Academy of the Arts Berlin


For the exhibition “Z2000,” Stadt im Regal designed and built a full-scale model of a bungalow by architect Eduard Ludwig (Type A No. 39) in the forecourt of the Akademie der Künste in Berlin. The model functions as both a sculpture and a temporary exhibition pavilion. The original bungalow was built for an international architecture exhibition in 1957 and still stands in the nearby Hansaviertel neighborhood.

Type A Nr. 39

The design of the Type A No. 39 bungalow in the Hansaviertel neighborhood is unusual both for the rigid separation of the one-story building from its environment and for the thorough rationalization and minimal tolerances of its functional processes. A simple arrangement of living area, garage and garden within two overlapping rectangles results in a horizontal box meant to provide its inhabitants with an exceptional amount of exterior isolation and interior freedom. In the full-scale model, the bungalow is transformed through the use of low-tech materials, addressing contemporary ideas of shelter, seclusion, permeability and connection to the outside world. As a freestanding implant in public space, 1957’s model house becomes a working model once more.
