Workshop
sept—7–15


       Future eating, future drinking, future love, future commuting, future dressing, shopping, working – what will our everyday life be like in the future? An aging population, artificially grown meat, a ban on plastics and further increased mobility? What role will architecture and design play in this context?

The Laboratory will look into possible near futures through an exploration of our social, cultural, spatial and technological present. The workshops will be run by experts from different fields and participants will develop focused narratives about our life tomorrow by addressing today’s challenges in the realm of everyday life.

Technical input will include structured writing, model and image making. A series of field trips will give participants the opportunity to explore centres of innovation in and around Stuttgart.

The laboratory will be based at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design, one of the oldest and biggest art schools in Germany sited adjacent to the Weissenhof Estate. Constructed in 1927 by architects such as Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius amongst others, it was an experimental prototype for future ways of living and a showcase for a new of architectural movement later known as the international style. 100 years on, the future of building is once again high on the Stuttgart’s agenda, hosting its second International Building Exhibition (IBA) in 2027.

To conclude this Visiting School, we will hold a public presentation as well as an exhibition and publication of the work.

Fahim and Marianne Müller are Programme Heads of the AA Visiting School Stuttgart︎.
