At the end of the winter term 2022/23, the graduates of the Design and Architecture departments of the Peter Behrens School of Arts at the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf will present their projects during the Werkschau Design & Architecture 22/23.

Around 200 young designers and architects specializing in Architecture, Interior Design and Civic Design as well as Communication Design, Exhibition Design, New Craft Object Design and Retail Design are looking forward to your visit.

You can take a look at the graduation projects here.

What good advice should you give young designers and architects to take home with them on their journey through life? Beyond the ubiquitous cultural pessimism, all potential wisdom can be found somewhere within the information garbage of our civilization. Semiotic fragments and constellations that can be combined and reassembled in many different ways. You can even find happiness. But where do you start? Where to look?

The inspiration for the Werkschau design is Marjory, the ‘all-knowing, all-seeing Trash Heap’ from the 80s children’s series The Fraggles. Marjory—a living compost heap with magical abilities and alternate genders—serves as an oracle to the Fraggles. There are also two rat-like sidekicks: Gunge and Philo, who act as representatives and interpreters of the wisdom of the Trash Heap. Occasionally they decorate Marjory with jewellery made from garbage. If the two rats say “The Trash Heap has spoken!,” questioning time for petitioners is over.
