„Warum habe ich nicht meinen alten Morgenmantel behalten? Er passte zu mir, ich passte zu ihm. Er schmiegte sich jeder Wendung meines Körpers an; er hat mich nie gestört…“
("Why didn't I keep my old robe? It suited me, I suited him. "He clung to every turn of my body; he never bothered me..." )
With a new, scarlet dressing gown, domestic life gets out of balance instead. The loungewear may be chic, but the home furnishings suddenly look shabby and have to be renewed piece by piece. 250 years ago, the philosopher Denis Diderot lamented the pleasure and suffering of consumption. His story is very vivid and only half invented. Unfortunately, it does not tell us a solution to the still current problem of how the new - whether beautiful or useful - can be compatible with our desire to protect the material resources of our world.
In this seminar, we will look at sustainability as a social concern and look at examples of how design and architecture can incorporate this challenge into design and implementation. It is about the different points of attack of sustainable design, binding standards and new approaches in a confusing market area. Students from all disciplines in the Department of Design are invited to attend this course to learn about the basics of consumption and sustainability, to clarify common questions and to contribute through group work and keynote speeches from their disciplines.
