It is an honour to be teaching at the TU Berlin this semester alongside Professor Hermann Schlimme and Helle Schröder Architect. Together we are teaching a Masters / Bachelors module to design a Survival Lounge (Sara Ahmed) for students of the Institute for Architecture. The Survival Lounge will be constucted in the Winter of 2020 / 21 and opened in 2021 at the TU Berlin.
In parallel I am co-teaching a second seminar: "Berliner Architektinnen: Oral History" with Professor Hermann Schlimme. 26 oral history interviews recorded in this seminar will be part of the exhibition [FRAU] ARCHITEKT*IN that will open in June 2021 at the TU Berlin.
The Call for Papers for the upcoming symposium "Dream - Play - Challenge: the Future of Residential Living" that I am co-running with Wiltrud Simbürger is live.
2. Improving urban space and local ecologies
The recently completed project in Berlin-Kreuzberg brings one of the largest inhabitable green walls - 200 square metres in size - to Berlin. The new residential building includes eight flats with box-balconies where residents can stand within their own vertical garden above the street. In this project the challenge lay in integrating the latest green "living wall" technology into a façade with 8 balconies and 20 windows. Here architecture, urban planning, ecology, structural engineering and fire protection were successfully brought together in one design. The building was selected for exhibition at DA! Architecture in und aus Berlin organised by the Berlin Chamber of Architects.
