I totally love this!
Throughout 2009, a number of events have been planned to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall.
Check out the Info-Trepp, brain child of Katharina Bardens. The Info-Trepp is a mobile info-pavilion incorporating a traveling exhibition, viewing platform and café is designed to become the meeting point for guided tours of sites throughout the city best showing the development of Berlin since the fall of the wall, i.e. Potsdamer Platz, Hauptbahnhof, etc.
The pavilion can be entered from three sides enabling it to adjust to the specific urban situation and the individual elements of the walls can be taken apart and loaded onto a trailer for easy transport.
Imagine this concept as a Texas Ice House with the stairs doing double duty as bleachers to simply relax and enjoy the view or perhaps as a riser to check out a live band, performance or art installation... Hmmmm....
