Our studio is located at Crellestrasse 21, 10827 Berlin, Germany. The IES program has two floors, one with a few smaller classrooms and one with a large open space devoted to the studio workspace. Both floors have small kitchen areas, complete with coffee maker, microwave, and fridge. There is a small table to eat at, and a small couch near the fridge area as well. We have access to a large printer, and a few reference books for classes. There are also a couple guides to Berlin, which are actually really helpful. I just recently used one called Second Hand Berlin, which is a guide to all the second hand stores in the city!
In the studio space, we each get a individual table and sit in clustered groups depending on who our studio teacher is. Studio class happens usually once a week, and we have slightly longer desk crits. The teachers are usually there for the entire day, which is nice because we can sometimes talk to them twice if we have follow up questions. This semester we have also had several guest sustainability critiques come in to talk to us about our individual projects, and its sustainable aspects. Sustainability is a large focus of the semester, we even separate our trash!
