Vernacular architecture, traditional forms of construction, ecological materials, anonymous and collective building, history of architecture, timber-framed house structures have been the themes, which inspired the first edition of the DATs in 2014. Are traditional methods of construction innovative? Can tradition be a source for innovative thinking? In a traditional timber framed house from the 17th century located in the Old Town of Nuremberg (Germany) artists, poets, designers, architects, biologists, engineers, historians, photographers, filmmakers and friends have come together from July to November 2014 to share perspectives, experiences and ideas suspended between the materiality of a house and the emotions of a home: Monica Rizzolli, Zhijie Yin, Maya Horton, Celina Bordino, Lucie Kordacova, Geri Loup Nolan, Aya Imamura and Rudolf Rie. A Fachwerkhaus is a traditional house, built out of wattle and daub in wooden frames. In general Fachwerk refers to the energetic junction of different elements, which, connected and assembled together, react to each other, generating impact (mitwirken). Believing in the importance of collaborative approaches and mutual learning and encouraging diversity and openness towards the other, DATs welcomes people from different backgrounds, age, gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, field of research and work to share experience and collaborate together. Let's fachwerken - mitwirken!
