Kotti, built object, 2008
Materials: grey cardboard and glue
Approximate scale: 1 footstep = 3 cm cardboard
Dimensions: 3m x 3m x 1.35 m

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.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.

Rather than constructing a model based on the positive masses of the buildings, I have measured and built the negative volumes ľ in the tunnels and between fašades, following the surfaces of sidewalks and plazas, and leaving the rest as empty space. By creating an inversion of the classic planning model I seek to challenge the omnipresence of the master plan and to make visible the in-between, uncertain and transient spaces that make up public space.
