The city as a space for negotiation between people and wild animals.

Places that narrate about a future normality

With our work, we envision a city of the future where we learned to accept the wild animals. We are showing models that challenge the evolving paradigm shift on the role of nature in urban environments.

What can we do for the animals–what can they do for us

We influence the general perception of wildlife in Berlin through designed experiences. Our proposed provisions are for once provoking and aimed to stimulating debates about purpose of nature in cities. Yet, they also imply–speculative–solutions.

Places for discourse

We like to describe our installations as places for discourse. We invite the citizens of Berlin to engage with the subject matter. Our project defines the city as a space for negotiation between people and wild animals.
