The U-Rangerie has been designed as a prototype for the Academy for a New Gropiusstadt initiated by the Chair for Urban Design and Urbanization of the Technical University of Berlin. The project was built as a temporary construction during the 50th anniversary of the Gropiusstadt and lasted for four weeks. The structure is situated on top of a ventilation shaft.
Thereby it connects the typology of a greenhouse with warm air blowing outof the subway (U-Bahn), in order to create a climatically isolated green island for the Gropiusstadt. Its exhaust air is used to warm up and create a communal space.
