CollColl is a design collective, based in Berlin and Munich. Together they work between architecture, scenography and art, and create prototypes and experiments between urban design, sculpture and performance on participative construction sites.
Employing circular materials, they use process- oriented, improvisational and explorative methods to activate public space. Rather than simply designing and executing, their projects take building as an end in itself, as an art form, as a performance. Through the participation of invited guests and passersby, they open these design processes up to collaborative thinking, feedback dynamics and contextual materials. This pointed engagement of the social aspect of design, aims to establish co-responsibility between the project, its site and its community.
They have been working together since 2020, when they contributed to the IBA International Building Exhibition in Thuringia (DE) with a collectively created structure out of rammed earth. Since then they have developed a number of proposals and have initiated building projects within the Fahrrender Raum art festival in Munich (DE), with the children’s art museum Kinder Kunst Labor in St. Poelten (AT), and with the State Theatre of Stuttgart (DE).
