CoCo stands for “CoLiving CoProduction Studio” which was conducted by Prof. Johanes Kalvelage and Larisa Tsvetkova at the DIA Master course in 2016. In this studio I have been working in a group with two more students (Vicror Cornejo, Sofia Fernandez). Together we have created a project under the title “L3” which at the end of the semester has been nominated for Lars-Lerup Prize for the best First Year Studio Project(s) and exhibited at the Campus Fest at the university premises.
Our competition 3-minutes speech describing the project may be found below:
“We would like to invite you to the L3. Leisure, Labor, Living spaces which bring people together in the heart of Berlin, 15 minutes from Museum island and 5 minutes from Warschauer Strasse, at the Lohmuhleninsel island of Kreuzberg.
The preciousness of the place makes us believe that it must belong to all the citizens and visitors, allowing people to meet and create new connections, enjoy river and sun.
