Model conversion designs for barn owners

The goal of our project, which started in early 2023, is to create model designs for barn conversions that are realized in collaboration between architects and visual artists. We believe that these two professions can have a productive effect on each other and the resulting designs can represent a higher quality. As a result of the project, we will publish the plans in a publication available to everyone at the end of 2024.

During the project, architects and artists from Transylvania, Hungary and Germany will work together, a total of 12 plans will be prepared based on the barn types of each country. The task of the visual artists is twofold, on the one hand, they reinterpret the interior of a selected barn using the language of contemporary art, so that the end result is a one-man exhibition (installation, sculpture, video work, etc.). On the other hand, they contribute to the preparation of the architectural plan with their unique vision and creative ideas, the preparation of which will primarily be the task of the architectural engineers. The project is implemented with the co-financing of the Creative Europe program of the European Union.

As the first step of the project, we are issuing a tender for architects and visual artists. The successful applicants will work together for two years - and will have the opportunity to meet their Hungarian and German colleagues participating in the project.
