DESIGNING THE URBAN COMMONS: BERLIN EXHIBITION
11 – 18 JUNE 2015
Mon – Fri 1pm – 8pm | Sat – Sun 1pm – 6pm
HO PROJECT SPACE, HOLZMARKTSTRAßE 66, 10179 BERLIN
This exhibition showcases the most stimulating and challenging responses to Theatrum Mundi’s 2015 ideas competition Designing the Urban Commons. A fantastic jury assembled and 2300 votes were cast resulting in 10 winners, shown here alongside the highlights of our 2014 New York competition Designing for Free Speech.
The competition this year invited anyone to re-imagine spaces in London as places for collaboration, sharing and collective ownership. In the context of increasing privatisation and with Britain’s history of common rights, London is the perfect place to test out commoning as an approach to the making of the city.
The submissions ranged from online platforms for finding and re-using spaces in the city, to schemes for collective building, playful interventions and theoretical perspectives.
The exhibition is in partnership with Make City Berlin
