On 11th April, the organizers and project leaders of the initiative “Knowledge Creates Space” met with interested students and master students of the TU Dresden and the HfBK for the kick-off event in the Aktsaal on the Brühlsche Terrasse.
In the coming months, joint projects will be developed at the interfaces between theory, art, architecture and science, which at the end of the project phase will be made accessible to a broad university and city public through artistic-scientific interventions in urban space. At the kick-off event, Prof. Matthias Beckh opened up possibilities for projects on lightweight construction and weightlessness, Junior Professor Matthew McGinity on immersive media and virtual reality, Prof. Miriam Ackermann on orientation in public space via the ears in cooperation with the Palucca University of Dance Dresden, and Prof. Henning Haupt and his colleague Ludwig Kupfer on design and color as a material for architecture. Accompanied by workshops and consultations, the students and doctoral candidates from architecture, computer science and art will work together or individually on projects. In the winter semester of 2022/23, the public will have the opportunity not only to experience the results, but also to get in touch with the students and doctoral candidates, to understand processes, and to receive impulses for their own engagement with scientific topics. The curation of the results for a final exhibition is planned. The project was selected as part of the “TUD in Dialogue” initiative and will run until the end of the year..
