Raumlaborberlin designs interactive strategies to recover publicity. We explore the urban space, its using and usage, its peripheries and borders. These are our conditions to generate strategies of appropriation. We design temporary performative architectures, to encourage the directness of interacting with the city. Experimental operational spaces which
should become part of the processes to constitute public space.
