THEMA
Geodesign brings together creativity and knowledge in a model and communication driven spatial design process. Both technical and communicational challenges must be tackled: How to install a direct man-machine feedback loop? What are the restrictions for the designer’s degree of freedom in creativity, choice and finality? How to tackle uncertainty and ambiguity of model results? How to achieve an optimized collaboration between designers/planners and IT-specialists/ modellers?
 
In the first part of the seminar, the concept, theory and practice of Geodesign will be introduced and the students will analyze and present different geo-design approaches through case-studies as a basis for understanding and discussion. In the second part of the seminar, we will work redesigning the relationship between agriculture and urban development at the urban-rural fringe of Stuttgart. Combining design techniques with GIS tools and models for an iterative Geodesign process, the workshop task is to develop a vision and scenarios for an urbanized and at the same agricultural area on the Filder plateau. On their way to an integrative design, the groups will follow the idea of improving the performance of the urban-landscape pattern in terms of ecology, agricultural productivity and open space quality simultaneously.
 
ORGANISATION
The aims of this seminar are to get a deeper understanding of geo-design approaches and the problems related to their implementation, to gain knowledge and skills with regard to the inclusion of adapted and ecological aspects in urban-landscape design and to develop experiences and ideas concerning collaborative and model-based work practices and workflows as a core item in Geodesign.
