Location In den Ministergärten 5, 10117 Berlin

A garden. In a representative Berlin location - today. However, looking back on a capricious history that went from 19th century ministerial pomp through national socialism to the speechlessness of the death-strip. And a building ground that has remained contaminated since 1945. The concept: to make perceptible the split and disruption of the site. The jagged, expressive outline comes from this, but also the search for a relationship to the adjacent architecture. And the topographical work with the contaminated soil. But also this: a place for a break and for glittering parties.
