Usually in a city, intersections are the most vibrant parts of any neighborhood. They’re mostly used to build landmarks and act as gathering points where people find them an easy place to meet. The aim is to create spaces where people can meet either intentionally or by coincidence by making intersections and mixing the uses of the different programs in the building.

At first we the people intersect in a central area, which was reflected on the C shape of the building, which is designed to provide a squared area within the Tempelhof Center and the current Rathaus. By creating these intersections we could make people from different programs of the building meet, whereas the building offers various and Contradicting programs like Library, Music school, Adult center and Art center, it was important to make them interact and have a shared space to in order to feel that they are a part of a huge community and not feel abandoned in their program area. The Intersection were also made to guide the user by revealing what kind of programs the building offers by having a transparent interior layer and to also act as the main circulation of the building. The building is composed of 5 intersecting blocks, each is for a certain program and by intersecting these blocks we would save the space shared by the intersecting blocks.

UP - Cycle City

Technical University Berlin (TU) Institute Of Architecture MAT Building - Design Studio Prof. Finn Geipel (LIA) Group of 3

Up-cycled city is a machine designed specifically for an efficient and interactive process of up-cycling. Materials are delivered to the site where they are catalogued for repair or dismantling and then brought to material archives. Here workers or onsite residing artists can choose from a complete library of different materials to work on in their studios or workshops. A mix of commercial areas and galleries also allow products to be advertised and sold on-site. The site strategy is to build up a buffer to the northern area of the site through a higher and denser mass of buildings that also store most of the service spaces and public programs. The program creates a jacket of noise protection through the positioning of warehouses, delivery areas, and workshops around the more private programs of artist studios and temporary residences. The building then steps down in height towards the south allowing more light access and views to create a more desirable area to live or work. There are two points of entry on the site form the north east and the south west. The circulation grid, which is based off the time it takes an ATV to move 15 seconds at a safe speed, connects the program with a 30 meter grid consisting of three meter wide elevated streets. These streets provide a space of interaction between private and public programs as they are shared by pedestrians, workers and the automated transport vehicles that transport materials and items around the site.

13

The structural grid consists of site cast concrete construction of 4.5 meters o.c. with maximum spans up to 9 meters and 3 meters cantilevers over the elevated streets. Columns and floor slabs are dimensioned at standers 30 cm depth. The infilling non-structural elements are made up of a mix between pre-cast concrete infill panels and on-site wood construction in the areas protected from direct rain by the elevated street’s 3 meter overhang.

Considering the opposing groups occuppying todays RAW , cute appropriation proposes a solution that houses the the different parties under one roof. Supporting and enriching eachother, without getting in eachothers way. A desified translation of the original „Space Appropriator‘s“ and the later followed „Cultural Appropriator‘s“ sitespecific organisation shapes the proposal so both can co-exist. An informaed and installed Core-Wall holds all the infrastructure to run the 54 meter high building and needs to be shared by the two appropriators on the inner - and the outer rim. The „Black Mass“ gives flexibility to most specific settings like for example musicstudios, that are way different from workshops or spaces for communal gathering. According to the specific spatial need the core has a unique shape that also structures the space around it and encourages play and a new relation to the room around the users on both sides. Compleated by different niches that make for more privacy and deceleration. R.A.W. Arround that is a simple but effiant rentable space that could host offices, events or any other temporary use. Therefor the space is kept flexible and isn‘t programmed any further. The only things that is permanet is the core space, kept for the communty.

Punctual semi-transparent windows, such as the communal groundfloor and rooftop connect the different parties and give them room to exchange and relate.
