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.”

‘Snuggle’ is a form of modular accomodation, made of a platform for the mattress, which is enclosed by willow meshwork and a weatherproof textile coat. Three identical platform elements belong to three variable, open or closed coverings. The nozzle of the open ones can either be window, entrance or tunnel to the next room. Every room has a separate entrance, which is individually closable. Sanitary facilities are located in central modules.

Snuggle’s modules hang on a framework – winding around the trees, the hotel’s network is adapted to the actual countryside. After having done its service at one place ‘Snuggle’ can easily be removed and rebuilt at another place.

The inflatable structure of 'Spacebuster'

The Berlin based interdisciplinary collective raumlabor was founded in 1999 and is focused on visionary projects in urban and architectural contexts.

Their latest project Spacebuster is a mobile inflatable structure – a portable, expandable pavilion which is mounted on a van and provided place to a 10-day programme of lectures, workshops, screenings and performances, organised by the New York based gallery Storefront.

The pavilion is comprised of an inflatable bubble-like dome that emerges from a step van that also houses the compressor that keeps the Spacebuster inflated. The dome expands and organically adjusts to its surroundings, be it in a field, a wooded park, or below a highway overpass.”

Spcebuster provided place to a 10 day programme  of lectures, workshops, screenings and performances.
