In cooperation with OUTREACH mobile work with young people

Universität der jungen Stadtforschenden

Semester 3


The starting point of the third semester in the rainwater basin was the question about the major movements of WHERE and WHERE TO. Where do the bees gather, where does the water flow, where does the foxhole tunnel end, who moves in and out? Our rubber boot excursions began in the tunnel from Tempelhofer Feld, we built islands in the rainwater retention basin and formed their inhabitants. We built a raft and navigated the flooded concrete basin several times. With the help of ladders we explored the trees at the edge of the basin and finally marked important places.

From the observations and experiences in the workshops, we developed a story in cooperation with the participants. Our explorations were documented by James Bromley and translated into drawings and maps, which in turn were commented with drawings by the participants.

Already tested components were baking and eating together, free play, planting and caring for plants.
