Site has a layered history of discontinuity and contradictions, and at the end, it has been abandoned leaving a void to the present city of Kaliningrad.
Our design method is built around notions of Reclaim - Recognize – Resurrect.
We reclaim the site by giving it back to the city (urban reclamation)
We recognize the rich history of the site (archaeological exploration
In turn, we resurrect the site as a Social, Ideological, Temporal Entity (SITE).
A Cultural Public Place replaces presently abandoned Urban Void, which was historically a Private Castle
