Larissa Fassler on Zentrum Kreuzberg

Kotti, 2008
Materials: grey cardboard and glue
Approximate scale: 1 footstep = 3 cm cardboard
Dimensions: 300 x 300 x 135 cm

Kotti is a model representation of the publicly accessible areas of the Zentrum Kreuzberg (ZK) housing estate and its surroundings. Starting once again with the act of walking I have measured this concrete housing estate as well as its front plaza and underground access tunnels in order to construct a third model-like structure that questions the impact of urban planning on communities, and conversely, the impact of communities on planning.
