Specific Uncertainty – Education + Architecture

Part 1 Project 2017

The Bauhaus University campus has constantly developed from the founding of the school in 1860 to the present day, resulting in its campus being physically and spiritually spread all over the city.

The project proposes a new master plan of the Bauhaus campus around the main building, designed by Henry van de Velde in 1911. The design process, inspired by Louis Kahn, began with the unmeasurable and went through the measurable. It not only forms a visible ensemble as a continuation of what has been existed, but also generates invisible connection between what has always been overlapped and recorded over and what will be turned into the place.

The concept of Specific Uncertainty does not literally mean “Do-Not-Know or ambiguousness”, but it just means that “Leave dynamis for potential possibilities beyond something taking for granted”. Thus, the project in the end becomes unmeasurable again and exists as the background of the journey. The main character couldn’t be architecture, but you and your life.
