Neighbourhood’s Universities. Constructing, dwelling, researching and community building in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg WARSAW UNDER CONSTRUCTION 5
During the last five years, the abandoned building, a former public health office in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg has been transformed into a research laboratory enabling new forms and practices of education, dwelling, architecture and community building.
The Neighbourhoods University, a satellite of the HafenCity Universität, aims to study the urban, as a social, cultural and economic fabric on a 1:1 scale. Designing and building is understood as an iterative process of performative practices in permanent relation and negotiation within the neighbourhoods.
