    We make the office a Betterplace

    We were asked by the German Crowd Funding platform Betterplace to design their new offices for 50 people here in Berlin – and we had to realise that if you work for an internet start-up things can not be business as usual.

    We had a very tight deadline and a small budget to realise their new working environment out of scratch. Within six weeks we managed to finish the first phase of an ongoing process. The basic needs such as electricity, a sanitary unit, a pantry area, meeting rooms and some storage are in place.

    Continuing working in a collaborative process with the client we will realise more objects such as a lounge area and small meeting places every quarter until we created a better place for them to work. Hopefully it will be the best. We will post some images of the process and the finalised first stage soon.

The sound recordings will be used for an open call to artists of the region curated by Berlin based visual artist Lillevan.

    ROUNDTABLE: RE-CLOTHING THE CITY – WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FABRICS AND URBANISM?

    Buildings are responsible for about 50 % of the countrywide energy consumption. The EU-carbon roadmap is envisioning a 90% carbon reduction of the building sector until 2050. This requires a re-clad- ding of the entire building stock within the European Union – other countries will certainly follow.

    Combined with insulation, fabrics can potentially play a significant role in this re-cladding task (fabric composites / high tech fabrics like used for outdoor clothing). Fab- ric re-cladding systems could potentially be inexpensive, provide a relatively fast installation and has an “adjustable” esthetics.
