Between 2017 and 2020, in collaboration with the Oder-Spree regional government and the Weißensee School of Art and Design in Berlin, we designed the Museum Oder-Spree as the prototype of a regional museum that is constantly offering surprising insights into yesterday, today and tomorrow. Modular display fixtures for easy installation and deinstallation help keep the concept open to the future.
The Oder-Spree region is not well known for its history. Today it is a diverse and sometimes contradictory place that is rich in contrasts. Its museum tells stories about the present – including a yearbook, an annually changing exhibition, live events and a constantly growing website.
Topics revolve around energy, architecture, property, nutrition and mobility. The museum sees itself as a democratic place where the region’s future issues can be negotiated.
