What exactly does communal living and building mean? How did this form of coexistence take shape and which innovative current examples do we know? The exhibition »Together! The New Architecture of the Collective« opens with a panel discussion featuring the exhibition curators – Ilka and Andreas Ruby of Ruby Press and Daniel Niggli of the architecture studio EM2N – as well as Angelika Fitz, director of Architekturzentrum Wien, and Kieran Long, director of ArkDes (Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design). The discussion will address the possibilities of a new type of architecture based on communality and participation. Free admission, registration: email@example.com
The scarcity and expense of housing is continually on the rise. In recent years, new forms of communal living and building have emerged all over the world in response to this challenge. The exhibition presents the most innovative examples, illustrates new living typologies and forms of participation, and introduces architects of the movement, including ON Design Partners, pool Architekten, Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter as well as ifau – institute for applied urbanism, Jesko Fezer and Heide & von Beckerath. »Together! The New Architecture of the Collective« also draws attention to precursors of the present trend, from utopian settlements of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, to social housing projects in the 1920s, to protest movements from the 1960s to the 1980s, when the inhabitants of many major cities sought alternatives to housing shortages and real estate speculation. The exhibition features a secret revolution in contemporary architecture, examining the social and economic ideals that serve as its foundation.
Who doesn’t have one in their basement or out in the garden? The cheap white plastic chair is everywhere. In terms of sales figures, it probably qualifies as the most popular furniture item worldwide, but is only rarely considered in a design context. The current exhibition at the Schaudepot shows how numerous designers and artists have engaged with the chair in recent years. A workshop gives participants the opportunity to do the same, deconstructing and experimenting with the monobloc chair and coming up with new functions. Those who have a monobloc at home are welcome to bring it to the workshop. Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org, € 25,00 per person
Most people live alone in an apartment or share a house as a family. Does it have to be like that? In this guided tour of the exhibition »Together! The New Architecture of the Collective« we learn about new forms of communal living and contemplate how we will likely live together in the future. Following the tour we will create our own futuristic cities and homes. For children aged 6 to 12, € 7,00 per child, registration: email@example.com
Stone belongs to the matrix of materials that have followed Humanity’s development since the dawn of time. RESISTANCE presents projects created by 10 international architects/studios: Álvaro Siza, Amanda Levete, Bijoy Jain, Souto de Moura, ELEMENTAL, Carrilho da Graça, Mia Hägg, Paulo David, Studio MK27 and Vladimir Djurovic, curated by Guta Moura Guedes, president of the ‘experimentadesign’ research platform. One of the main properties of the portuguese stones selected is their specific high level of mechanical resistance; on the other hand, there is also the idea that expanding architecture’s territories of action through creativity, and adopting new perspectives from different fields, can be a way of resisting the banality and decrease in quality that has become evident in so many fronts of contemporary architecture.The opening includes a debate with Amanda Levete, João Luís Carrilho da Graça, Mia Hägg and Vladimir Djurovic, moderated by Mateo Kries, Director of the Vitra Design Museum, followed by a cocktail.

Free admission
Especially in urban environments, it has become very popular in recent years to convert unused open spaces into community gardens, which are planted and maintained by the entire neighbourhood. In conjunction with the exhibition »Together!«, visitors can now experience this trend for themselves. This workshop allows family members of all ages to help design the area in front of the museum as an outdoor extension of the exhibition. Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org, free admission

Collective architecture brings the public realm into the domestic sphere – and understands residential spaces as a public good. How do private and public intersect here in a new way? These are some of the issues to be discussed by Pier Vittorio Aureli, the renowned architect, Yale School of Architecture professor and co-founder of the urban planning office and think tank Dogma, who will be joined by Andreas Ruby, curator of the exhibition »Together!«. The talk is moderated by Anh-Linh Ngo, publisher of the German magazine for urban planning, architecture and design ARCH+. The event is part of the series ARCH+ features initiated by Siedle.
