We live in a networked society and for products we speak about the internet of things.
With all that the digitization in and around our houses grows. This is all very exciting, but it also means that more and more products with plugs and power are needed where we really have to slow down on our use of energy in the future!

How can we manage that with both old and new materials, methods and technologies and empower our homes and ways of living for the future?
This short time project is integrated in the Power House project as an experimental warming up/brainstorm week.

In Power House -> Short we touch briefly on the various themes of the overall project:
new technology: such as the internet of things, use of programming / arduino
learning from the past: handpower, no power, common sense
biological power: sun, wind, shit, biogas
power of materials: isolating, heating up, conducting
powerfull themes: waste, food, water, energy, wellbeing
strategies of thing: systems, implementing, by who-for who?

The short time project will  include a visit to Deutsches Technikmuseum, but the Power House projects are open for high- and low-tech thoughts.
At the end of the short term project you will present some first results.

Ineke will not be in Berlin for the Projektbörse on Monday 16.4 and some students might be in Milan that day.
Because it is important to register everyone before 16.4 there will be an info meeting on Friday 6 April at 18.00. You can also apply for the course by email before 16.4.
