Fieldstation FIELDEXPLORER Residency Programme

KLAUS PLATZGUMMER is a tutor for History and Theory Studies at the AA School of Architecture and a research associate in the Department of Architecture Theory at TU Berlin. Platzgummer received an MA in History and Critical Thinking in Architecture with Distinction from the AA and holds an MSc in Architecture from ETH Zürich. Platzgummer studies media and techniques for the storage, transmission and organisation of data, information and knowledge in design and construction processes. He focuses on researching their transformations and geneses through the advent of electronic media, describing the sociotechnical assemblages and the global geographies that form and analysing their role in the orchestration of epistemic violences. Moreover, Platzgummer studies the methodological challenges and capacities that electronic media holds for historiography. He is part of the Augmented Historical Pedagogies research group, an international collaboration between MIT, Technion and TU Berlin.

GABRIELA VOLANTI is an artist based in Berlin. Numerous key galleries and museums such as Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle have featured Gabriela Volanti’s work.


BIRGITTA WEIMER is an artist engaged in the Anthropocene. In her installations since the 1990s, there have been recurring phenomena that could be described as stylistic devices of the Anthropocene: The magnification of biological microstructures undermines the anthropocentric worldview and relegates humans to a subordinate role. The multiplication of simple forms gives rise to emergent structures analogous to nature. Working with non-humans teaches her humility. Using mirrors, she includes the viewer in what is observed, thus eliminating the separation between subject and object. In short, she is working on a new visual language of the Anthropocene. Birgitta Weimer ‘s sculptures and installations can be seen in some German art museums such as Lehmbruck Museum Duisburg, Osthaus Museum Hagen and Kunsthalle Mannheim.

TILL ZIHLMANN teaches and researches as a research assistant at the Institute for Building Climatology and Energy of Architecture at the TU Braunschweig. After completing his Bachelor’s degree at the UDK Berlin, he worked as an architect for three years. During his Master’s degree at the TU Berlin, he met the Designosaur. The story “How I Met the Designosaur” led him to conceive the Post-Designosaur Studies in Architecture. What drives him is the question of contemporary design and new narratives in a present that is unknown to us – an alien environment. Post-Designosaur Studies in Architecture develops practices at the intersection of natural science, humanities and design. The practices serve as a tool to overcome habitual thought patterns and should help to develop a new view towards our environment – the context in which we design. In this sense: Design Imprints. Not Buildings!
