awardAward for Raumgeschichten
For our contribution in the ideas competition „OPEN CALL 2020: Hier reisen wir!“ the team Raumgeschichten got awarded!!!
The competition asked the question how we will travel in the future and how a bus terminal for the city of Karlsruhe could look like. Our provocative answer: There’s no need for further bus terminals! Buses should truly integrated in the urban fabric to become an integral part of the city. The open call is a cooperation between the Architekturschaufenster e.V. and the K3 Kultur- und Kreativwirtschaftsbüro Wirtschaftsförderung Karlsruhe and is supported by the Architektenkammer Baden-Württemberg.
