Wowhaus Architecture for communication exhibition in Berlin
Public spaces and cultural planning of buildings are very important aspects of the projects of Russian architectural studio Wowhaus.
The studio, founded in Moscow in 2007 by architects Oleg Shapiro and Dmitry Likin, is the subject of an exhibition entitled Wowhaus Architecture for communication coming up at Architektur Galerie in Berlin.
The exhibition showcases Wowhaus’s most important projects, including the 2010 Gorky Park project which began an important process of conversion and redesign of urban spaces formerly considered "empty lots" or "parking lots".
The urban spaces designed by the architects of Wowhaus favour contact among users, and are a form of "architecture for communication" facilitating active participation in urban life.
The architects also designed the exhibition installation, a collage of different projects by the studio arranged to form an amphitheatre: an architectural element which appears frequently in Wowhaus’s projects, completed for the occasion with audio and video installations illustrating examples of how the various different projects on display are actually used.
