DESIGN: COLLECTIVE umschichten CREATES PLACES TO BE FOR CITY OF DANCES

The artistic architecture collective umschichten has redesigned Kampnagel exclusively for the 7th Biennial Dance Education and the Focus Dance # 6. Can architecture influence the energy of our interpersonal encounters? How do we chill, where do we talk, how do we sleep? Is a room for love & pleasure red or green? Can luxury and glamor only be experienced in velvet and marble? Or is the value of architecture measured by the handling of its material resources? The artistic architecture collective umschichten, who specializes in temporary buildings and social installations, deals with these questions.

In temporary buildings and social installations, the collective treats the demands of the biennial with care and develops new places for exchange, discussion and encounter. umschichten designs the rooms for this major dance event with a focus on pre- and upcycling of existing or already used materials and thus acts in a sustainable and future-oriented framework.
