Forum 02/2022

New issue of our university magazine

How could the open spaces on the future campus of Mainz University of Applied Sciences be used innovatively? What could areas for student life and working on campus look like, spaces that are inspiring and sustainable and, on top of that, climate-neutral? What is the social responsibility of academic institutions that are committed to the common good? – Science as a factor in urban development (Wissenschaft als Faktor der Stadtentwicklung) is the main topic of the new issue of our university magazine Forum.

The topics covered by the issue range from the social relevance of design today to concepts for the revitalization of existing buildings and the question of how the university can address the history of its Holzstrasse site, which it will vacate in early 2024. In addition, on the occasion of its third anniversary, there is an interview with the director of the LUX Pavilion, Thessa Brenner, along with a series of portraits by graduate Katharina Dubno, who is campaigning for equal rights and women’s rights with her current photography project.

The print edition of Forum is available in the Holzstrasse foyer, in the Magistrale on campus and in the LUX Pavilion.
