With the aid of artistic interventions in public space, since 2008 the Darmstadt Summer of Architecture has been initiating a wide range of discourses on urban development in Darmstadt, the Rhein-Main region, and beyond. This year’s Summer of Architecture visits a prominent location, Darmstadt’s Mathildenhöhe, exactly one hundred years after the last Artist Colony exhibition. From 7 July to 15 August, the OSTHANG PROJECT activates the fallow site on the eastern slope of the Mathildenhöhe as a cultural project space:

For five weeks, the aim is to set up a temporary festival campus with discussion fora, concerts, workshops, lectures, film screenings, think tanks or actions by resident artists. As part of a Summer School, international teams of architects, students of local and external universities created a park and temporary buildings to serve as a venue, meeting-place, café, think tank, and accommodation for guests and visitors.

Bollinger+Grohmann supported the individual project teams in issues of the structural design.

The project was created as a co-production of the ‘Architektursommer Rhein-Main’ (ASRM) and the ‘Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt’ (IMD) as a transdisciplinary production. Bollinger+Grohmann supported the individual project teams in the structural design.
