‘art cloud’ exhibition design by graft architects image courtesy graft architects

in scholssplatz, berlin, germany the royal palace was destroyed in 1962 and in its place,the socialist government of eastern germany built the palace of the republic which was in turn demolished in 2005.

since then the city of berlin have yet to reach a concensus on what to build in its place. graft architects proposed an art haven in the form of a kunsthall for the young and vital international art scene in berlin. the design is envisioned as an art cloud a temporary light structure of exhibition space, seemingly floating and resting for a moment above the topography of soft mounds.
