"Raumstruktur", installation, 2009
raumlabor_berlin is engaged with temporarily transforming locations: a gallery into a laboratory, a public square into a location for scientific discourse or a cold corridor into a place with new social qualities. When spaces are meant not only to be neutral shells for content but also to convey particular functions and serve as catalysts, the way of dealing with these spaces, their design and programming have to be integral components of the overall conception. For CTM.09, raumlabor_berlin will modify the corridor of Kunstraum Kreuzberg / Bethanien – a space of transit – into a communicative and social centre for the building. For this, they will invent a new structure to be built into the space, which will be constructed out of doors from demolished pre-cast concrete buildings in Halle-Neustadt. raumlabor_berlin is a group for architecture and urban development. In addition to their architectural work, they are also involved in urban development, actions, landscape architecture, the design of public spaces and artistic installations.
