Our own university, the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences, is planning to build a top-class research and technology centre at its site in Köthen and is asking architecture students from the DIA to develop ideas for it. The campus consists of two parts: First, an Interdisciplinary Research Centre for Sustainable Food Production (InFonaL) and, secondly, the Central German Algae Research Centre (MAZ). Food production and nutrition issues are urgent worldwide. Every ninth person in the world goes hungry, although the world´s agriculture produces a surplus of 33% in total. Apart from the imbalance between different regions, one of the reasons is the inefficient use of resources in production and processing technologies. Nutrition is changing significantly. Food should become more valuable and healthier, of the highest quality and meet individual needs such as "vegetarian" or "vegan". The fight against climate change requires that current production, recycling and packaging technologies be made more resource-, CO2- and energy-efficient. The InFonal research centre is dealing with these enormous tasks for the future. The Central German Algae Centre is also making a contribution to this, because algae can play a significant role in feeding the world in the future. But the field of application for algae is far wider. In construction, they are used as algae facades to generate energy. They are natural resources for new materials that can replace plastics. In the chemical, medical and cosmetics industries, they replace chemical raw materials with natural ones. A breathtaking field of research. The theme of the studio is how such high-tech research can find adequate expression in the architecture of the building. How does the building correlate with its contents? Conservation of resources, the avoidance of waste, the saving of CO2 emissions, the use of renwable energies and materials are topics just as much in food production as in the architecture of our time. Another focus of the studio is the question of how architecture can support interdisciplinary research. Today, new ideas and inventions are no longer created in the study room of a brilliant scientist, but in the cooperation of different disciplines. This requires an open architecture that stimulates exchange of ideas and information. How to develop distinctive architecture for the future in the interplay of functional and technical requirements and exciting new ideas will be the challenge of this studio. It is about strategies and methods to develop narratives, to trigger associations. It is about spatial constellations and material. It is about the holistic consideration of architecture in relation to its content.
