We are a team of architects, designers, engineers, educators and students from the University of California, Berkeley and the University of the Arts (UdK) in Berlin passionate about the role of the built environment in solving the climate crisis.

Katharina (Dipl. Ing. Arch. Univ., ARB) is an architect with international experience in a wide range of projects in many different climates and scales: from the smallest micro compact homes in the alps designed with Prof. Richard Horden and exhibited at the MoMA in New York, to one of the largest airports in the world (Kuwait International Airport with Foster+Partners) in the desert sand of Kuwait. Currently an architect at Sauerbruch Hutton in Berlin, Katharina has recently led the renovation of a large listed complex of Buildings in the heart of Berlin.

The installation has been conceptualized and realized by Prof. Giovanni Betti and Katharina Fleck with the support of the students of the chair of Structural design (Konstruktives Enwerfen und Tragwerksplanung KET) led by Prof. Christoph Gengnagel.
