What to do with the gash the Berlin Wall left in Germany’s capital? Where has the city grown together and where do scars remain? How can architecture heal? These are questions asked at Germany's pavilion in Venice entitled Unbuilding Walls.
Twenty-eight years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the architecture office GRAFT presents work in the German Pavilion in Venice that aims to break down barriers.
She investigated the crimes of the East German secret police for a decade. Now Marianne Birthler and architecture firm Graft are set to "unbuild walls" at the German pavilion in Venice next year.
The Berlin Wall fell 28 years ago. It stood for 28 years, and 28 years before it was built, the Nazis came to power. These parallels have inspired the curators of the German Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale.
