mies_update - Study on Flexible Living

Following on from Mies van der Rohe’s ideas of “the greatest freedom in the type of use” or “flowing space”, the project reinterprets the floor plans of his residential building “Weissenhof 14-20” in the Weissenhofsiedlung against the background of today’s techniques and materials. Typed, mobile furniture objects with expansive wall tires enable a wide variety of options with regard to the organization, the shaping and the atmosphere of space. While the hard wall shells accommodate technical infrastructures, the extendable pneumatic volumes can be freely deformed in 3 dimensions (as wall or furniture use) and additionally informed by means of new coatings (including heat, light or electrical conductivity). By dissolving the conventional room categories and hierarchies, such a “living” structure can be adapted to user needs in the short and long term.
