The architectural collective raumlaborberlin was founded in 1999 as a syndicate of artists and architects who work with artistic installations on a project-related, interdisciplinary basis to pursue common goals in architecture, urban development, landscape design and public space. raumlaborberlin works in the area of urban interventions and transforms urban spaces. Their vision is to shift programmatic narratives into empty urban spaces, create new atmospheres and a sense of new potentials and open spaces. Among their best-known works are “Küchenmonument” (Venice Biennale 2006 and others) and “Der Berg” (2004) in the Palast der Republik. In addition to their temporary architectures, they have also worked on projects for Kunstraum München, Kunstverein Heidelberg, the ZKM Karlsruhe and Kampnagel in Hamburg as well as the architecture Biennale in Venice.
One of their last urban space projects, “Hotel Shabby Shabby” was invited to Theater der Welt (2015), as well as to the Münchner Kammerspiele in the summer of 2016. raumlaborberlin includes Andrea Hofmann, Axel Timm, Benjamin Foerster-Baldenius, Christof Mayer, Florian Stirnemann, Francesco Apuzzo, Frauke Gerstenberg, Jan Liesegang und Markus Bader.
