Competition to redesign German military's accommodation
Attention! In all senses of the word. The German military has launched a competition to redesign its service accommodation. Its large, EU-wide tender – called ‘BUNDESWEHR IN FÜHRUNG – Aktiv. Attraktiv. Anders’ and running until 30 June 2015 – is being accompanied by the German Design Council and invites submissions to deliver a thorough modernisation of serving personnel’s living quarters by raising their standard and level of comfort, thereby increasing wellbeing. The plan is to implement the new furnishings across the board from 2018.
The jury consists of, among others, Susanne Brandherm of Brandherm Krumrey Architekten, Anke Bernotat, Professor of Industrial Design at the Universität der Künste in Folkwang, and Professor Carsten Wiewiorra of wiewiorra hopp schwark Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH.
