18:30 Key note address: Proximity still matters - the campus and city of the future as a matter of solid, liquid and gas (English)

Raum 2350 (Alte Bibliothek), Thierschbau, TU München

Prof.dr.ir. Alexandra den Heijer, TU Delft, Professor of Public Real Estate, Department of Management in the Built Environment

Cities - like campuses - are a combination of "solid, liquid and gas", referring to different mobility states of users. Lately, space use has been shifting in place and time: from traditional (fixed) group use to individual freedom to choose where and when to work (or not). Applying the physics metaphor of three states of matter, "solid" represents exclusive organisational territory, "liquid" shared space between organisations and "gas" being accessible for all. The shift from solid to liquid and gas has started decades ago, but has accelerated during the corona pandemic, when (space use of) organisations practically "evaporated". At that point, many realised: proximity matters. Universities and other (public) organisations are reassessing their (real estate) strategies to align with community needs, while – at the same time – accounting for the financial and energy resources spent. Dilemmas, strategies and key learnings are shared.

Don't it always seem to go. That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?  Joni Mitchell (song: "Big Yellow Taxi", 1970)

While teaching at TU Delft's Faculty of Architecture, professor Alexandra den Heijer also merges insights from organisational, social and environmental perspectives into her research. Her scientific work is driven by her ambition to support decision makers in practice: owners and users of (public) buildings, who are aiming at inspiring and functional as well as affordable and sustainable spaces. With university campuses as her specialisation, she compares the city with a campus (as a mini-city) and illustrates the ambivalent needs for silence and buzz, analogue and digital, offline and online, community and independence. Proximity still matters to many, but has autonomy (in choosing time and place) as a natural enemy.

19:30 - 22:00 Different Distance Dinner und mehr....

Venture Lab Built Environment Raum 2345, Thierschbau, TU München

Gustatorische Szenografie: Jörg Sellerbeck, Raumkulinarik mit Christine Krauss, Chirpfood.

Das Happening "Difference Distance Dinner" lädt zu einem interaktiven Spiel von Nähe und Distanz bei Begegnungen ein. Mit dem Ziel einer ausgelassenen Konvivialität stehen die Dimensionen von "space & taste" im Mittelpunkt. . Das Happening übersetzt die inhaltlichen und räumlichen Entwicklungen in geschmackvolle Speisechoreografien. (Untersucht werden die Wechselwirkungen räumlicher und geschmacklicher Wirkzusammenhänge). Gemeinsam stellen wir uns der Frage: „will Proximity still Matter?"
