Jesko Fezer & Studio Experimentelles Design (Eds.)
Public Design Support—a joint venture between Goethe Institute’s Urban Incubator and Hamburg University of Fine Arts (HfbK)—was established to offer free practical support to urban residents to help them reshape their environment through new and progressive ideas in design and construction. This substantial illustrated reader assembles the history of the collaboration initiated by Jezco Fazer in HfbK’s Experi- mental Design Studio department, and documents students work with residents of Savamala, Belgrade, in Serbia where the students renovated a space for local residents to meet with the students to discuss and find solutions to design and construction problems. Included are key project materials, scholarly essays and significant historical texts chronicling the aspirations, methods and projects of the first four years of Public Design Support. With contributions by Julia Albani, Baltic Raw, Martina Fineder and Friedrich von Borries (HfbK, Hamburg), among many others.
