Artistic production and the spaces available for this within the urban fabric have always played a valuable role in urbanization processes. Art City Lab takes Berlin as an example of such developments. After the fall of the Iron Curtain, artists had great opportunities to occupy and appropriate empty lots and houses, whereas nowadays they are increasingly pushed out of the city.
Art City Lab examines and documents alternative architectural and organizational approaches to the creation of affordable studio space, by analyzing a variety of prefabricated building systems and how they can be combined, adapted, and condensed into new studio prototypes.
