In the beginning of 2007 the consortium ifau from Berlin, Jesko Fezer and Künstlerhaus started to work over the interior concept of the institution. The opening of the conversed spaces will be accompanied by a discussion between the architects from Berlin and social geographer Roland Lippuner on the topic of relations between architecture and everyday life.
The plan made by Jesko Fezer and ifau consists of minimalistic interventions that are derived from the functional demands. Without reinventing the institution’s identity, the architectonical concept aims to present a programmatic diversity and its correlation. The attention was put on spaces of social interaction. Offices and workshops as working spaces have been put in relation, the corridor has been expanded to a library and an open zone for conferences. In connection with the exterior representation, the information materials have been reorganized. The bar was integrated into an existing room-devider, using the upper part as flap counter.
