After sketching the topic HOUSING in three publications (Housing, Population and Housing, Systems and Housing), TTP is now entering a new phase.

Although the topic of communication and information has been treated in various essays over the years, experience has also been gained with contemporary techniques, but now the problems arising from the cultural model and its inter-dependencies, as well as system considerations on general housing meed to be discussed.

There are misunderstandings from small groups to large groups, and it is more than a miracle that an exchange is possible at all.

It is not only the basic communication, which is a problem.

If one were to orient oneself towards Wittgenstein (which one is not supposed to talk about, one has to be silent about it), then hardly any communication and information should be taking place.

In the assumption of better understanding, new terms are invented, which instead of closer definition create still new questions and thus new answers with new terms and for improvement with the same, similar or different concepts or ideas.
Already the analogue exchange of ideas on earth is more than problematic, but when the digital exchange comes into play with additional time or distance factors, then arise the real problems!

Housing in the closed system is the protection, the material protection, - the immateriality that demands the traditional humanity!

Informal Think Tank

Bookmark and Share

By Prof Dr Norbert Pintsch / IPC, FPAC, FBTC, DGFK

NGO projects are non-profit ventures, i.e. altruistic projects. The critical viewer quickly realizes whether the project is financially beneficial to the circle of contributors or a family.

If the facility is useful for a family and it finances the life of this family, which also applies to large families, so they should honestly convert it into private limited company.

The project carriers and the supporters of the project normally do not share this view, for which there are two reasons:

- the project carriers, the users and the suppliers, are simply too connected to each other to recognize this fact, and
- The supporters are too superficial, so that the of concealment is not perceived.

Another widespread problem is the inability of the participants to identify themselves as a project in the global and increasingly uniform world.

This means:

- Unknowingly, economic opportunities are transferred from A to B. These possibilities were in the past the results of colonialism, in the present it is the short-sighted spread of standards of so-called industrialized countries to the so-called developing countries.

Now it could be argued that life in a country is never one-sided, and in every country there is a gap between the upper and lower classes.

That is true, but the purpose of NGO projects is not to participate in the transfer of external values, but to preserve the peculiarities of the local values.

If this purpose is not shared by the project carriers, who operate under the cloak of selflessness, then the transformation into a serious private limited company should be undertaken and the principles of profit maximization followed.

The voluntary work, which was part of the long-term project work in various countries, was therefore discontinued and commercial consultation on usual rules for international business were offered.

Even if the above argument may seem antisocial to the reader, the rule remains: one and one is two, - not more, but also not less!

A wrong must be named as wrong!

Development of art through digital technology and biochemical adaptations

Bookmark and Share

Prof Dr Norbert Pintsch, SRF / FPAC

As already often mentioned, it is not about either this ... or this, but about both; this-as well as this. This does not mean that from now on a new form of art is available, but rather: it is still in the phase of development, maybe the effects of this are unimaginable to contemporary critics, but this is always the case with imminent upheavals in approach.

We had already written "About the End of the Arts and Crafts" - in means here that unique items will gradually disappear and will play a role only with certain collectors in the high-price segment, - for the masses remain increasingly only copies, that is: mass produced products , This may not be understandable to the contemporaries, but it is so.

We have already written about "Polycrystalline and Bio-Molecular Structures in mobile and Immobile Towns (Architecture and Urban Development)" - this runs parallel to the upcoming art, whereby the term art is to be understood in a comprehensive sense, with painting, literature , Music - all in the traditional sense.

What awaits our children and grandchildren, if they are not already infiltrated in this direction?

Creative interactive consumption, with -Virtual theater, where one can play classics with friends, but also let yourself act with "stars", -Virtual design, with classic role models, but also by experiencing neural highways, -Virtual experience in games and sports in animated roles including traveling through the cosmos, as well as movements in, through and on the planet.

The reference to already existing infiltration refers to the computer-assisted film and music productions, computer simulations, - ultimately, all areas of life are at least affected, even if it is not perceived as such. It is valid here: we see what we want to see, - hear what we mean to hear, think what we like! What can be thought, if the thinking subject is also the object at the same time? The Artificial Intelligence (AI) is immune to this problem!

The question of why and for what reason we had already discussed under the topic

"Regarding the development of housing in a closed system".

Es una gran alegría, que Tanto Mejor (ONG) haya hecho posible una exposición, como la que se logró, sobre veinte años de actividades en artesanías artísticas, técnica alternativa, como C+I (Comunicacion y Informacion) en Palacio de la Cultura en Chiquinquira.

Gracias a la señora Camila, señor Oscar y señor Romilio y por supuesto al trabajo conjunto con la señora Gloria y la señora Stella se pudo dar una visión de los locales hasta las actividades internacionales; sobre todo es valorado el trabajo de la promotora Doctora Senta.


It is a matter of great satisfaction that Tanto Mejor (NOG) was able to organize an exhibition of more than 20 years of craftsmanship, alternative techniques and C + I (Communication and Information) at the Palacio de la Cultura in Chiquinquira, which was also a great success.

Thanks to Senora Camila, Senor Oscar and Senor Romillio but of course also through the efforts of Senora Gloria and Senora Stella an overview of the local as well as international activities could be given, but above all, the work of the initiator Dr. Senta was appreciated.

SPAET y Ramiro Ortiz

Bookmark and Share

Especialmente gratificante es el desarrollo del doble talento de Ramiro Andres Ortiz Carjaval, que por un lado trabaja con el metal y por otro lado se desenvuelve como artista. La combinación de computadores y arte en el plazo de un año fue complejo y productivo a través de los trabajos implementados. Qué posibilidades tiene el artista en el mundo digitalizado, que está marcado por “Multikaten”. Una respuesta es, con ayuda de CAD- anexo/inversión para estructurar de manera individual, también satisfacer los deseos de los clientes, al mismo tiempo, pero no multiplicar sino para representar una marca distintiva. Prof Pintsch y Ramiro Andres Ortiz Carvajal discutieron el tema, quizá una certificación es posible, en la que el artista asegura la unicidad.

Interesante en este proyecto es la transformación de pensamiento de Frithjof Bergmann en relación con el nuevo trabajo.

SPAET and Ramiro Ortiz

Particularly pleasing is the development of the double talented Ramiro Andres Ortiz Carjaval, who works on the one hand as a metal worker, but on the other hand also as an artist. Within a year, the combination of computer and art was multifaceted and productive due to the work done. What possibilities does the artist have in a digitized world that is shaped more and more by multiplicators? One answer is to use the CAD system to make individual designs in order to meet customer wishes - but at the same time not to multiply the designs, but to keep their uniqueness. Prof Pintsch and Ramiro Ortiz discussed the topic, maybe a certification is possible, in which the artist can certify the uniqueness.

Interesting in this project is the implementation of the thoughts of Frithjof Bergmann in connection with the new work!

El trabajo de SPAET estuvo influenciado este año por la inminente exposición especial de Tanto Mejor, que es el socio de SPAET.

La reunión con el director de Palacio de la Cultura, Oscar Torres, la profesora Ana Camila Chiquillo y el periodista Romillio Rodriguez Fajardo y Prof Pintsch sumamente exitosa. Prof Pintsch presentó material informativo, una selección aproximada de 20 fotos de proyectos, que ilustran el alcance del trabajo de Tanto Meyor, cuyos los pies de fotos aún deben prepararse.

Además, se debe resaltar en rojo los socios internacionales, el efecto de los diferentes asociados dentro y fuera de Colombia. Con esto se hace evidente, que Tanto Meyor regional trabaja junto con otros artesanos artísticos.

SPAET - News

The work of SPAET this year was marked by the forthcoming specialization of Tanto Meyor, which is indeed the cooperation partner of SPAET.

The meeting with the director of the Palacio de la Cultura, Oscar Torres, the teacher Ana Camila Chiquillo and the journalist Romillio Rodriguez Fajardo and Prof Pintsch was very successful. Prof Pintsch presented the information material, a selection of about 20 project photographs, which illustrates the range of work of Tanto Meyor, to which the captions must still be prepared.

In addition, the international cooperation with various partners inside and outside Colombia should also be highlighted. It should be made clear that Tanto Meyor also works regionally with other artisans.

Para los amigos en el universidad nacionale de bogota

Hasta finales del año 2017 se han dado tres publicaciones sobre vivienda de:

a) Vivienda

De una serie de artículos para un revista técnica entre 2008 y 2012, ha sido presentada la traducción a alemán con gráficos originales e ilustraciones, en la que el tema vivienda ha sido tratado desde diferentes puntos de vista (economía, tecnología, ciencia, filosofía, etc.).

b) Población y vivienda

De una conversación entre Prof Dr Mackensen y Prof Dr Pintsch, resultó una comparación de dos investigaciones y métodos de enseñanza: la tradicional con citas y referencias y la no convencional casi sin bibliografía, lo que deliberadamente deja al lector en la búsqueda de la fuente y así lo estimula a otra forma de actividad.

c) Sistemas y Vivienda

De aspectos tipo mosaico a la vista del sistema holístico, abierto y cerrado con énfasis en el ­sistema cerrado. En contribuciones poco detalladas, se muestra la variedad: física, de relacionada a la tierra a la unidad lejana y el fenómeno psíquico de ser independiente en enfermedades especiales (esclerosis lateral amiotrófica).

Self-contained note on three book projects

At the end of the year 2017 there are 3 publications about living concepts:


From a series of articles for a technical magazine between 2008 and 2012, the German translation is now available with original graphics and illustrations, in which the topic of Housing is discussed from different points of view (economy, technology, science, philosophy, etc.).


A conversation between Prof Dr Mackemsen and Prof Dr Pintsch resulted in a comparison of two research and teaching methods: the traditional one with quotations and references and the unconventional one, almost without references, which deliberately leaves the reader to look for the source and thus stimulates him to another form of activity.


From mosaic-like aspects to the system view between holistic, open and closed system, with the emphasis on the closed system.

In sketchy contributions, the complete range is discussed: the physical, earth-related to the far-off independent system and the psychic phenomenon of being self-contained for example in special diseases (amyottrophic lateral sclerosis).
