Public tour: Wild Wedding
A creative scene has been brewing for years in the formerly strictly proletarian working class district, mostly housed in converted industrial and transportation buildings. Now new architectural paths are also being taken in residential and commercial construction, following processes of gentrification that are not commonplace. Raw concrete and modular timber construction enable to build quickly and cost-effectively beyond conventional construction techniques.
The Lobe-Haus makes imaginative use of the possibilities offered by the building regulations and, with terraces open to the public, creates an unmistakable place in “Red Wedding”. More and more building co-ops are bringing the district to life.
