Intersections in built environment: promoting interdisciplinary higher education in the Baltic Sea Region
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The THEMATIC APPROACH of the project BeInterBaltic focuses the COMPEXITY of current urban conditions, actual chances and challenges where individual disciplines do not have the necessary capacity to develop the comprehensive understanding alone therefore interdisciplinary approaches are needed in order to frame and address the complexity of the praxis of contemporary built environment in general and the intersection between architecture and engineering in particular. Consequently the overall goal of the project BeInterBaltic is to enhance the quality and relevance of higher education in Baltic Sea Region by improving and adapting the current curricula of built environment disciplines of participating universities. The project also aims (1)to develop and test NEW TEACHING METHODS and formats, (2)to equip the students with the INTERDISCIPLINARY and INTERCULTURAL COMPETENCES and skills, (3)to strengthen an interactive DIALOGUE between the universities and non‐academic sector and (4)to promote and increase the COOPERATION between the universities in Baltic Sea Region. The project consortium consists of 7 higher education institutions from six countries: (1)HafenCity University Hamburg, DE (coordinator), (2)Gdańsk University of Technology, PL, (3)Tallinn University of Technology, EE, (4)The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation, DK, (5)Technical University of Denmark, DK, (6)Chalmers University of Technology, SE and (7)Aalto University, FI. The project BeInterBaltic is structured in four interlinked and parallel progressing work packages (WPs). Within the WP1 successful project implementation and dissemination of the project outcomes are ensured. The AIM of the WP2 is to bring the teachers of disciplines of built environment together in order to evaluate existing and develop new methods as well as formats of interdisciplinary teaching. Within this WP a WORKSHOP for teachers was conducted and METHODOLOGICAL GUIDELINES for teachers are going to be developed. WP3 includes a paradigm shift from the methods of teaching towards the students and their motivation of understanding. To intensify these motivation different aspects of designing in the context of the build environment and at the intersection of the disciplines will be applied: (1)analyzing through patterns, (2)gaining insides through “hands‐on” and (3)performing through social interaction. These aspects depend on another and develop the examination of the relationship between the designer and the design. Each of these steps will be addressed in one of the three SUMMER SCHOOLS which are the core activity in this WP. Within this WP the teaching material for a NEW TEACHING MODULE will be jointly developed. The AIM of WP 4 is to point out the relevance of this interdisciplinary project for society. To meet the requirements of society students need to have (1)a critical and curious mind‐set, (2)a naughty and ambitious attitude and (3)an inclusive and competent responsibility. The OUTPUT of the WP4 is to create a DIGITAL PLATFORM for the interdisciplinary and intercultural exchange between the students, teaching staff, industry as well as other stakeholders from non‐university society. A MULTIPLIER EVENT in Tallinn is going to be organized in order to disseminate the project outputs and to promote stronger dialogue between the academic and non‐academic society.
