nextG — werkraumschule building days with Serge Lunin
on 22 June 2018 at 5 pm in the Werkraumhaus, Andelsbuch
Façade installation from 23 June – 21 October 2018
nextG — presents the next generation of craftspeople and their works – in this case a building project by the first and second year of the Werkraumschule in cooperation with the Swiss crafts and design teacher Serge Lunin.
Around sixty young people are building a three-dimensional timber structure which, borrowing from the summer exhibition Alphabet of Life – Nature’s Learning Workshop (23 June – 6 October 2018), is oriented in its constructional principles on the architecture of the Werkraumhaus. The temporary construction under the projecting roof of the building by Peter Zumthor is simultaneously “nesting place” for the new generation to hatch their ideas.
Please note that the event will be documented in film and photographs and that footage and images in analogue or digital form may be used in the context of the event for public relations actions and archiving.
Opening hours Werkraumhaus, Tues – Sat 10 am – 6 pm Hof 800, 6866 Andelsbuch

What design principles might we learn from nature that can be applied to
designing, producing and managing life in a resource-efficient and sustainable
way? The exhibition tells the story of a tree’s eco-system and thereby
demonstrates nature’s strategies and patterns that have been envolving for
more than 3.8 thousand million years. The audience is introduced to the
framework and the practice of biomimicry by learning from ordinary and
innovative applications in various crafts and design professions.
This transdisciplinary exhibition project is underpinned by extensive
collaborative research and oriented toward educating all stakeholders. Thus,
the exhibition brings together science, crafts and artistic production in an
inspiring learning lab for the whole family.
