FUTURE CITY LAB BERLIN WORKSHOP
The last 3 days we had a very inspiring workshop in the Aedes gallery in Berlin. Future City Lab is imagined by Thomas Auer / Transsolar and Daniel Dendra / anotherArchitect to develop and research the furture of our cities of 2050. Following the spririt ” We cant predict the future we have to design it, the future city lab becomes a network of experts, universities and students from all over the world.
Normally without a location, the future city lab settled down in the architectural gallery AEDES in Berlin converting the exhibition rooms into a workshop lab hosting several workshops with world class experts and creative students in different fields of interest.
This time the workshop was called “clothing the city” and was supported by the korean company KOLON, which is one of the biggest groups in Korea. Having the different experts from the automotive, technical textiles and fashion departments on the table the students were able to think about the future of the textile skin of our buildings and facades.
Next to the experts from Kolon, members of the imagine group Thomas Auer, Ulrich Knaack, Holger Techen and Marcel Bilow also the Korean architects from SUH architects Euhlo Suh and Kyungen Kim joined the workshop to support the students with their concepts and ideas.
