Sommerbäder als Bauaufgabe der Gartenarchitektur von 1900 bis 1945

Christoph, Johannes (2020)

Der Typus der Sommerbäder (Freibäder) fand im Forschungsgebiet der jüngeren Gartengeschichte bisher wenig Beachtung, was dazu führte, dass heute viele historische Freibäder von Überformung, Verlust und unsachgemäßer Sanierung bedroht sind. Als Hauptgrund dafür wurde ein fehlendes Bewusstsein für die Qualität und Quantität sowie den kultur- und bauhistorischen Wert identifiziert. Ziel dieser Arb...

Hybrid environments for universities

Ninnemann, Katja ; Liedtke, Bettina ; den Heijer, Alexandra ; Gothe, Kerstin ; Loidl-Reisch, Cordula ; Nenonen, Suvi ; Nestler, Jonathan ; Tieva, Åse ; Wallenborg, Christian (2020)

This publication is the result of an international and interdisciplinary expert meeting at Technische Universität Berlin, in March 2020. The aim of the expert meeting was to collaboratively write and publish a book, within five days, on the central question: Which organizational structures and processes at universities support a strategic as well as innovative campus development? As experts wi...

Landscape architecture and the time factor

Colwill, Simon, Christopher (2019-09)

The central aim of this research project was to develop monitoring methods to assist landscape architects, clients and contractors in identifying and diagnosing (diagnosis) weak points and vulnerabilities in built landscape works, thus avoiding them in new projects (prognosis). The research also focused on developing optimisation, prevention and protection strategies for the weaknesses identifi...

Eventisierungsdruck. Nachhaltige Nutzung öffentlicher Freiräume als Veranstaltungsorte – am Beispiel Berlin

Jung, Birte (2019)

Öffentliche Freiflächen, unter anderem Plätze, Straßen oder Grünflächen, werden zunehmend als Veranstaltungsorte genutzt. Dies hat teilweise negative ökologische, sozio-kulturelle und ökonomische Auswirkungen auf den Freiraum und die Umgebung. Städtische Freiräume werden infolge eines zunehmenden Eventisierungsdrucks häufig fehlgenutzt oder übernutzt und in ihrer Qualität beeinträchtigt. Der Ge...

Digital Communication of Knowledge for Academic Design-Build Initiatives

Colwill, Simon (2016)

Academic Design-Build Studios engage in diverse projects throughout the world. They are often highly complex and involve numerous stakeholders of different disciplines and cultures. They therefore rely on effective communication between all parties throughout all phases of the project cycle. Digital technology offered by the worldwide web allows new means of communication and for immense amount...

Use and Abuse: Reading the Patina of User Actions in Public Space

Colwill, Simon (2018)

One of the most aggressive agents influencing change to built landscapes is the user. This usage is influenced by many factors such as the activities and functions available, climatic factors, the time of day, the day of the week and seasonal variations. In structural terms, usage is a form of mechanical loading which can be static or dynamic and exerts force upon the structure. Repeated cycles...

Climate and Decay: The impact of the urban climate on built landscape

Time, Design and Construction: Learning from Change to Built Landscapes Over Time

Colwill, Simon (2016)

This paper discusses landscape construction teaching methods and a research project at the TU-Berlin focusing on change to built landscapes through time. The research is based on the hypothesis that it is possible to optimise design, detailing, construction and maintenance techniques by monitoring and evaluating projects at regular intervals after completion. The processes of change highlight d...

The Root of the Problem: Addressing the Conflicts between Spontaneous Vegetation and Built Landscape

Colwill, Simon (2018)

Built landscapes are under relentless attack from both spontaneous urban vegetation (plants that colonise naturally without cultivation) and the gradual encroachment (spreading) of existing plantings onto adjacent surfaces. The location, spread and rate of this growth is highly influenced by microclimatic factors, the availability of soil and propagules, and the frequency of disturbance. Sponta...

On-site learning

Colwill, Simon (2019-03-04)

This chapter discusses landscape construction teaching methods that focus on learning through on-site learning activities. These student assignments use built landscape works as the source of enquiry and learning.

Kommunales Grünflächenmanagement in Nordrhein-Westfalen

Wilms, Tobias (2019)

Die heutigen inhaltlichen Aufgaben des kommunalen Grünflächenmanagements sind vielfältig und erfordern daher einen differenzierten Blick auf die anzuwendenden organisatorischen Rahmenbedingungen. Die Grünflächenpflege wird oft als freiwillige Leistung der Daseinsvorsorge eingestuft und finanziell nicht ausreichend berücksichtigt. Die Orientierung an betriebswirtschaftlichen Benchmarks schwächt ...

Reading Patina: Learning from the contextual change of built landscape architecture elements over time in Berlin

Colwill, Simon Christopher (2019)

This practice orientated cumulative PhD thesis is based on the hypothesis that it is possible to optimise design, detailing, construction and maintenance techniques by monitoring and evaluating the development of landscape architecture projects at regular intervals after completion. The aim is to enhance the performance of future projects by analysing the weak points and vulnerabilities of exis...

Reading Patina: Catalogue of weak points and vulnerabilities

Colwill, Simon Christopher (2019)

The research results benefit all stakeholders in the field of landscape architecture by generating a breadth of new knowledge that can be used to enhance the design, construction and maintenance of landscape architecture works. The main results of this research are the resulting monitoring methods for assessing weak points, vulnerabilities and general performance of built landscape elements in ...
