Bergsee Camp – Analysis and Design Proposal (a Design Studio Case Study)
Turn your inspiration into action. Learn how to develop analytical skills that can apply to consulting and practising sustainable design.
The Bergsee Camp project is an exciting output of the Design Studio, which participants of the Design for Sustainability (GEDS) programme are able to engage with once they have completed the four dimensions- social, ecological, economic design & worldview.
The focus of the Design Studio is to get you to think about and practise integrative whole systems design, go through the experience of co-designing with others to create a detailed project proposal and design, and to recapitulate and integrate what you have learned over the year-long programme.
Bergsee Camp is currently a traditional holiday campground of 8800 m2 in N. Central Germany, not far from the city of Göttingen and the fabled Harz Mountains, a picturesque area of medieval villages with half-timbered houses. The campground, created next to a lake in the 1960s, has been in the Giesecke family since its inception.
