Suggestions (partly wild) constructions, vertical greens and various paintings. All ideas are categorized (painting, construction, greening, other) and tested for their feasibility. It turns out that a vast majority of the ideas submitted (about 56%) are in favour of painting. Since such a one also best meets the agreed framework, the Coordination Group decides to draw up a public call for the painting of the Audimax 1. Here you will find the presentation, which was shown during an information event after the ideacollection.

January 2017 – The project

After initial discussions with the Presidium, a framework book and a project plan are agreed. The goal: The redesign should be as inclusive and democratic as possible. In order to realize this, there should be three phases, empowering as many people as possible at TUHH to participate:

  1. Collection of ideas – What is it supposed to be like? The aim is to inform about the project and make the process transparent. All contributions are welcome, be they ideas, concerns or concrete design proposals.
  2. Call for tenders – Who can do it? A coordination group will be formed, with representatives of all the university’s status groups. This group then formulates a public tender that takes into account all contributions made to the collection of ideas.
  3. Vote – What is being done? After the completion of the call for tenders, the Coordination Group makes a pre-selection with all the feasible proposals. This pre-selection will then vote among all people at TUHH.

The frame booklet as well as an information sheet for the collection of ideas can be found here.

December 2016 – The initiation

AudimaxKREATIV is the starting form. You have set yourself the goal of redesigning the exterior walls of Audimax 1. “Because the Audimax 1 is present not only as a lecture hall in the everyday life of the students, but also as a central building in the heart of the TU campus. However, the grey and monotonous exterior walls of the Audimax do not do justice to a modern and creative atmosphere, which from the point of view of the initiator should be part of a forward-looking teaching and research.
