The cultural forum C/O Berlin is a living expression of interdisciplinary exchange between architecture, design and photography, and it required a building that would facilitate and suitably represent this combination of activities.
Developed in cooperation with a team of designers and photographers, the forum’s corporate architecture was designed to integrate the building’s various uses in a single functional structure, holistically combining the elements of architecture and interior design.
The project grew with the development of the institution to encompass a range of structural solutions, from the exhibition architecture for the changing photography exhibitions, the design for all furniture in the reception, the library and the showcases, right up to the lounge in the daylight studio. In dialogue with the team from C/O Berlin, individual exhibition concepts were developed and executed for photographers like Andre Rival, James Nachtwey, Gilles Peress and Rene Burri. The quality of the corporate architecture was a crucial factor in creating the positive image the youthful cultural forum enjoys, quite literally building up its identity.
