HOUSING FOR SPECIFIC WAYS OF LIVING HOMEWORKERS THE POTENTIAL OF MIXING HYBRID STRUCTURES A PILOT-PROJECT THEME: IN THE CURRENT TRANSITION FROM THE INDUSTRIAL SOCIETY TOWARDS THE POSTINDUSTRIAL SOCIETY A SHIFT IN PROPORTIONS OF THE WORKING WORLD CAN BE OBSERVED. CONSEQUENTLY, A PHENOMENON OF POSSIBLY SOCIAL OR ECONOMIC NATURE HAS SHOWN UP, ULTIMATELY LEADING TOWARDS THE REPROGRAMMING OF WORKING SOCIETY AND REQUIRING A NEW TRANSFORMATION IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF HABITATS. A FRACTAL STRUCTURE OF THE CITY, NEW VIRTUAL FORMS OF OPERATION, AND THE NECESSITY OF HAVING A ‘LEAN TECHNOLOGY’ ARE A SOCIAL REALITY THAT SETS A CONDITION FOR AN INNOVATIVE CULTURE OF ENTRESPRENEURSHIP: THE LIVING-WORKING CONNECTION EXISTS IN COMPLEX FORMS THIS PILOT-PROJECT WILL DEVELOP POSSIBILITIES FOR HOMEWORKERS ON A LEVEL OF FRAGMENT URBANISTIC CONSEQUENCES THE DIFFERENT RHYTHM OF THE HOMEWORKERS‘ SOCIAL LIFE COULD BECOME AN IMPORTANT STEP TOWARD THE VITALIZATION OF MONOFUNCTIONAL HOUSING DISTRICTS. THE URBANISTIC POTENTIAL OF THESE SPECIAL WAYS OF LIVING OPENS UP NEW POSSIBILITIES FOR JUXTAPOSITIONS: WE UNDERSTAND THIS DEVELOPMENT AS AN INTEGRAL STIMULATION OF INTELLIGENT PROCESSES: INTEGRATED SOCIETY, INTERFACES BETWEEN LOCAL AND GLOBAL NETWORKS, DENSITY AS ECOLOGICAL URBAN DEVELOPMENT. THE PROJECT SERVES AS AN IMPLULSE TO INVESTIGATE THE POTENTIAL OF MIXING HYBRID STRUCTURES. ARCHITECTURAL CONSEQUENCES THE ‘HOMEWORKER‘ EXPERIENCES REALITY IN A DIFFERENT WAY THAN ALIEN ‘CITY WORKER‘ DOES. CONSEQUENTLY, THE APARTMENT LOSES ITS MONOFUNCTIONAL CHARACTER. THIS PRODUCES AN EVENT OF MUTATION, OR OF DEVELOPMENT OF HYBRID STRUCTURES, WHICH INTRODUCES A NEW DEFINITION OF THE WORKING AND THE LIVING SPACE. THE APARTMENT IS SEEN AS AN INTERFACE. WHAT KIND OF SPATIAL CHANGES IN HOUSING ARE THE CONSEQUNCE OF THESE NEW FUNCTIONS? HOW CAN THE CONCEPTS OF FLEXIBILITY AND SPACE-RECYCLING BE INTERPRETED IN THE COURSE OF TIME OR LIFE, AND WHAT ARE THE POSSIBILITIES OF GIVING THEM STRUCTURAL EXPRESSION? THE SYNERGY OF THE PROJECT DEVELOPS THROUGH THE COMPLEXITY OF VIRTUAL FORMS OF OPERATION: • JOBS INSIDE/OUTSIDE THE APARTMENT • ELEMENTS OF INTERGRATED WAYS OF LIVING: FREE-LANCERS, CRAFTSMEN, TELE-HOMEWORKERS, ARTISTS, ETC. • APARTMENTS COMBINED WITH STUDIO, WORKSHOP, OFFICE, STUDIO, SHOP, ETC. • MODERN WORKSHOPS AND RATIONAL LOGISTICS OF WORK PROCESS DIFFERENT RHYTHMS OF UTILIZATION LEAD TOWARD DIFFERENT DEGREES OF OPENING: • FURTHERANCE OF MOBILITY WITHIN THE HOUSING COMPLEX: URBAN PLANE AS A MEETING PLACE • REVALUATION OF PEDESTRIANS: ALL ACCESSES TOWARD CARMINWEG STREET (HOUSING) • CONCENTRATION OF TRAFFIC: ENTRANCE AND EXIT AT DONAUFELDER STREET, INTERNAL STREETS • SPEED OF APPEARANCE: FACADE OVERLOOKING DONAUFELDER STREET AS METROPOLITAN ADVERTISING MEDIUM. RELATIONS TOWARDS THE ENVIRONMENT UNDERLINE ‘THE OTHER’ OF THE FACILITY’S SUBCULTURES: • DONAUFELDER STREET: GROUND FLOOR UTILITY FEATURES UNDER URBAN PLANE WITH DENSE INFRASTRUCTURE • CARMINWEG STREET: MULTIPLICATION OF PUBLIC SPACE ON DIFFERENT LEVELS • NEIGHBOURS: PLANE’S HIGHLIGHTED FEATURE AS FIFTH FACADE • FRONT GARDEN: DIFFERENT LEVELS, DIFFERENT FUNCTIONS FREE SURFACES AS PLACE OF CREATIVITY, AS URBAN PRINCIPLE OF LIFE: • WORKSHOPS/GUIDELINE: QUALITY OF LIFE IN WORKING ENVIRONMENT • TRIANGLE SQUARE: PLACE OF EVENTS FOR THE YOUTH • URBAN PLANE: GREEN PLAYGROUND HILL FOR CHILDREN • COMPOSIT ION: STROLLING AND ROAMING
