Can you imagine the city of Berlin without office buildings? Everybody working remotely, only having their weekly or monthly meetings at a cafe or somewhere else? This would bring the city lots of more spaces for living and more spaces for culture and creativity. Not so bad in the end, huh?
Thinking about the future, not as an obstacle but rather a variety of opportunities is the task of the upcoming speculative laboratory “The Workhouse” by design brand USM in collaboration with UNstudio.
For a period of six weeks, the innovative furniture company will create a post-work utopia in which work and life merge together. For the opening weekend on June 2nd, there will be a small conference starting the laboratory. If you want to go, it’s your lucky day since we are raffling off 2×2 tickets. Find out how below.
A location with a special twist
The location of the “Workhouse” is an ancient Wehrmühle just outside Berlin who got a contemporary touch with the restructuring of Zanderroth Architekten Berlin. The clash between beautiful antique ornaments on one side of the building and clear white shapes on the other side gives this place its unique charm.
What will happen?
On June 2nd 2018the Workhouse will host a whole day of workshops and panels with famous speakers and futurologist as Robert Rowland Smith, the Co-Founder of School of Life or Rohit Talwar the CEO of Fast Future Research.
