Exploring the architectural potential of the Berlin ‘Ostalgie’ – nostalgia for the Ost (East) – and located in Karl-Marx Allee, perhaps one of the most iconic monumental streets of the communist era, the scheme proposes new ways of living derived from the principles of communism. Inspired by a cooperative self-built housing model, which has recently gained prominence in contemporary Berlin, Kai colours his project in his own nostalgia for the lost communist ideals in contemporary China.
