The city around Floating University Berlin appears as if it simply happened instead of being planned. Its various parts create enclosed units contrasting in their pattern, form and function, lying next to each other with almost no connection. The resulting ‚city-collage‘ will be our field of investigation and intervention in this semester with the Floating University. It functions as our temporary outpost and experimentation base camp. Analyzing the urban fragments in their individual state and in their opposition will provide us an insight into the area, the neighborhood, and finally the city as a whole. Afterwards the gained knowledge will be transferred into a specific strategy, form, structure and statement by creating an architectural intervention on a border situation in the area.
