Mental map for future architects
An journey through the possible fields of a future architecture.

This project explores the abstract idea of a future architecture by laying out a mental map. In order too fully understand this map, the future architect needs to experience it as holistic as possible. The future architectis set in the role of an expedition member, all set to explore such unknown conceptual territory.
The map leads the future architectthrough five distinct conceptual areas: Everyday Gaze, Collected Language, The Ambitious Amateur, Inhabited Compositions and Local Communality.

Each field comes down to a specific positionon how to engage with the build environment. While wandering through these areas, the future architect comes across different experiences. Each one relates to the five themes and serves as acase study for future designs, methods and practices.

Considered together these experiences provide a rather inspiring than suggestive basis for future architects to develop individual and more contoured notions of a future architecture.


The area of ‚Everyday Gaze’ is your starting point to develop a notion of a future architecture. It can be described as an observational practice of the existing world. Like a flaneur in the city, you perceive reality with a fresh view. Curiosity and fieldwork is the starting point for future architects who want to perceive reality holistically. . Based on yourindividual backgrounds and experiences you start relating to social and physical entities which may appear circumstantial at first sight.

In ‚Collected Language‘ you are driven on the pursuit of a bricoleur: a collector, who is creating on the reconfiguration and repositioning of the found and the existing. Like Robinson Crusoe, who’s world and foremost mindset is being formed and materialized by the leftovers of his remaining cultural background and the new findings that the island is presenting him day by day. Out of this pattern you create a new language, that is the foundations for further interventions and spatial production.

As ‚The Ambitious Amateur‘ you are ready to make your hands dirty to fulfill your architectural agenda. With no or little knowledge you put himself in the role of the creator of your immediate surrounding. In this position you question given ways of practice. Out of this lack of professional attitude, new solutions and details emerge. A more specific answer to the given task emerges.

The field of ‚Inhabited Compositions‘ describes your position towards the relationship of materials, construction, space and its use. Within a theater of everyday life, you see the situations not as mere collages, but inhabited spaces that can be occupied by its users and adapted to their personal needs.

‚Local Communality‘ is on common behaviors and spatial practice. New forms of living together emerge out of a shared authorship. Physical space becomes the backdrop of the everyday life. The process of designing includes existing buildings, existing townscapes, the people who live there, the locality and the surrounding architecture. Circumstances emerge, where encounters and lifestyles occur by chance. Thus leading towards a spatial practice of architecture that link people, things and locality
