M ARCH – T PIV WINTER 2017/2018
Typological Constellations of Multi-Service Centers
For the ‘project integrated research’ (PIV) the M-ARCH T studio investigates building types that are operating as local hubs offering a variety of programs such as civic functions, multi-service facilities and commercial units. Through the analysis of existing reference projects from the international context various spatial constellations between public and commercial programs are identified and evaluated according to their urban impact.
The reference projects serve as a template and diagram for the configuration of the programmatic components of the semester project ‘Tempelhof Center’.
The particular approach to typological investigations envisions the components of hybrid programmatic formations as vocabulary for the realization of a certain type of urbanity within the building.
The ‘city within the building’ or ‘Großform’, a term coined by Oswald Matthias Ungers, refers to the establishment of a urban system within the perimeter of the given project. What is the spatial syntax between various programmatic components? What is the relationship between the parts and the whole? How can we develop a building complex through relational design practice where program, space and structure are assembled according to reciprocal impacts?
By looking at typological constellations in selected reference projects the applied research of the PIV is also developing a catalogue of programmatic and spatial elements that serve as the basis for the development of future building typologies for multi-service centers.
