by the Hafencity University Hamburg. It has duration of three years (2015-2018) and aims to enhance the quality and relevance of higher education in Baltic Sea Region by improving and adapting the current curricula of built environment disciplines of participating universities. 

The thematic approach of the project BeInterBaltic focuses the COMPEXITY of current urban conditions, actual chances and challenges; the traditional division of disciplines is no longer adequate. For example too often engineering focuses only on technical-economic aspects and architecture only on the aesthetical artistic ones, thus the holistic approach is neglected. Also many major projects struggle, like the new railway station for Stuttgart 21 or the philharmonics in Hamburg. Among others part of the problem is that mistakes are quite often detected too late and responsibilities are hard to define and assign.

Thus this COMPLEXITY requires cooperation and understanding between the disciplines. The basic for these needs to be implemented in education and a new TEACHING MODULE in higher education of built environment becomes essential. Also individual disciplines do not have the necessary capacity to develop the comprehensive understanding alone therefore interdisciplinary approaches are needed in order to frame and address the complexity of the praxis of contemporary built environment in general and the intersection between architecture and engineering in particular.

The project BeInterBaltic aims:

(1) to develop and test new teaching methods and formats,
(2) to equip the students with the interdisciplinary and intercultural competences and skills,
(3) to strengthen an interactive dialogue between the universities and non-academic sector and
(4) to promote and increase the cooperation between the universities in Baltic Sea Region.

The project consortium consists of 7 higher education institutions from six countries:

•  HafenCity University Hamburg, DE (Project Coordinator)
•  Gdansk University of Technology, PL
•  Tallinn University of Technology, EE 
•  The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, DK
•  Technical University of Denmark, DK 
•  Chalmers University of Technology, SE
•  Aalto University, FI

The project BeInterBaltic is structured in four interlinked and parallel progressing work packages (WPs).

Within the WP1 successful project implementation and dissemination of the project outcomes will be ensures.

The aim of the WP2 is to bring the teachers of disciplines of built environment together in order to evaluate existing and develop new methods as well as formats of interdisciplinary teaching. These methods and formats will include (1) physical and digital modelling, (2) drawing and film and (3) rhetorics and poetics, all of them focusing on chances and challenges of the build environment. Within this WP a workshop for teachers will be conducted and methodological guidelines for teachers will be developed.

WP3 includes a paradigm shift from the methods of teaching towards the students and their motivation of understanding. To intensify these motivation different aspects of designing in the context of the build environment and at the intersection of the disciplines will be applied: (1) analysing through patterns, (2) gaining insides through “hands-on” and (3) performing through social interaction. These aspects depend on another and develop the examination of the relationship between the designer and the design. Each of these steps will be addressed in one of the three summer schools which are the core activity in this WP. Within this WP the teaching material for a new teaching module will be jointly developed.

The AIM of WP 4 is to point out the relevance of this interdisciplinary project for society. To meet the requirements of society students need to have (1) a critical and curious mind-set, (2) a naughty and ambitious attitude and (3) an inclusive and competent responsibility. The output of the WP4 is to create a digital platform for the interdisciplinary and intercultural exchange between the students, teaching staff, industry as well as other stakeholders from non-university society. For that purpose a thematic cluster “Intersections of Built Environment in Baltic Sea Region” will be developed. The cluster will serve to all project target groups and strengthen the active cooperation between universities and countries. Furthermore the cluster will support mobility, joint teaching and research activities as well as provide new research topics. A multiplier event in Tallinn is going to be organized in order to disseminate the project outputs and to promote stronger dialogue between the academic and non-academic society.

Große Bauprojekte haben in jüngerer Zeit vor allem als Misserfolge Beachtung erlangt. Gleichzeitig setzen sie aufgrund ihrer Komplexität in vielen Fällen, und häufig sogar unabhängig von ihrem ökonomischen Erfolg, neue technische und organisationale Standards und können die Verbreitung von Innovationen befördern. Das Forschungsprojekt beleuchtet diese weitgehend unbeachtete Seite von Großprojekten als Innovationstreiber in der Bauwirtschaft. Innovationen in der Bauwirtschaft entstehen, so die Ausgangsthese des Projekts, durch das Zusammenspiel von Kundenansprüchen, gestalterischem Ehrgeiz, den technischen Anforderungen des Bauwerks und der organisationalen Integration im Projekt. Ziel ist es anhand von sechs Fallstudien und unter Verschränkung sozialwissenschaftlicher mit ingenieurwissenschaftlicher Perspektive zu entschlüsseln, wie die genannten Faktoren zusammenwirken. In dem vom Arbeitsgebiet Entwurf und Analyse von Tragwerken bearbeiteten Teilprojekt wird insbesondere der Entstehungprozess von technischen Innovationen und deren Verknüpfung zum Projektzyklus untersucht.

Notification of Acceptance: 09.03.2018

Full Paper Submission: 06.04.2018

The symposium provides a forum for PhD students and reserachers who are working in all fields of science related to the built environment and are interested in presenting their work to an interdisciplinary audience of experienced researchers from the Baltic Sea Region. The focus of the symposium is on innovation through interdisciplinary collaboration in the process of designing and developing of the built environment.  Its aim is to support interdisciplinary and international communication between young scientists to facilitate collaborative research, networking, and knowledge transfer on the interdisciplinary research within the disciplines of the built environment. 

Participants are highly encouraged to reflect on their work from an interdisciplinary perspective. This includes a reflection on their research question as well as on their methodology in the context of the interdisciplinary scientific research. The potential of the research outcomes for further interdisciplinary collaboration or the potential of the used methodology for further implementation in interdisciplinary context should be identified and specifically addressed in the submitted abstract.

The parallel sessions serve as a discussion platform with individual presentations and allow for constructive feedback and interaction between the young researchers and the experienced ones. The symposium will be opened by a keynote lecture and will be closed with a plenary discussion.

Accepted papers will be distributed to the conference attendees and will be peer-reviewed after the symposium. There will be a digital conference publication with an ISBN number (conference proceedings). Further pbulication opportunities are in negotiation and will be announced soon.

B.I.S.S. Baltic International Summer School 2017

The third Baltic International Summer School 2017 (B.I.S.S.) at the HCU in Hamburg aims at a continuous academic exchange and presents a broader perspective on education and practice in the context of disciplines of built environment. The B.I.S.S. 2017 is a part of the project BeInterBaltic which is implemented within the ERASMUS+ program strategic partnerships.

By using common resources in the Baltic Sea Region pro­ t will be gained on several levels:

academic benefit t by exchange of knowledge

cultural benefit by social and intellectual exchange

personnel benefit  by communication

spatial benefit using „short cuts“ over the Baltic Sea

economic benefit developing synergies

The third B.I.S.S. will be followed by an interested audience from the public, press, politics as well as national and international experts. This year, in order to keep focus in our international approach, the presence of the Copenhagen architect Tina Saaby is trying to be confirmed.

The professional reality is really interdisciplinary!

When city transformation and evolution starts, what are the tools for successful strategies for urban interventions? How is the digital planning to digital fabrication process?  How engage are the new professionals? And how could this influence the future of the bridge design?

These and other questions were analyzed by more than 60 students representing various disciplines of built environment and working together in international and interdisciplinary mixed project groups within the second Baltic International School (B.I.S.S.) – “think the link”. The B.I.S.S. launched by the HafenCity University Hamburg together with eight international partner universities from the Baltic Sea region aims to develop, test and implement new ways of the interdisciplinary teaching, learning and designing as well as search for ties and correlations between experiences, cultures, cities, in particular around the infrastructural juncture along the Elbe Bridges, was chosen as the area to be explored and worked on for 2016´s “Hamburg 2030 – urban futures” topic.

This publication serves as a source book for fresh and unconventional urban development and intervention in harbor cities as well as an inspiration for successful interdisciplinary working, teaching and learning. On top, it gives a full documentation of the B.I.S.S. and expert comments on the 15 interdisciplinary projects that were designed during the ten day workshop in Hamburg in 2016.

Find the BISS 2015 Book here on the pages of our library.

The motto „think the link“ indicates the interdisciplinary approach searching for ties and correlation between experiences, cultures, cities and objects of the built environment.

The area east of Hamburg`s city center, in particular around the infrastructural joint „Elbbrücken“ will be the stage for the topic 2017 “City Elements. Infrastructure and networks shaping Harbour Areas”. The project groups are asked to deal with on-site design and project production in the selected area, as model for other harbor cities in the Baltic Sea Region and thus the participants of the BISS. The interdisciplinary focus will be highly reinforced by the PhD symposium lecture in the seven day in the program. Multiple proposals will be asking questions of the city daily project process solutions including “people and goods”, “complexity” environment”, “information” and more, as main goal of the workshop.

Hereby we want to address not just typical problems of Hamburg, but these that are characteristic for most harbor cities. Within the project a wide range of disciplinary and thematic focusses shall be possible. Discovery and trial of methodology of the participating disciplines in their creative work will be background and source of the Summer School.

Joint identi­fication of the existing problems, examination of various methods and elaboration of possible solutions and presented as a potential concept will strengthen the cross-functional competences of the participants referring to their different academic and cultural background.

The duration of the Summer School is 9 days.

Friday 11. 08. – Saturday 19. 08. 2017

The workshop will mainly take place in the premises of the HCU. The framework will provide a keynote lecture on Friday the 11th as well as a big public ­final presentation and party on Saturday the 19th.

KUNST & TECHNIK

Interdisziplinäres Seminar und Exkursion in Kooperation von BIW, KM und der Chalmers Universität, Göteborg.

Erarbeiten eines Kurzfilms zu einer herausragenden Brückenkonstruktion in der Schweiz.

Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema "Brücke" im Kontext

Kunst und Brücken stehen im Fokus des gleichnamigen Seminars, das sich als interdisziplinärer Austausch zwischen Bauingenieurwesen und Kultur der Metropole versteht.
Ziel des Seminars ist der Dialog der beiden Disziplinen und ein daraus resultierender Kurzfilm, der in Kleingruppen erarbeitet werden soll. Dabei werden Brücken sowohl aus Sicht des Bauingenieurswesen, insbesondere in Hinblick auf die Konstruktion und die Tragfähigkeit von Brücken, als auch aus kulturwissenschaftlicher Sicht untersucht. Resultat der Exkursion sind dann Kurzfilme zu diesem Thema.

Um einen fundierten theoretischen Austausch beider Disziplinen zu ermöglichen, wird es während des Sommersemesters diverse Veranstaltungen zum Thema geben. Die Exkursion findet dann vom 28. September bis zum 2. Oktober 2015 statt.
Ziel wird der Kanton Graubünden (CH) sein, in welchem wir zahlreiche bekannte Brücken besichtigen und kennenlernen werden. Hier wird es eine von Jürg Conzett (conzett bronzini gartmann AG) geführte Wanderung zu eigenen und anderen Brücken geben. Zudem wird es zwei Zusammentreffen mit Studierenden der Chalmers University Göteborg (Schweden) im Rahmen der Exkursion geben.
Weitere Gäste sollen die Exkursion bereichern.

Da die Teilnehmerzahl auf 10 Studierende je Disziplin beschränkt ist, bitten wir um ein Motivationsschreiben von maximal einer Seite, auf der Sie neben ihrer Motivation und Begeisterung für das Thema "Brücke", auch ihre Erfahrungen mit Film darstellen und auf ihre Kompetenzen dahingehend verweisen.

Einsendeschluss für das Motivationsschreiben: 24. April 2015, 12pm an: 
kathrin.eitel(at)hcu-hamburg.de für KM
und 
sabrina.gieron(at)hcu-hamburg.de für BIW

Das Auswahlverfahren findet in der Woche darauf statt. 
Sobald dieser Prozess beendet ist, melden wir uns zeitnah bei Ihnen.

Informationen zur Anmeldung über ahoi folgen in Kürze.

B.I.S.S. Baltic International Summer School 2015

The First Baltic International Summer School 2015 (BISS) at the HCU in Hamburg will open up a continuous academic exchange between architects and engineers and present a broader perspective on education and practice in the context of related disciplines. 

By using common resources in the Baltic Sea Region profit will be gained on several levels: 

academic benefit by exchange of knowledge
cultural benefit by social and intellectual exchange
personnel benefit by communication
spatial benefit using „short cuts“ over the Baltic sea
economic benefit developing synergies

The motto „think the link“ indicates the interdisciplinary approach searching for ties and correlation between experiences, cultures, cities and objects of the built environment.
The area east of Hamburg`s city centre, in particular around the infrastrucural joint „Elbbrücken“ will be the stage for the topic 2015 “at – over – on the water”. The project groups are asked to deal with water as both junction and quality as well as barrier and separation. Hereby we want to address not just a typical problem of Hamburg, but one that is characteristic for most harbour cities and thus the participants of the BISS. Within the project a wide range of disciplinary and thematic focusses shall be possible. Discovery and trial of methodology of the participating disciplines in their creative work will be background and source of the Summer School.

Every student will experience the iterative creative process and pass following phases:

focus - - - analysis - - - variance - - - discourse

Joint identification of the existing problems, examination of various methods and elaboration of possible solutions will strengthen the cross-functional competences of architects and engineers referring to their different academic and cultural background.

The B.I.S.S. will take place in Hamburg at HafenCity University.
There will be a keynote lecture on Friday the 21th as well as a big final presentation and party on Saturday the 29th.

• Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland 

• Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden 

• Royal Academy of Fine Arts Copenhagen, Denmark 

• Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark

• Gdansk University of Technology, Gdansk, Poland

• Saint Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Saint Petersburg, Russia

• ITMO University, Saint Petersburg, Russia

• HafenCity University Hamburg, Germany 

Prospectively more universities from the Baltic Sea Region will join the B.I.S.S. in the future.

About 65 students, 12 students per city will participate in the First B.I.S.S., so that both the disciplines and the participating universities are equally represented.
The Baltic International Summer School fucusses on the intersection between architects and engineers, but students from related disciplines as industrial design, urban planning, fine arts and performing arts are also very welcome to apply. Exemplary composition of the 12 students: Architecture: IIII + Engineering: IIII + Others: IIII. The B.I.S.S. is designed for students preferably at Master’s level. Nevertheless students at Bachelor’s and PhD level can also submit their applications.

In order to follow the lectures, work in multinational groups and participate actively in the discussions, students should have a good command of the English language. 

A continuous scientific, organizational and cultural exchange will be ensured by working in small interdisciplinary and international teams. Several formats are going to be applied: 

  • keynotes: Thematic impulses will be given by a number of well-known experts. 
  • mentoring system: The whole group of students will be divided in work groups of 10-16 students each
    guided by one teacher. Within these groups, smaller working groups of 4 students will be constituted. 
  • input: Regular inputs by one of the participating professors will open up a work day. 
  • group work: Students work on their project in groups of 4 following their own thematic focus.
    Small excursions will complement the studies. 
  • presentation: Presentations will be commented by a number of present experts. 
  • guest critics: Critics by external experts from different disciplines will promote the work flow.
  • final public presentation: Guest from the press, the politics and local and international experts as well as participating teachers will comment the projects on Saturday the 29th. It will be open to the public and followed by a farewell party.

Furthermore a special social program will be organized, where participants from different countries and disciplines can meet and have a great time together. Including welcome reception, thematic city walk with a picnic in a park at the start and a farewell party at the end. The city tour, developed by HCU students will show the City, remarkable buildings and structures and give a good overview about Hamburg, the HafenCity and the University itself. 

We are happy to present following lectures by inspiring protagonists and their individual point of view on the intersection of architecture and engineering.

Hamburg`s University of the Built Environment has installed a network of researchers, teachers and students from the Baltic Sea Region. With this year`s focus „at - over - on the water“ 65 students from eight renowned universities create social and urban links of two of Hamburg`s most developing districts - HafenCity and Rothenburgsort. Hence links not only emerge between districts and cities but also between countries and cultures in the Baltic Sea Region. The results ranging from artistic to architectural and engineering concepts are presented to an invited audience at the Finissage in presence of the B.I.S.S. patroness Katharina Fegebank , Second Mayor of the City of Hamburg and Senator for Science, Research and Equalities.
