Future Exchange by raumlaborberlin

The German architectural collective raumlaborberlin realised this exhibition architecture with a research station called the ‘Futures Exchange’ for this year’s Transmediale festival in Berlin.

Future Exchange by raumlaborberlin

“As primary building materials, the doors of East German panel flats which had to yield to wrecking balls have been salvaged and re-appropriated for use. Originating from Halle-Neustadt they are a symbol for the shrinking and deconstruction of this town, which was conceived in the early 60’s as part of a utopian vision for the post-war modernist city. The doors, representing waste and the failure of the 20th Century’s ideological struggles, now find new life as transmediale.10’s temporary space station for process-based artistic practice.”
