In tribute to the ground floor
Studio Talk at bfstudio-architekten
bfstudio Büro Lobeckstr.30-35 D 10969 Berlin
Berlin has a choice: sell ground-floor space to the highest bidder – or – see that it goes to the bidder with the best idea. Opting for the latter not only creates more affordable space, but fertile ground for experimentation across a huge area. How might a new approach reconcile different types of urban space? Turning a gallery into a “project room,” a retail space into a “micro Storefront,” or a restaurant into a “food bazaar” gives good reason for people to leave the zone of the pavement: the ground floor becomes the perfect mediator between public and private space. bfstudio-architekten invite you to a Studio Talk and BBQ in celebration of the humble ground floor.
