The class Design for the Living world is taking part in the FUB - Floating University Berlin, initiated by raumlabor and in close collaboration with Katherine Ball.
 The project will take place in Berlin, from April through September.

From April to September 2018, a rainwater basin close to
Tempelhofer Feld becomes an open space for experimentation and a structure
for the exchange of different kinds of knowledge.
Participants from more than 20 international universities and experts from the
fields of art, architecture, music and dance are building the campus and diving into
topics like water filtration, coexistence with other species in an urban context,
or nationalism and identity politics.
As part of this project we are designing and maintaining the greenhouse,
which serves as the main entrance to the site. The scaffolding structure is a home to about several hundred tomato plants from 40 different natural varieties - one of them being the Rote Murmel, which is also present in the installation. They grow side by side with potatoes and other edible and beneficial plants. Combined with information on tomato plant care and biodiversity, the tomato seeds will be distributed to the visitors - while the fruits of our labor will be turned into
ketchup and fries.
