Die Baupiloten were invited with five other architects to be part of the Building Blocks exhibition at the Nordic Embassy. The project enables children of all ages to be the clients of small temporary buildings and participate in the design and construction process. We worked together with three teenage girls from the Albert-Schweitzer-Schule to develop the “Blickfänger”, an elevated 4m x 4m stepped platform which offers views from a variety of different seating positions; the “living room” for hanging out in a large group, cosy niches for private chit-chat and a sun terrace for lying and looking at the sky. Using collages and models,Edona, Fehime und Sennur were directly involved in the design dialogue and explored their notion of a dream house. The design proposals from each group of children and their architect were constructed as 1:1 buildings at the Nordic Embassy. Following the exhibition, our pupils re-erected the “Blickfänger” seating landscape in a new constellation to enliven the square in front of their school.
