Iacobus+2018/ Pictures at an exhibition

Thursday July 4, 2019 the exhibition of Iacobus+2018 Stadtlagerhaus Regensburg was inaugurated by Mrs. Gertrud Maltz-Schwarzfischer (Mayor of the City of Regensburg), Mr. Manfred Koller (Executive Director of das Stadtwerk Regensburg GmbH), Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Baier, President of the OTH Regensburg and Carola Kupfer (Executive Director of Forum Kreativwirtschaft Regensburg). the Coordinator of Iacobus+ at the OTH Regensburg and Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Prof. Andreas Emminger presented the exhibition to the public with the presence of more than 150 guests. The space of the Stadtlagerhaus enchanted everybody present, the catering of Werner Zapf and his team (Deggingerhaus, Regensburg) showed how creative food and beverages can contribute to the ambiance of such an exceptional event in such an outstanding location.

The commitment of everybody to transform this House of Freight Logistics into a House of Idea Logistic, as Mr. Koller explained the general aims so poetically, were very clear. Nobody left any doubts about the great performance of the architecture students, their creative ideas of how to transform and adapt the Stadtlagerhaus, visions for a future which will be inhabitated by themselves and which has to be formed nowadays, an absolute duty of todays’ society, as Mrs. Maltz-Schwarzfischer explained in her vivid, colourful statement. Prof. Dr. Baier emphasized the importance of international connections between students of different cultures, a long-standing tradition of the OTH, to help open-minded people of all ages to solve problems and create visions for today and tomorrow on a multinational basis. Mrs. Kupfer underlined the importance of the commitment of all public institutions in order to continue the project of housing the culture and creative industries in many different types of locations, a project which has been started visibly with the opening of the Degginger in 2016.

Plans were made at every corner about how to go on, plans mightily inspired by the impression, the location of this exhibition, the Stadtlagerhaus has imprinted into every visitor.

Iacobus+2019/ Workshop Colegiata Sta. María la Real do Sar

March 11, 2019: finally, the workshop for our Iacobus+2019 project «Colegiata Sta. María la Real do Sar» has started. More than 50 students from four academic institutions (OTH, UDC, ENSACF & NUACA) will work together in international groups during one week at the UDC in order to plunge into the topic of this year’s master project in architecture. They will be coached by six professors from all four institutions. The project topic is the transformation of the existing Colegiata Sta. María la Real do Sar, an ancient monastery and important historic monument at the edge of Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

The IACOBUS + 2019 Workshop of this first day was quite intense:

After a Welcome with introduction into the general topic of this year’s topic, Prof. Dr. Jesús Conde held an interesting lecture with the title «Urbanization project for the Colegiata del Sar environment», focussing not only about his proper urban project, but also informing the students first hand about the circumstances and the historic development of the site and the monastery.

After a break, students from France and Spain presented their analytical work about the site. See a very short summary of the workshop here:
