6.2. 12:00
Workshop: Conversion
Synnika and Soeng Joeng Toi

- Chinese follows English -

12:00 (in Frankfurt) / 19:00 (in Guangzhou)

In this Workshop we will discuss the prospects of Conversion in a context of pandemic crises. In urban planning Conversion means the transformation of buildings and areas, in information technology: the change of a data format, in the armaments industry: the shift towards civilian production. The future of »Remote Working«, beyond the current pandemic crisis, renders significant amounts of work and office space superfluous. Companies plan to balance stagnating and shrinking margins of profit by saving costs for wages and work space. At the same time, residential rents continue to rise. In this workshop, both Soeng Joeng Toi in Guangzhou and Synnika in Frankfurt am Main will be discussed as examples for conversions from commercial space to community based practice. How can experiments beyond the traditional space typologies of "shops", "offices", "three-room apartments", "studios" or "exhibitions" take place?

The language of discussion in this online workshop is English. Please register for participation via hello@synnika.space


在本次工作坊中,我们将讨论疫情背景下“转换”的可能性。转换是指建筑物及区域的改变,在信息技术领域,转换指的是数据格式的改变,在军工行业,它指的是向民用生产的转变。在当前的流行病危机之后,远程工作的未来将使大量的工作和办公空间变得多余。企业计划通过节省工资成本和办公空间来平衡停滞与萎缩的利润。与此同时,住宅租金则持续上涨。本次工作坊将以广州的上阳台和法兰克福的Synnika为例,探讨商业空间如何向社区实践转变。如何超越“商店”、“办公室”、“三室公寓”、“工作室”或“展览”等传统的空间类型去进行实验?
