ÖBA – öffentliche Bauaufsicht (public contruction supervision)

On Tuesday 18 May, the Club Hybrid team invited visitors to the “Public Building Inspection” in Herrgottwiesgasse. It took place both online and due to Corona regulations with only a small group on site.

Among others, City Councillor for Culture Günter Riegler, Holding Graz CEO Wolfgang Malik and Christian Mayer, programme manager of Graz Kulturjahr 2020, paid us a visit. The district head of Gries Nina-Marie Wolf, the former building culture coordinator of the province of Styria Günter Koberg and the artists Franz Konrad and Stefan Lozar from the neighbouring Schaumbad were present as well. And not to forget companies involved in the ongoing construction process: employees of the company Steirerhaus from Weiz, and Albert Serschen managing director of the joinery Hobel & Späne from the district of Gries.

Wasted Space and Space for Waste – Club Night #18 review

„47Nord15Ost“ Axonometrie © winwinoffice
„47Nord15Ost“ axonometric © winwinoffice

A Club Night on the winning project of the EUROPAN15 competition lies behind us. In this Europe-wide competition, young architects and planners develop ideas for current urban challenges. The project “47Nord15Ost” by winwinoffice was convincing for the designated area in Graz between Puchstraße and Mur in the centre of which Schaumbad, Freies Atelierhaus Graz is located.

Celia Cardona Cava and Luigi Costamagna approach the “Wasted Space and Space for Waste” of this hybrid zone between industrial plants and waste recycling, creative hubs and residential areas with a methodological analysis. The parameters based on this – densification, space for people, cooperative services and synergies between the actors –  create a well thought-out whole that nevertheless leaves plenty of room for more ideas.

The collaborative further development of “47Nord15Ost” on site has been interrupted due to the corona crisis. Therefore, it is even more important to bring all stakeholders back to the table as soon as possible. Iris Kaltenegger from EUROPAN Austria also emphasises this. These are the residents and current users of the area as well as all other relevant stakeholders and the city of Graz itself.

Club Hybrid will provide a platform for this continuation. Celia and Luigi Ende will be our guests at the end of July to continue working on their idea and to discuss it further with hopefully numerous participants.

Invitation Club Night #18

Club Night #18, onlin

Guests: Celia Cardona Cava and Luigi Costamagna (winwinoffice), Iris Kaltenegger (EUROPAN Austria)

“47Nord15Ost” is the name of a project by the Spanish-Italian collective for architecture and urban development winwinoffice for the Graz based area around Puchstraße and Freies Atelierhaus Schaumbad. This winning project of the EUROPAN15 competition on the topic of “productive cities” is more than a purely urban design. It aims to regenerate a piece of the city and create an identity that allows for a shared, mature and democratic way of life.

We are excited and looking forward to a presentation of “47Nord15Ost” by Luigi and Celia from winwinoffice at Club Night #18. Iris Kaltenegger, the Secretary General of EUROPAN Austria, will be joining as well.

We are looking forward to seeing you online!

Start of construction in wind and weather – Club Night #17

Club Hybrid, Probebohrung 23. März 2021
Club Hybrid, test drill, 23 March 2021

Cold, wet, wintry conditions prevailed in Graz on Monday evening and thus also in Herrgottwiesgasse 161. However, our club evening takes place in all weathers and therefore it was possible to witness the ground-breaking ceremony in the dry. A few team members only attended the meeting in the construction container on site and also offered a somewhat “blown away” tour of the property and the construction site with camera.

Heidi Pretterhofer and Michael Rieper gave insights into the themes dealt with at Club Hybrid – from “Ahnung + Planung” on the ground question, speculation and improvisation to “It’s already there!” about what is already there, what are we building on and what role does Graz play. Here is an overview in the themes. The formats and some of the guests of the Club Hybrid in summer were also presented. In May the programme will go online.

Christian Mayer and the City Councillor for Culture Günter Riegler, as well as other participants, once again placed the demonstrative building and its themes in the context of the city and the Graz Kulturjahr 2020. As Günter Riegler put it nicely: with the Club Hybrid, a laboratory is being created for a common preoccupation with the resource of public space, and this is ultimately what is at stake in all questions of urban planning, densification, dedications, participation as well as in “how we want to live”, which is the theme of the year of culture.

In this sense, may the rain fog lift and the sun shine again. Especially in Herrgottwiesgasse where the Club Hybrid will take shape in the coming weeks. You can now follow the construction work live on our webcam –> Club Hybrid Webcam.

Participants on site:
Heidi Pretterhofer and Michael Rieper (Club Hybrid), City Councillor for Culture Günter Riegler and Christian Mayer (Graz Kulturjahr 2020)

Herrgottwiesgasse 161––since last week, Club Hybrid has its own house number and now it’s finally time to get started: on Monday, the groundbreaking cut for our demontration building Club Hybrid will be set. Unfortunately, the current Covid-19 sanctions do not allow us to celebrate together on site, however, it is our wish to share this moment.

We are therefore moving the ground-breaking ceremony into virtual space and will be streaming live from Herrgottwiesgasse. Heidi Pretterhofer and Michael Rieper talk about the construction project and give a first preview of the programme in summer. We also welcome on site City Councillor for Culture Günter Riegler as well as Christian Mayer, programme manager of Graz Kulturjahr 2020. An online club evening with a view to which we cordially invite you.

We are looking forward to seeing you online!

Invitation Club Night #16

Tuesday, 23 March, 2021, 20:00
Club Night #16, online

Our guest: AKT, Markus Bogensberger and Folke Köbberling

A different take on building. As artistic intervention, as an experiment in terms of sustainability and a living building culture, as a joint act. Building beyond economic constraints and market logic. This is the topic of our upcoming Club Night #16.

With the artist Folke Köbberling and the collective AKT, we have invited two representatives of such an experimental approach. Both of them will also be working and building at Club Hybrid during their residency in summer.

Markus Bogensberger will also accompany us through the evening. As a curator and architect, he was himself active at the interface of art and architecture for a long time, he was director of HDA Graz until 2019 and is now the building culture coordinator of the province of Styria



We are looking forward to seeing you online!

Three times development please – Club Night #15 review

Eyslergasse Puntigam © Club Hybrid
Eyslergasse © Club Hybrid

The guests of Club Night #15 come from very different backgrounds, what they have in common is an idealistic commitment to the appropriation and ongoing development of a venue. The location in the urban “foggy zone” in the south of Graz, where commerce, industry, housing and traffic sometimes collide, brings with it its own special conditions. However, the challenges are met with enthusiasm and ideas.

Investor Christian Kossegg, supported by his family, has been developing the approximately 3ha large Taggerwerk site, including a historic industrial building complex, for 10 years. By now he rents it out to around 60 tenants, from artists’ studios to start-ups to sports facilities. Fikret Fazlic runs the Islamic Cultural Centre Graz, a place of open religious and social interaction. With the construction of the mosque according to a design by Gerhard Springer, this area is also far from being fully developed. Further plans are due to being completed in near future. And finally, Helmuth Scheuch, who knows his district like the back of his hand. One of his major issues is traffic, he focuses on the extension of cycle and footpaths as well as public transport. Incidentally, the permeable calm of Herrgottwiesgasse is to be preserved according to his plans.

Invitation

Tuesday, 9 March 2021, 20:00
Club Night #15, online


Our guests: Fikret Fazlic (Islamischen Kulturzentrum Graz), Christian Kossegg (Taggerwerk) and Helmuth Scheuch.


We take another look at the neighbourhood, this time in the immediate area: Fikret Fazlic, the imam of the mosque of the Islamic Cultural Centre Graz, is our guest at Club Evening #15. Also present is Christian Kossegg, who with the Taggerwerk has opened up a huge area of the district for various uses. And since Club Hybrid is located in the district of Gries, yet starts practically on Puntigam’s doorstep, we are also looking forward to Helmuth Scheuch, the head of the 17th district of Graz.


We are looking forward to seeing you online!

About hoverings states and straddles – Club Night #14 review

studio magic

When friendships develop into professional partnerships, it is usually more than an expedient alliance. The interpersonal dynamic can be enormously inspiring and leads to corresponding creative output. Both the Theater im Bahnhof and studio magic, the guests of Club Night #14, are familiar with these happy hovering states of shared exchange and take-off.

However, working in a collective also means permanent negotiation and straddling between changing careers, the interests of individuals and the group, between precarious situations and the common also as a social network.

There were exciting insights: into the Theater im Bahnhof on the one hand, with its 30-year history, which has created social security with a basic income for its members. And on the other hand, the comparatively young architecture collective, which, although in the midst of production, is still searching for the social superstructure that corresponds to its way of working.

As for Club Hybrid the starting point for the idea of collective action is the venue. For Malte Höfner, who researches the topic of sharing in relation to urban space, this is an exciting approach, especially in this special urban area of Graz. What we all have in common is not only consuming, but also wanting to act and create in urban space, especially off uniformed city centres.

Invitation

Tuesday, February 23, 2021, 8:00 pm
Club Night #14, 
online


Our guests: Malte Höfner, Thomas Kain and Patricia Wess (studio magic), Monika Klengel (Theater im Bahnhof)


The Club Hybrid as a cooperative or association, these ideas still circulate in the thinking space of our open-use experiment. We continue therefore to think about forms of collaboration. What are good models for working as a collective? What is the common denominator and social umbrella? Collaborative producing? A space to share or a shared space? What are the social and economic implications?

We discuss questions like these in Club Night #14 with Malte Höfner, geographer and spatial researcher, Monika Klengel from Theater im Bahnhof and Patricia Wess and Thomas Kain from the architecture collective studio magic.

We are looking forward to seeing you online!

The screwed district – Club Night #13 review

Martin Behr and Martin Osterider, Triester

Gries is the “most screwed district of Graz” as Tristan Ammerer put it in Club Night #13. However, as became evident again this evening, there is indeed potential in this disadvantage. The hybrid coexistence in the foggy zone around the Club is the best example of this. Or “Triester”, a project by Martin Behr and Martin Osterider, who have been photographically documenting this “unsensational living space” for almost twenty years. This long-term visual journey, published by Camera Austria, already comprises fifteen volumes, and many of the motifs have become cult.

The struggle for green spaces, the enormous pollution caused by traffic and heavy industry, the socio-economic degradation of the district – these are the political issues in Gries today as they were then. District leader Nina-Marie Wolf (SPÖ) and her predecessor Tristan Ammerer (Grüne) are fighting on sometimes tough fronts for a better quality of life for Gries and its population, even if it is only a football pitch. Perhaps the Club Hybrid can also be an offer here in the future.

Schaumstunden – Club Night #12 review

© Franz Konrad / Schaumbad, Freies Atelierhaus Graz
Franz Konrad, Ghost exhibition

With Schaumbad, a highly active production space has been located in Puchstraße for years. The Freie Atelierhaus Graz began as a self-managed off-space and is now a professionalised art institution and workspace for around 50 artists and creative businesses. Schaumbad has long since expanded its exhibition space, reaching out into the foggy zone and becoming an artistic-social actor in its so called “Triesterviertel”.

In Club Night #12, Eva Ursprung and Franz Konrad gave insights into the diverse activities and external as well as internal challenges of this hybrid pool of activity. Its transformation is far from complete: the Schaumbad has just been reorganised with an own artistic director, and winwinoffice is about to redesign the area architecturally and in terms of urban development. The winning project of the “Europan 15” competition will be the subject of a separate Club Night.

Reunion: Onlinemeeting

Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 20:30, online


Club Hybrid has not heard from for a long time. Everything is, because of corona, postponed for a year. On June 25, 2020, the foundation stone was laid at Herrgottwiesgasse 155/157 in the Gries/Puntigam district of Graz. Program concept, space concept and ideas where to dock were presented. Despite the rain it was a pleasure! Watch the video incl. drone flight over the property here.

We want to exchange with you and find out again how it looks like with the possible formation of association and cooperative. Who is interested in this? The club reports on the current status quo. Your involvement in network meetings and corresponding actions will continue to be at the center of the club hybrid life, which we also want to put on digital feet. What could the digital club look like?

The club is growing: Claudia Gerhäusser and Michael Sladek are new to the Club Hybrid team and introduce themselves.

We are looking forward to the numerous participation.

Best regards,
the Club Hybrid team

Review: Public inspection on 25 June 2020

Even if it didn’t rain or rained only a little before, at 18:00 the wind quartet of the Graz Linien played and raindrops fell from the sky. The following 90 minutes were a more or less humid happy event with some distance under several umbrellas or sunshades, which were provided by the helpful neighbours. So almost everything fit. Johannes Leitich successfully drew Beatrice Bucher’s distance concept and the outline of the Club Hybrid on the meadow the day before. Ten harvesting ladders were positioned so that the area was easily manageable. The Club Hybrid logo was positioned centrally. An ambitious setting, including setting a “Club Hybrid 2020” foundation stone.


Heidi Pretterhofer and Michael Rieper welcomed the guests, friends and participants to the public inspection in the rain and talked about the ambitious goals and programmatic priorities of the club. City councillor Günter Riegler, standing on a harvest ladder, spontaneously reported on the potentials of the various projects within the Kulturstadt Graz 2020. Wolfgang Malik, CEO of Graz Holding, also took part in the joint inspection. When the rain became less, Milan Mijalkovic climbed up a harvest ladder and recited “Kultur war Propaganda“. 

To ensure that the event is not forgotten, Ralo Mayer flew over the outline of the Club Hybrid and the network of routes before, during and after the rain. Another public inspection without rain will be made in summer, including harvesters and friends.

Many thanks to all supporters, contributors and visitors who defied the precipitation.


Paradigma »Hybrid« – eine Collage

This post is only available in German.

RUDOLF KOHOUTEK

„Versetzen, Einfügen, Einwachsen – das sind die Umschreibungen der Aufpfropfung als einer Agrartechnik, mit der seit der Antike im Obst- und Weinbau Pflanzen veredelt werden. Dabei ist die Aufpfropfung nicht nur ein Verfahren, um (…) Pflanzen zu hybridisieren und damit eine quantitative und qualitative Steigerung der Erträge zu erreichen, sondern das Pfropfen hatte auch immer schon einen spielerischen, einen experimentellen Charakter – und tritt somit als eine Form biologischer bricolage in Erscheinung.“ [1]

„Zugleich bringt die Kulturtechnik des Pfropfens einen Begriff der Schnittstelle ins Spiel, der ein weites Feld kulturwissenschaftlicher und medientechnischer Implikationen eröffnet. Die Schnittstelle steht (…) für die Notwendigkeit, ein ‘Dazwischen’ (Debray) zu organisieren.“ [2]

„Dieses Dazwischen, so Debray, ähnelt dem, was Bruno Latour ,Hybride’ nennt, also Mediationen, die sowohl technischer als auch sozialer und kultureller Natur sind. Um mit derartigen Kreuzungen und Vermischungen umzugehen, sind wir sehr schlecht ausgestattet. Mit anderen Worten, es besteht Nachholbedarf: Gefragt ist eine Typologie von Hybridisierungsformen im Spannungsfeld von Vermischung und Vermittlung.“ [3]

Invitation to the public inspection

Thursday 25 June 2020, 18:00, Herrgottwiesgasse 155/157, 8020 Graz, tram line 5, stop Lauzilgasse

Even if everything should already be ready now and the future seems somewhat indescribable to us, we refer to the demonstration building that will be visible in a year’s time and its future scenarios. Harvest ladders will help to determine the dimensions and maintain an overview. Together we explore the area at Herrgottwiesgasse 155/157 and discuss the concepts of future uses. The place markings illustrate the boundaries and refer to the necessary personal safety distance of at least two meters

We play the opening, which will not take place in 2020.
We play distanced collectivity.
We play not being at home.
We are playing public.
We play with Milan Mijalkovic and the Musikverein der Graz Linien.

Etudes for hybridization

“Hybrid” is a nice word: starts at the bottom, “hy” and quickly ascends: “id”. Delicate consonants. Symmetry hyb-rid. But one shouldn’t be seduced by letters, as the virus so impressively demonstrates.

Cow bells with saxophone, church bells with drum&bass, door bells with piano accompaniment. Polonaise. Steel helmets and pyjamas for the opera ball. Canceled.

Computer with petals. Printer with cheese cubes. Books with screwdrivers. Table with empty boxes. Staging and trying out hybrid situations.

We fill a washing machine with different coloured clothes, plastic toys, food, washing powder and start a gentle cycle.

2021: Vegan confectionery and pest control (car to give up, virus protection, addiction counselling for stock owners / stock market players)

2022: Unemployed-Qualification and radiation-free hybrid idyll

Postponement, Spring 2021

Dear friends, partners, interested parties,

After much consideration and after consulting with all those responsible, we decided to postpone the Club Hybrid until spring 2021due to the current situation.

On one hand, this is a shame, of course, but on the other hand it also gives the opportunity to work even more specifically on the requirements that such a project entails. Therefore we ask, especially all interested and possible participants: Stay in contact with us, continue to exchange ideas and help us to create the basics, which lead to a successful start of the Club Hybrid in 2021. We’ll keep you updated as soon as possible. 

Thanks for your understanding,
stay healthy and best regards,
your Club Hybrid

Cancellation

Due to the current regulations regarding the spread of the corona virus, today’s information event has to be canceled. Thank you for understanding.

The planned film screening of “Der Stoff, aus dem Träume sind”, on March 18, 4:00 p.m. at the KIZ RoyalKino, will take place according to the guidelines of a maximum of 100 visitors. The Club Hybrid team will also be on site to answer any questions.

Program, platform, association

At the last meeting, the summer program, the various formats and the weekly schedule were presented again. Recommendations and ideas for the individual formats are welcome and will be collected by the Club Hybrid Team -> please send suggestions to club@clubhybrid.at.

In order to intensify the exchange of living and working opportunities within the group, a digital platform is being sought that meets the requirements. Examples include Matrix/Riot or Basecamp.

Furthermore, the association to be founded represents an opportunity for the club hybrid to continue even after 2020. For this purpose, actors are being sought who take on formal positions such as chairman, secretary and finances. The team also accepts suggestions and interested parties.

Further dates: A first glance at the property will take place on March 6th, 2020, at 12:00, Herrgottwiesgasse 157, 8020 Graz. A next meeting is scheduled for March 11th, 6:00 p.m., place will be announced.

Review, program, association

Review eighth info meeting on February 18, 2020, 6:00 p.m., Forum Stadtpark

In order to provide an overview of the points discussed to those who were unable to attend, there will always be a summary of the previous information evenings at this point:

At the beginning of the last meeting, Michael Rieper presented the schedule and program of the Club Hybrid. The Club Hybrid will start operating at Herrgottwiesgasse 157 from June 25, 2020 to September 13, 2020. The program is based on a weekly schedule consisting of workshops, lectures, discussions, residencies, group meetings, etc. The following six major topics are hereby taken up: It’s already there! / Idea + planning / Mine – yours Wildly combining / World + model / Play with things.

In addition, a platform is to be established, digitally (chat) and in physical form (billboard), to enable different groups to exchange information with one another, to search for new members or land / buildings as a common living or working space. Finally, the reformulated statutes of the association to be founded were discussed. The planned changes will be sent out in a newsletter before the next appointment.

The next meeting will take place on Thursday, February 27th, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. in the Kulturverein oag, Lendplatz 33, 8020 Graz.

Eighth Meeting: Outlook

At the last meeting we had a visit from two residents of the Willy * Fred house project in Linz. Florian and Micha described the career of Willy * Fred and how the project was organized structurally and financially. The HabiTAT organization and its forms of support for projects and groups were also presented.

The next meeting is dedicated to our association again, including a proposal of the statutes and possible future scenarios. There is also an overview of the Club Hybrid program in summer.

Eighth Meeting: Tuesday, February 18th, 2020, 6:00 p.m., Forum Stadtpark, Stadtpark 1, 8010 Graz


Sixth meeting: structures & association

At the last meeting, we talked about requirements and needs in the context of working and living. In the joint brainstorming, the need for a structure for such a common project quickly became clear.

That means, we’re activating or creating an association!

At the next meeting, the following options will be discussed: founding a club, adopting existing structures or joining an association, such as a Habitat or Kumpanei. We are excited!

Thursday, January 30, 2020 at 5 p.m. at Printi, Mariahilferstr. 30, 8020 Graz.

Fifth Meeting

Another information evening will take place on January 23, from 5 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. in the Forum Stadtpark, Stadtpark 1, 8010 Graz. The aim of the evening is to define our needs and requirements for a future space. Working groups should explicitly explore room types, space requirements and needs so that they can later be based on concrete project ideas.


Fourth Meeting

Another information meeting will take place on January 13, 2020, 6:00 p.m. at Forum Stadtpark, Stadtpark 1, 8010 Graz.

Third Meeting

The second meeting was also the subject of intensive discussion and other potential locations were discussed. Also, autonomous initiatives and projects were presented and possible forms of organization of future residents were explored. Thanks to everyone involved!

The next meeting will take place on December 19, at 4 p.m., in Café Wolf, Annenstraße 18, 8020 Graz.


Living @ Club Hybrid? 2nd Meeting


Second event 10.12.2019, 18:00, Forum Stadtpark Salon

To clarify any questions, to find possible locations and to make further contacts, a second network meeting will take place on December 10 in the Forum Stadtpark, Stadtpark 1, 8010 Graz.

First Meeting

One of the premise of Club Hybrid is that the ideas, visions and dreams of an ideal living space can be controversial. Thanks for the interest and willingness to exchange ideas – first possibilities were outlined, ideological and generational conflict potentials were explored and first cooperations could be initiated. Another meeting takes place on 10.12. instead, information will follow soon. 


Living @ Club Hybrid?

Looking for residents

After experimenting in alternative forms of living and working the project will transform into a hybrid demonstration building that will be developed in collaboration with its future users. Currently we are looking for participants and interested people, who want to take part in the “Club Hybrid” and help shaping it – and finally, peers who can imagine moving into the demonstration building and relocating their places of residence and work to the “Club”.

Information event 13.11.2019, 19:00, Forum Stadtpark

A first presentation and a network meeting for all interested parties will take place on November 13 in the Forum Stadtpark, Stadtpark 1, 8010 Graz.
