Berlin’s urban fabric presents the social, political, and economic fluctuations of the past two centuries. These fluctuations can be traced through an understanding of the ways in which the city’s inhabitants were housed. From compact tenement housing to private villas in the outskirts of the city, extensive demolition, well-built modernist developments, and poorly built pre-fabricated buildings.
This work traces these fluctuations through an understanding of the ways in which the inhabitants of the city were housed. Each drawing focuses on a housing model, extracting and laying information.
