ACTIVE RECONSTRUCTION: REFERENCING THE YEAR 1716
Design proposal for the competition on the open space design around Humboldtforum

SPECIFIC INDETERMINACY
Design by Urban Catalyst for the competition "Temporary Open Space Design in the Palace Area. Berlin Mitte District", September 2006. Awarded 2nd prize

20.000qm X 5 Years
Concept for the Use of the Remaining Basement of the Palace of the Republic According to current plans the basement will be filled in with 200.000 tons of sand in order to stabilize the basement and prevent upward movement once the building has been demolished. Technically only one tenths of this mass is actually required. The proposal argues that instead of spending 2 million Euros on an unnecessary action, the money could used to fund cultural programs on the site for at least five years.
