The project refers to two characteristics of the neighbourhood: the listed residential courtyards in the style of the New Building of the 1920s and Heinrich Zille’s themes of housing shortage and poverty. Zille lived in five different flats in the Nöldnerkiez from 1873 to 1892. The empty grass platforms of the square are given a symbolic use, elevated and enlivened by a typical everyday element: the laundry. The proposal is inspired by Heinrich Zille’s street photographs and the use of the park-like courtyards with plenty of light and greenery.
