    ‘Mehringplatz’ (Berlin, Germany) was a prominent public urban precinct that has now fallen victim to the city’s complex history. The result of this is an area of mismatched programs, an uneasy tension between public and private spaces, and an overall hierarchical upset. Drawing from the physical limits of the site, the new project aims to create a multi-dimensional block with integrated housing, communal ‘parkways’ and public programs all organised along a network of spiralling paths that seek to create a kind of liminal porosity between the public and private realms. The project operates on a scale between building and urbanism. [2012]
