Berlin Marienpark Lab

bauhaus earth

Our Berlin Marienpark Lab: a vibrant space for innovation and collaboration, where material and technical research meets experimental design and building science. As a space for critical public discussion and co-creation, however, we are not just about bridging research and practice – we aim to become the epicentre of the regenerative building movement.

Located in the south of Berlin, the 600 m2 workshop and exhibition space provides the infrastructure to support experimentation and the production of prototypes and building elements using bio-based materials and waste streams. We are on a mission to move away from ecologically extractive products and systems towards a regenerative building culture. The Lab also provides office and meeting space.

Our collaborative spirit catalyzes critical R&I partnerships with frontrunners in architecture, art, engineering, climate science, regional land use policy, and forest ecology. We host innovators through fellowships and training programmes, public lectures, exhibitions, and symposia, to build a trans-regional network of systems thinkers and makers.

In addition, the Lab aims to showcase cutting-edge research and innovation from around the world to build the necessary support within policy and civil society. We believe this will ensure the breakthrough and scaling of new models of climate-forward, ecologically integrated construction.
