"Living the Region" DAM Workshop

In November 2017 URBED were delighted to be invited to take part in the DAM- Lab workshop “Living the Region” at the Frankfurt Hypermotion fair. The workshop was organised by the Deutsches Architekturmuseum (DAM) and designed as live project taking place within the fair itself.

URBED were one of five teams and were joined by AWP from Paris, LOLA Landscape Architects from Rotterdam, KCAP Architects&Planners from Rotterdam and feld72 from Vienna.

Over three days we were tasked with developing a vision for the future of the Frankfurt RheinMain region, bringing together innovative housing and transport solutions. At the same time we also had to illustrate how this future vision might manifest itself at a smaller scale, by designing a conceptual urban quarter based on a fictitious town within the region.

We had great deal of fun working on this project, sharing the workshop space with our international colleagues and exploring Frankfurt in the evenings. The workshop culminated in a short presentation by each of the teams, but the project doesn't end there! All five teams are now working up their concepts to be displayed in an exhibition in the DAM next year. We look forward to sharing our ideas and seeing what the other teams have developed.
