‘die entwicklung neuer stadtquartiere im herzen der city’ or ‘the development of new urban quarters in the heart of the city’ by frank bayh & steff rosenberger-ochs
the building of the ‘stuttgart 21′ has commenced, a train station which is predicted to have the largest construction site in europe.
a resistance to the project has since been growing, with demonstrators setting up camp on location to prevent progress.
the new urban districts were captured by german photography studio frank bayh & steff rosenberger-ochs in a series entitled
‘the development of new urban quarters in the heart of the city’.
the images showcase make-shift homes occupied by the protesters. the ad-hoc complex has resulted in a colorful
and organic mixture of materials including tarps, umbrellas, sticks and blankets, all compiled into the metropolitan dwellings.
the personalized teepees showcase a different type of architectural expression springing from necessity into accidental
and eclectic structures.
