Berlin Transfer - Open Living Structures

residential | japanese architecture

Inspired by Oskar Hansen’s “Open Form” concept, this volume presents housing models that must be completed by the user. With the transfer of performative qualities of contemporary and traditional building structures from Japan, innovative forms of living and cohabitation are explored. Preliminary research and experimentation presented in the chapters “Performance” and “Structure” later culminates in “Projects”: eight applied proposals for open living structures that offer scenarios for use, focusing on the potential that lies in different modes of living and working together. Several Japanese built references help to define how two case studies in Berlin can be activated.
