Poor but Sexy: Berlin, the New Communal

What new forms for communal dwelling challenge the status quo in a growing city that until recently has been shrinking? How do you add density in a proactive way, understanding current legislation not as an obstacle but as a design tool? These collective student proposals offer provocative solutions to how we live and work in one of the most compelling emerging cities in the world: Berlin.

Poor but Sexy: Berlin, the New Communal is a Studio Report from the Spring 2016 semester at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
