PLANE—SITE was invited to curate and produce a panel entitled "Housing as a Matter of Fact" as part of the World Architecture Festival in Berlin in November 2016. We visited four innovative projects to interview the residents and observe their lived experience at home within experimental architecture. By using video as a platform, we hoped to afford them the opportunity to relate their experiences, unscripted, in their own words, within the context of their own radical homes.
Spreefeld, a cooperative living community located directly on the Spree in Berlin (Germany), offers an alternative to the traditional apartment and champions the value of shared space. The building is composed of shared ‘cluster apartments,’ which can house up to 21 people and ‘option rooms,’ open to the entire building with an open-ended purpose as to suit the needs of the residents as the community grows and changes over time.
