fantastic norway architects: walking berlin

‘walking berlin’ – houses socializing with the locals image courtesy fantastic norway

‘walking berlin’ by fantastic norway was an event created as part of the dmy berlin design festival 09.

the walking houses are man-sized models of our latest architectural project: a tourist destination located on the northern west coast of norway. as their project depended on the idea of travelling, they decided that it was only fair that the houses got to do some travelling too!

while exploring the streets of central berlin, the walking houses chatted with the locals, danced at alexanderplatz, travelled on the u- bahn, and even shared a curry-würst with the berliners!
