Out Of Office adding value in Urban Design Competition in Germany….
April 9, 2013
In co -creation with Frits van Dongen (Head Government Architect) & Patrick Koschuch from ‘van Dongen – Koschuch’ Architects and Planners + Andrea Huhn from Andreas Huhn Architects (www.andreashuhn.com) Sam Colijn was invited to participate in the workshop ‘Inner city Pforzheim’.
The question was to come up with a future vision on re- designing Pforzheim’s innercity.
Our conclusion: it is not only a question of urbanism but the focus should be primarily on programming and transformation, in order to shape Pforzheim’s new identity.
The up coming year we will be working on:
1. Programming and transforming postwar architecture and urban space into new (design) ideas.
2. Finding the right ingredients and its balance, supporting a 24/7 dynamic, unique and sustainable city life.
3. Finding answers to why and how Inhabitants, Consumers, New Business Entrepreneurs etc will connect to Pforzheim in the (near) future.
4. Characteristics of a brand DNA (identity) for Pforzheim.
Please contact Sam@outofoffice.cc if you are a master mind regarding the future of Cities.
We are more than happy to invite you in our upcoming workshop (beginning of May) and exchange viewpoints!
