2007: wiel arets studio: check point charlie

I had the oportunity to make a proposal for “check point charlie” in Berlin. It was a very special place since it was one of the points where people could go from west to east. It was a big frontier between both berlins.

There was a huge empty space waiting to be occupied with something. This something has to be special, as it was a place historicaly special.

So my proposal was to rebuild this frontier between both berlins. Friederich strasse is one of the most circulatet street in berlin. Not just for pediestrians also by car. Cutting the circulation for pedestrians and cars I will return the sentiment to the habitants and tourist that this place was usted to be a very imporant place.

People would be able to see the other side, but wouldn’t be able to cross. I created a modified topography to make more difficult the walk through the field. I also creat three walls with different holes sizes to have the moire effect while the pedestrian walk looking the other side of the wall.
