Berlin, Kunsthauus Tacheles, spatial dialectic, urban design
Due to the present global condition, urban environments that do not conform to
late-capitalistic desires, have faced the threat of gentrification. Through methods of
spatial diplomacy such as Brechtian programmatic pairings, this thesis will allow the
existing Kunsthaus Tacheles, which faces a crisis of squatter/artist culture versus
private commercial, to coexist in tension with new capital-producing programs
forming a social and spatial dialectic.
