Participatory Construction Workshops

Bauer­eig­nis clas­sic pro­jec­ts are on-site par­ti­ci­pato­ry pro­jec­ts dealing with the design of inte­rior and exte­rior school spaces.
They invol­ve three pha­ses: goal-defi­ning, plan­ning, and buil­ding. Tog­e­ther with the users, ide­as for the design are deve­lo­ped, orde­red and illus­tra­ted in crea­ti­ve models. It´s from this pool of infor­ma­ti­on and ide­as that Bauer­eig­nis draws up a new archi­tec­tu­ral design matching the schoolchildren´s expec­ta­ti­ons. The final result is then dis­cus­sed and eva­lua­ted by the pupils and pedago­gues befo­re being car­ri­ed out during a joint buil­ding week. Fami­lies are fre­quent­ly invi­ted to come and help in the con­struc­tion.

This approach gene­ra­tes accep­tan­ce and iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on with the result and increa­ses the project´s func­tio­n­al qua­li­ties. The com­ple­te design pro­cess enab­les the deve­lop­ment of crea­ti­ve poten­ti­al as well as the expe­ri­ence of par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on and self-effi­cacy.
