Modern educational recreation: Water, landscape and sports in architectural harmony

The Thuringian State Sports Association is planning to extend and convert the ‘SEZ Kloster’ in Saalfeld-Ebersdorf. For many years, the Water Sports and Adventure Education Centre has served as a recreational and educational centre for clubs and schools.

Currently an architecture competition is being held to obtain excellent architectural ideas for a new complex for the valuable pedagogical work undertaken there. Proposals should use the regional building material wood to create new building forms in a striking landscape and utilise new construction methods and building standards to demonstrate the concept of a ‘Building culture made in Thuringia’.

Cooperative mobility: New options for urban-rural public transport connections

How can we conserve resources at all levels in the urban-rural StadtLand of tomorrow? Nordhausen council, the SWG municipal housing association and Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences, along with numerous other local and regional participants, have come togehter in an exceptional process to find answers to these questions.

The open, collaborative process began with five public workshops in 2015 and 2016 on the topics of urban redevelopment, the transition to new sources of energy, recycling, mobility and communication, which brought together around 400 interested parties and representatives from education, research, local politics, business and administration. The results form the basis of a new strategy for the future of Nordhausen in which the sustainable use of resources is seen as a social goal involving all aspects of society, rather than merely as a technical challenge. Through the joint action of all partners, the intention is to minimise the consumption of raw materials and energy and to obtain them from renewable sources.

Since then, four thematic projects have developed for Nordhausen in different collaborative constellations: the environmentally-conscious conversion of the mass housing district of Nordhausen Nord, the experimental redensification of the Altendorfer Kirchviertel in the old town, the development of a sustainable mobility concept for the town and region, and the elaboration of climate and design guidelines as a new informal planning instrument.

Climate-Agri-Culture: Testbed for a climate-conscious, cooperative approach to landscape development

How can we find new ways of seeing and describing landscapes? How can we reimagine and re-evaluate the concept and image of the landscape? And how can landscape, and with it agriculture, be reconceived and redesigned from a sustainable perspective?

The Landwirtschaft Kannawurf Betriebsgesellschaft mbH and agrar-GmbH Oldisleben are working together with the IBA Thüringen and the Künstlerhaus Thüringen to develop a feasibility study for the ecologically, socially and economically sustainable development and aesthetic improvement of agricultural farmland. On behalf of the partners, Green4Cities from Vienna will design a set of guidelines for a new, climate-friendly 21st century cultural landscape on 1,500 hectares of future in Kannawurf.

Sustainable agriculture needs to be considered at multiple levels in order to adapt to climate change. In Kannawurf, different climatic landscape typologies will be developed with the help of a regional-scale agricultural product management approach to develop a model landscape in Thuringia. Concrete measures to reduce wind and water erosion, heat islands and surface temperatures by means of individually determined, new cultivation methods and cultures form the basis for a new landscape and cooperative agricultural product management principle. The intention is to create new regional links between agricultural products and their processing to increase the proportion of Thuringian raw materials in Thuringian food processing and thus improve local economic cycles. The plan is to implement the measures outlined in the mission statement in and around Kannawurf from 2021 onwards.

Baukultur and tourism: Waterfront architecture on the shores of Germany’s largest inland reservoir

Thuringia is most well-known among nature lovers for its hiking regions. The river valleys and meadowlands that characterise much of the countryside are comparatively unknown. In discussions on the rural qualities of Thuringia, the potential of such landscapes is frequently overlooked.

Over the past few years, the state, administrative districts and local municipalities have drawn up concerted strategies for developing the hilly Thüringer Wald as well as the so-called Thüringer Meer – waterside Thuringia – as sustainable tourism destinations. Building on this, the IBA Thüringen and the Stiftung Baukultur in Thüringen are working together with two investors to develop model projects for Germany’s largest reservoir, the Bleilochtalsperre. Following an open ideas competition ‘XS – New Models for Holiday Architecture’ held in 2018, two concepts were selected for developing into actual projects: a longhouse with a flexible floor plan that can accommodate different unit sizes and adapt to specific uses and topographies, and small-scale architectural units for the gradual conversion of a former wharf into a micro-resort.

The project aims to show that innovative ideas and good architecture can strengthen tourism and the regional economy in south Thuringia. Alongside the conventional holiday destinations, it proposes new forms of tourism that provide an authentic, refreshing experience of Thuringia by the sea.

Outpatient clinic and health kiosks: Cooperative health care in the country

Since 2011, the Landleben Foundation has been building a network of health, nursing and medical support in six municipalities in northern Thuringia. In 2017, the foundation’s pilot project ‘Landengel’ started as a healthcare networking platform: the ‘Landengel’ helpers drive senior citizens to medical appointments, organise trips or run games afternoons. Less stress and more time thanks to short distances is the project’s credo.

Just how short such distances should be, or how far apart they can be, is being trialled using bus stops converted into health kiosks. The idea is that doctors, nursing and health care providers, along with pharmacies and other service pro- viders work together with the Landengel under one roof. The Berlin architecture o ce Pasel-K Architects was commissioned in 2019 to develop a design manual for the health kiosks. Alongside a sheltered waiting area and public toilets, the kiosks should have a multi-purpose space. Each kiosk will be unique and made of wood. Traditional timber-frame structures are one possibility, as are a combination of digital fabrication and analogue construction or the re-use of building materials from demolished structures as a form of recycling or upcycling.

New uses for a former girls’ school: An independent cultural centre with global outlook

A former 19th century girls’ school in Gera’s city centre is gradually being converted into an international centre for art and culture. The Thüringer Landesmedienanstalt (TLM, Thuringian State Media Authority) and Gera Art School have already rented premises in the building, which also houses the New Gallery for Contemporary Art on the ground floor, run by Kultur in Mitteldeutschland (KIM, Culture in Central Germany), which owns the building.

The Häselburg is a model for the reactivation of disused existing buildings. It provides a new location for expanding and enhancing the pro le of cultural activities in Gera and East Thuringia. Burkhard Schlothauer, musician and musicologist, lives in Gera and is managing director of KIM. His goal is to provide both space and potential for the independent cultural scene in Gera to ourish. In January 2020, his wife, the art and cultural historian Dr Claudia Tittel, became head of the City of Gera’s Cultural Department and has resolved to transform Gera’s cultural profile.

Space for meeting and making: Locals and refugees create opportunities for work and recreation

On the site of a former barracks on Beulwitzer Straße, situated between housing for refugees and a residential quarter, Saalfeld council and local education institutions are working together with local residents to create new kinds of work and recreational spaces. Around half of the participants are local residents and half refugees and displaced people. 

In summer workshops in 2017 and 2018, the new and existing residents worked jointly to explore ways of creating a place to meet and make their own. They built, celebrated and learned from one another in a series of stimulating and enjoyable encounters.

The IBA Thüringen and other partners in Thuringia are devising projects under the heading ‘Arrival StadtLand’ that address the consequences of displacement and immigration. In Saalfeld, a space made by many for use by many is evolving with the participation of creative people from the region. Neighbours new and old are consciously setting an example that strengthens the local sense of community and symbolises the openness of the urban-rural StadtLand of Thuringia.

Inclusive development: Town, associations, residents and refugees jointly reactivate a vacant building

Migration has become an important driver of development in Thuringia. In 2016, as part of its ›Arrival StadtLand‹ initiative, the IBA Thüringen put out a call for people, places and ideas throughout Thuringia that view immigration as an opportunity and want to actively shape it.  

The ‘WIR Labor’ in Erfurt is a prime example. In cooperation with the city of Erfurt, the association Plattform e.V. intends to use an empty municipal office building in the direct vicinity of container accommodation for refugees in the north of the city. Refugees and migrants, as well as the residents of Erfurt, are invited to help develop the project as a collective laboratory. The goal is the inclusive and integrative development of a new centre of production and workshop building that, in the spirit of Willkommenskultur, will function as a new district centre developed communally for the community. Its design makes an innovative contribution to the successive redevelopment of buildings according to participative principles and circular material cycles. The project explores the possibilities and limits of self-building, while simultaneously trialling simple, resource-conscious and affordable design approaches.

The ‘WIR Labor’ is not only a test bed for inclusive society, but also a realworld laboratory for the experimental conversion of existing buildings.

New housing: 100 percent flexible, affordable and resource-efficient

Just around the corner from Georg Muche’s seminal ‘Haus am Horn’ from 1923 is the urban development area ‘Neues Bauen am Horn’. The Studierendenwerk Thüringen (the Thuringian Student Union) owns the last remaining plot on the site and is developing a new hall of residence for students together with the Stiftung Baukultur and the IBA Thüringen. In 2017, the Munich-based architects Almannai und Fischer won an international architectural competition organised to find original ideas for student housing. Their concept refrains from the typical anonymous repetition of small apartments, proposing instead a mix of spacious communal areas and small private spaces for the students’ personal use.

In October 2019, the Studierendenwerk Thüringen in cooperation with the IBA Thüringen organised a workshop to explore the current design and assess its model character. A scale model of the envisaged floor plan was built in scenographic form at a scale of 1 : 2 in the Eiermannbau in Apolda with a view to playfully analysing its qualities with the help of potential residents. The feedback gained will be incorporated into the continuing design of the project. The next phases will see the development of a set of general rules and evaluation parameters along with a new concept of ‘house rules’ for living together in such collaborative experimental buildings.

The innovative housing concept is to be completed by 2023, with the involvement of future residents, and aims to serve as a model for other student residences.

Real-world laboratory: A community vision for 2.5 hectares of town centre

On a site on the edge of the centre of Gera, adjoining the Congress and Cultural Centre, 2.5 hectares of disused land are awaiting reactivation – indeed have been for 15 years. The city has struggled to find investors for its once vibrant centre for many years.

In 2014, committed citizens and entrepreneurs from Gera took things into their own hands. The association ›Ja – für Gera‹ answered the IBA Thüringen’s call for projects and proposed the idea of a new ›strong centre‹. A Europan urban design competition followed in 2015, organised by the city, the association and a group of citizens, which generated ideas that fed into the following planning stages.

After a flash mob in 2016, in which local citizens took to Gera's ‘New Centre’ with their umbrellas, the memorable ‘Lemon Squeezer’ art project in 2017, and two large exhibitions at the Congress and Cultural Centre (KuK), Gera City Council approved the urban development master plan in 2018. As one of Gera’s largest urban development projects, it has been the subject of ongoing passionate and at times heated debate.

From June to August 2019, the ‘Raumstation Weimar’ collective invited visitors and residents to once again meet and exchange ideas at Gera’s ‘New Centre’: their ‘GERANIA’ project explored utopian ideas for using open space and how they could become reality. More than 40 events took place along with countless meetings and discussions.

The next major milestone followed in December 2019 with the announcement of an open landscape architecture ideas competition ‘Gera: Freiraum Mitte’ for the design and realisation of the green space and squares in front of the KuK and city museum. The jury will convene soon, after which the designs will be exhibited to the public.

New perspectives through transformation: Creative ideas and new uses for sacred buildings

While churches invariably stand at the heart of their locality, their central role in society has shifted over time. In Thuringia, 99% of the nearly 2000 protestant churches are historic listed buildings. Architecturally and culturally, they serve as defining landmarks and bearers of identity but the sheer number of buildings in need of upkeep presents a challenge.

Aside from the expense of their maintenance, many are no longer regularly in use. As the number of churchgoers decreases, church congregations find it increasingly difficult to look after their treasured place of worship. The long-term consequence is a loss of key meeting places in the community.

Together with the Evangelical Church in Central Germany, the IBA Thüringen is seeking model ideas for empty churches that not only benefit the respective congregations but also offer contemporary perspectives for their use within the community. An open call for new, unconventional ideas in 2017 brought forth over 500 ideas that were presented in an exhibition in the Kaufmannskirche in Erfurt, seen by more than 20,000 people. 

From 19 to 22 September 2019, over 350 guests discussed future uses for churches as part of the national German Protestant Church Construction Conference in Erfurt. Eight projects from the ‘Querdenker’ (think lateral!) call for ideas in 2017 demonstrated how churches can not only reopen but be revitalised as public spaces. IBA project leader Ulrike Rothe accompanied excursions to the Chapel of St Anna in Krobitz, where ‘organ’, a sculptural installation in the form of a gas-powered pyrophone, opened in 2017. It serves as an inspirational example of how a sensitive intervention has not only helped a small Romanesque chapel reopen to the public but has also revived it as a venue for interaction, music and prayer.

Creative climate protection: University develops a new joint energy and landscape strategy for town and region

How can we conserve resources at all levels in the urban-rural StadtLand of tomorrow? Nordhausen council, the SWG municipal housing association and Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences, along with numerous other local and regional participants, have come together in an exceptional process to find answers to these questions.

The open, collaborative process began with five public workshops in 2015 and 2016 on the topics of urban redevelopment, the transition to new sources of energy, recycling, mobility and communication, which brought together around 400 interested parties and representatives from education, research, local politics, business and administration. The results form the basis of a new strategy for the future of Nordhausen in which the sustainable use of resources is seen as a social goal involving all aspects of society, rather than merely as a technical challenge. Through the joint action of all partners, the intention is to minimise the consumption of raw materials and energy and to obtain them from renewable sources.

Since then, four thematic projects have developed for Nordhausen in different collaborative constellations: the environmentally-conscious conversion of the mass housing district of Nordhausen Nord, the experimental redensification of the Altendorfer Kirchviertel in the old town, the development of a sustainable mobility concept for the town and region, and the elaboration of climate and design guidelines as a new informal planning instrument.

Waste water as a valuable resource: Shaping new resource landscapes

In times past, the landowners bathed in the water in the village but what flows along the Rossbach today is not so inviting. In addition to rainwater and water from the spring, the stream now also transports sewage from the village.

The situation is typical of many parts of Thuringia. Almost every third household in the state is not connected to a proper sewage treatment facility. The Chair of Urban Water Management at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has therefore developed a new system together with the Nordkreis Weimar Municipal Sewage Treatment Department, that permits the separate collection and regional reuse of grey water and black water. In addition to the installation of a multi-stage plant-based filtration treatment system, solids from the black water will be converted along with agricultural waste material into energy and fertiliser. This innovative process, however, requires changes to the institutional organisation and operation processes of sewage treatment.

The municipality intends to embed the new process in the landscape: the grounds of the former manor estate in Rohrbach, which previously served as an agricultural research institute, is particularly suitable as a contained space for experimentation. In the long term, this material cycle could help the village supply itself with energy and at the same time improve the ecological and tourism potential of the village.

New Sommerfrische: Stakeholders from the town and country shape the landscape

With the opening of the border in 1989, tourism in the once booming summer destination of the Schwarzatal declined abruptly. Many jobs were lost, infrastructure deteriorated, residents moved away and buildings were left empty. The area is now one of the regions in Thuringia with the worst demographic forecasts (-30 percent from 2014 to 2035).

Local initiatives and projects committed to the development of the region and tourism have been building a strong network of civic partners to jointly shape the cultural landscape. As part of the Federal model project ‘Sustainable Landscape for the Schwarzatal’, the Zukunftswerkstatt Schwarzatal association together with the Saalfeld-Rudolstadt LEADER action group and the IBA Thüringen are working together to develop the outstanding qualities of the landscape as a uniting element that fosters local identity and shapes the image of the region to attract new guests from further a eld to the Schwarzatal.

In 2018 four landscape architecture offices were invited to the Schwarzatal to develop sustainable visions for the future of the cultural landscape. The chosen concept by ‘MAN MADE LAND’ and ‘fabulism’ envisages the 140-kilometre-long Schwarzatal Panoramic Trail as a connecting element. The team proposed a range of smaller and larger interventions — entitled ‘Waldfrische’, ‘Wasserfrische’, ‘Wiesenfrische’ and ‘Dorffrische’ — to highlight the qualities of the woodland, water, meadows and villages so typical of the landscape, and to strengthen the local economy.

New uses for a historical estate: A country seat for the local university

Perched high up on the ledge of a steep limestone ridge overlooking the Saale valley is a row of three castles, with the Old Castle at one end. It is a perfect spot to while away a few hours in the sun or enjoy the well-kept gardens and panoramic view across the valley. The Old Castle, now restored, has been used by the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena since 2005 as a conference centre and meeting location but it provides no overnight accommodation.

Behind the Old Castle is the Dornburg Estate, an ensemble of buildings including the former granary, tenant’s house, old pharmacy, manor and a row of barns. Unlike the castles, the buildings are in a state of disrepair. Formerly used to supply the university in Jena, the estate was used for agricultural purposes during GDR times, but has remained vacant since German reunification. The municipality of Dornburg-Camburg, the Friedrich Schiller University and the Thuringian Castles and Gardens Foundation are working together with the IBA Thuringia to revitalise the empty estate buildings. The reactivation of historical sites for use by public institutions establishes synergies and reciprocal connections between the town and country. Various scenarios are in discussion ranging from the expansion of the university’s facilities to include overnight accommodation, to the refurbishment of the individual historical buildings as a place for working and living.

As flexible working patterns become more widespread and people become more mobile, the connection between Jena and Dornburg can benefit from the potential of the urban-rural StadtLand of Thuringia. Few places offer the opportunity to switch so easily between the high-tech facilities of the present day and historical legacy of the past.

New places of learning: Pupils, parents and teachers reprogram their school

Investment in schools in Germany has trailed behind new developments for several decades, leaving many municipalities facing major challenges. In addition, the existing school building regulations no longer meet current teaching standards, educational formats and inclusion requirements.

This was the starting point for the IBA StadtLand School project on the outskirts of Weimar. In an extensive participation process, the town, teachers, parents and pupils of the Jenaplan School came together to discuss their needs and expectations and the corresponding building requirements. A team of experts is now translating these into a concrete building project. The knowledge gained concerning aspects such as use concepts and spatial configurations will also be documented and made accessible to others in the form of a SCHULBAU OPEN SOURCE planning toolkit for future school building projects. The intention is to help other municipalities and planners benefit from useful experience and to save costs.

The project is being carried out in close cooperation and with support from the Montag Stiftung Jugend und Gesellschaft, which has many years’ experience in the field of modern teaching concepts and school construction.

The socially oriented Montag Stiftung foundation has spent nearly a decade promoting innovative advances in school design and modern teaching concepts. The aim is to develop forward-looking school buildings that provide a good-quality environment and facilitate contemporary education concepts for everyone. The SCHULBAU OPEN SOURCE planning toolkit collects together valuable knowledge on the design, planning and development of schools and makes it available to others. The objective is to develop a tool for architects that can assist in the design of school buildings and at the same time to provide a framework of quality parameters with which school authorities can plan actively and con dently for the future.
