Office/Play Facilities with Casco

Office/Play Facilities in collaboration with Casco. 2013


The current space—or “office”— of CASCO has been transformed in collaboration with artist Nils Norman. In place and in memory of CASCO's former grid structure by architects ifau and Jesko Fezer, which encouraged an exploration of the potential value in conflict and negotiation, the new set-up allows for a reworking of institutional behavior. It strengthens aspects of “co-habitation” and accommodates growing social needs for smaller and bigger gatherings, work space, library consulting with over 300 publications collected so far, cooking, children and resting. Nevertheless, in this environment ever-changing aesthetic demands also have to be met.
