Raumlaborberlin: Acting In Public

Published by Jovis
Edited by raumlaborberlin, Julia Maier, Heidelberger Kunstverein.

Mountain hiking in the ruins of Berlin's Palast der Republik, former home of the East German parliament; building a hotel in an abandoned prefab high-rise; creating an architectural sculpture in an allotment garden... For the last 10 years the radical, utopian Berlin-based interdisciplinary team raumlaborberlin has been carrying out sensational interventions and activities that shape a new perception of architecture--acting in public in order to force the questioning of public and private space and activities.
In this galvanizing and well designed volume, a conversation on design processes and working methods within raumlabor complements detailed presentations of the group's most important projects while an illustrated index introduces 72 projects in text and image. The firm's objective is to attract attention to alternative strategies of urban renewal and urban planning and to encourage residents to become involved in shaping their own living environments: "We call on people to get involved, we want to show them that becoming part of urban processes is worth the risk."
