“Make use of the provisorical solution – and ensure that everybody will beweep the makeshift situation in 4 years time.” ContainerUni is a complete temporary campus for Zeppelin Universität at Lake Constance in Friedrichshafen. Over 160 standard Containers and a Hangar were transformed into a complex work that connects art, architecture, urban planning & academic teaching in an experimental spirit of spatial appropriation. In autumn 2011 artists Margit Czenki and Christoph Schäfer together with architects quartiervier, kicked off the planning process with the students and employees of the University.
Now 11 seminar rooms and over 60 offices are in use; a silver Open Test Haus for the students has been created; the Hangar with a 70 seat café is on it’s way; a landscape of terraces is longing for spring to come; a GDR-Caravan, the Nagetusch, acts as presidential meeting room in the 2nd floor; a 1:1 replica of George Bernhard Shaws Writing Shed adorns the Gartenhaus; and the golden Moon Container awaits it’s finishing touches.

The “Mooncontainer” from inside. Secret buttons in the wall might release sounds from the future.
An interior view of one of the meeting rooms in “Mondhaus” (Moon-House), showing interiors – visions of space-travel-inspired designs from the late nineteenth century, from the fiftees, and from the sixties. The “inserts” gave the “Theme” and name to the blocks of offices and seminar rooms.
Students applied a floating garden out of a fleet o recycled PET-bottles to the scaffolding at Mondhaus. Cool!
The space between the blocks works as a meeting space - a new thing in the Fallenbrunnen area.
Need a break and inspiration? Enjoy the view, peace and quite in this 1:1 replica of George Bernhard Shaw’s rotating writing shed.
Students and artists collaborated in planning the ContainerUni – and sometimes even worked together on the stenciled graffitis that adorn the walls.
Relief! Quartiervier constructed giant balconies – and all those, who feared, a building from containers would be awful, today study in a setting that looks more like a glamorous cruise ship. With space to jump, think – and a lot of view, indeed
