“WOWHAUS” at Architektur Galerie Berlin
In January 2015, Architektur Galerie Berlin presents the work of the Moscow-based office WOWHAUS. The exhibition introduces the oeuvre of Oleg Shapiro and Dmitry Likin, founders of WOWHAUS in 2007, as an architecture for communication: The projects of Shapiro and Likin focus on architecture’s capacity to not only enable, but to actually trigger social interaction. Obviously, the architects (responsible for the building of the Strelka Institute and the transformation of the famous Gorky Park) adhere to the achievements of the Moscow avantgarde of the 1920s: WOWHAUS put a new spin on the conception of architecture as a “social condenser”.
Michael Schindhelm, as a co-founder of Strelka Institute Moscow, will present the work of WOWHAUS at the vernissage, which takes place at Architektur Galerie Berlin on January 15th, 7.00 pm.
