Berlin, Germany - 38,000sq.m. Eerotic Entertainment Center
Adding some spice to the usual recipe
In a challenged economy it's important to look to the largest grossing domestic product for a solution. In this case, the solution wasn't more tourism - it was a new kind kind of tourism.
Tapping into Berlin's relatively new legal sex worker industry to generate tax revenue , the site strategy seeks voids along the historic path of the Berlin Wall, WW2 voids, or both, and in an area lacking an average proportion of tourist programs.
The new building and space typologies contrast the abundant platenbau typology to serve as the new symbol of erotic entertainment centers and interfaces with its context by winding program around 'erotic grounds' to create varying degrees of transparency when looking into and out from Erotische Mitte.
