In their first exhibition in Berlin, burkhalter sumi architekten focus on the relationship between sensuality and density. Their interest in the subject comes from the current building task that primarily serves the restructuring of industrial areas and expansion of existing settlements from the 1950s. The resulting density of public space brings up topical questions surrounding classical ideas of interlocking outside space with facades: How do facade constructions enable various sensual perception, what tectonic logic is inherent in constructive sections and how do individual pieces relate to each other? Burkhalter and Sumi are interested not only in the potential of this density, but also its limits. This is why they examine the relationship between public space and its usage and pursue the question of whether urban space not only absorbs public usage and thus the public, but also constitutes and represents it.
