Mäusebunker is a former animal testing laboratory in Berlin. Design Studio BrandlHuber+ aims to transform this iconic site into a place for multispecies co-habitation.
Design Studio Brandlhuber, DARCH, ETH Zürich is working on the building of Mäusebunker, a former animal testing laboratory in Berlin. Mäusebunker survived its almost inevitable demolition, thanks to the joined forces of architects, politicians and citizens. Now that the building got a second chance the question is: what is the future of Mäusebunker?
The studio will answer this question by proposing an architectural design for re-using the iconic brutalist building. Today, the current environmental and biodiversity crisis has transformed our ecosystem fundamentally. The collaboration between humans and non-humans is the only alternative for all of us – planetary – to survive: we must not only co-exist but co-operate.
