According to the topic „woodencity“, the task was to find an urban and timber compatible solution for various building sites in Munich, Berlin or Vienna. The competition entries had to be created in interdisciplinary teams of students of architecture and civil engineering.
The project "fünfseithof" prevailed among the 300 submissions from 29 universities from Austria, Germany, Italy, Slovenia and Russia. The winning project is compelling in its urbanistic configuration. With two arcades offset from each other and connecting to the existing structures, a residential and studio building 25 metres high forms pleasantly proportioned outdoor spaces: an inner courtyard towards the existing U-shaped art courtyard, and a new neighbourhood square towards the adjacent youth centre. The single-storey structures are partly transparent filters, and partly suited as exhibition spaces. This makes for very effective zoning of public and semi-public spaces. Moreover, the design demonstrates that a high-rise built with wood can be a benefit to the site.
In addition, the interdisciplinary team of Simon Schubert, Tim Schellhammer, Kilian Jungel receives recognition for their project "DOHO - Munich's Artists' Courtyard". In terms of construction, this competition entry is particularly well-articulated down to the details.
