— AN ARGUMENT RATHER THAN AN OBJECT —  WE CREATE AD-HOC INTERVENTIONS THAT CELEBRATE THE POSSIBILITIES OF APPROPRIATING SPACE. WE USE AN ARCHITECTURAL LANGUAGE THAT IS ACCESSIBLE AND CAN BE IMPLEMENTED WITHOUT A GREAT DEAL OF PLANNING AND ADMINISTRATIVE EFFORT. THIS APPROACH AIMS TO MAKE PARTICIPATION EASY AND BREAK DOWN BOUNDARIES. WE ORGANIZE WORKSHOPS, CONCERTS AND PERFORMANCES IN UNUSUAL PLACES WITH A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT ACTORS. WE USE INFLATABLE INSTALLATIONS AS A WAY OF ENGAGING A DISCUSSION ABOUT CURATORIAL PRACTICE, OPPORTUNISTIC URBANISM AND THE ROLE OF ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS AS PLACE-MAKERS AND PROVOCATEURS.

With the Cellograph, which stretches voluminously and engagingly into the hangar, we offer a discursive space for ideas that helps us to approach the area of the hangar. In the course of a two day-workshop, participants would discuss, draw and write on the translucent skin. Thus, the window becomes a canvas for temporary projections of the surrounding space.

Hangar X is an open call for practice by TORHAUS, that is collecting real and utopian space requirements for a 5.000 sqm, yet unused, hangar at former Tempelhof Airport in the center of Berlin.

Hangar X stands for the ongoing collective and cooperative development of the historic airport building Tempelhof Airport. Hangar X will be a place where actively and collectively discriminating and exploitative structures are recognized and replaced by structures and places of commoning and self-organization.

How can we take the design of our city into our own hands? Urban planning processes initiated by the citizens themselves often use their own unconventional tools to create spaces and dreams.
