Wouldn’t be the way the familiar “essences” of living land on the plot a wonderful opportunity to finally discover the place, its vicinity and the world around it?
The competition was announced as part of the Bavarian government’s experimental model project “Efficient construction - affordable housing—more affordable housing for Bavaria”. On the plot between the city entrance and the Danube, a development is to be erected which will provide space for around 130 subsidised apartments and the corresponding subsequent facilities. In addition to the demand for efficient and cost-effective construction, the challenge lies in dealing with the concrete situation: the location exposed to noise suggests a retreat and a turning away from the surroundings, while the proximity to the Danube basin and the view of the city panorama demand height and view.
Five experiments generate the great Ingolstadt resources coup. The five experiments develop innovations in typology, territory, configuration, topology and infrastructure. In their interaction, the experiments release substantial added value/resources. This coup of resources lets us rediscover the place!
