Ort-Schafft-Material organizes workshops intending to use the available materials of the surrounding landscape. Each workshop deals with a different material, so to speak with a different facet of the city of Berlin. A further aim of Ort-Schafft-Material is the networking between participants, experts, and the public and a very interesting place, the "Haus der Statistik" (House of Statistics). This is located near Alexanderplatz and offers a pool of different resources that can be found and used.
Our Team is driven by a strong conviction of the need for sustainable living and social engagement. We have joined forces and collaborate with various designers. For years we have been working on exploring the potential of our environment. Our fields of research include the recycling of locally available materials, the extraction of colour from plants and food scraps, and textile design.
