Le Theatre des Negociations

A political, diplomatic, scientific, pedagogical and artistic experiment took place in May 2015 at Nanterre-Amandiers.

Théâtre des Négociations was conceived by SPEAP (Programme d’expérimentation en art politique de Sciences Po), around Bruno Latour, the make it work-team at SciencePo and implemented by Philippe Quesne / Nanterre-Amandiers and raumlaborberlin:

200 students from all over the world took part in a simulation of the international conference of parties on climate change, the COP21 in front of an audience for 5 days. The real COP21 will take place in Paris, in December 2015. It will be a major deadline in our race against the increasingly rapid changes that our planet is now facing.

Allemänna Badet / Bathing Culture



We are very happy to announce that the sauna building, part of our Bathing Culture project in the former industrial harbor of Gothenburg, has won the SAVG Architecture Award 2015 (Swedish Association of Architects Gothenburg Region).


statement of the jury: The architects of Sweden Västra Götalands architecture prize 2015 has been assigned to the Sauna in Frihamnen (Bathing Culture Göteborg)
Like a stranded container it stands there. A slight unshaped figure with a corrugated surface, in the old basin of Frihamnen. The sauna gives vitality, contributes to new life and a new future. With its zest for life and will to create, the sauna becomes more than just a creative haven it also becomes a vitamin injection for the whole town.


The sauna building is also one of 4 nominees for the Kasper Salin-priset 2015 , the National Swedish Architecture Award.



“The City of Gothenburg will present the Jubilee Park with a proposed development timeframe of seven years, 2014-2021. If used effectively, the timespan between planning and implementation could contribute to creating a new common
space; a platform in the city that is both physical and relational.”

In this framework, raumlaborberlin is working on the realization of a public bath. As a first step the sauna tower and the changing rooms were completed in 2014.

Lotville – Landscape of Desire


raumlaborberlin has been invited to develop the “10éme Parcours d´art contemporain en vallée du Lot” north of Toulouse in July 2015. The project “Lotville” will become the underlying narrative for the parcours – it is raumlabors attempt to reintroduce urban visioning into the world of arts and architecture. Lotville is a contemporary perspective on Europes countryside in relation to urbanity. Lotville will be an exhibition and a set of interventions in the landscape and villages along the river Lot.



Real Utopias

Our real utopias are multi layered cultural projects, which start from a strong and seemingly utopian idea for a difficult site. They combine a broad range of often unconventional planning strategies and initiate active alliances between local actors and external experts.


Keep in Touch




OUT NOW: ART CITY LAB – New Spaces for Art!

Artistic production and the spaces available for this within the urban fabric have always played a valuable role in urbanization processes. Art City Lab takes Berlin as an example of such developments.



Fountain house

Reexamining the fountain: In contemporary urban as well as cultural discussions we see a renaissance of the idea of common space, in german either translated as „Allmende“ or „Gemeinschaft“ depending on a relationship towards (city) space or social structures.



RUSH HOUR REST STOP: Acknowledging everyday practices

Rush Hour Rest Stop is shelter built out of gutted shells of old cars. We were invited to Durban with no specific task or space given.



The City as a Sphere for Action

The Symposium at the end of the Osthang Project Summer School placed the recently completed Osthang campus into a larger context.
