IBA Studio

The IBA Studio was launched in early 2011, creating a public space for work and discussion. IBA used it for its active search for partners. The Studio had a fitting location, at the Alte Zollgarage at the Tempelhof airport building. The great interest in a third IBA in Berlin manifested itself quickly: several thousand people attended the around 20 events at the Studio between January and April 2011. The broad participation helped to specify and flesh out the concept of the IBA Berlin 2020 further.

IBA Studio: Talks

A variety of playful and experimental formats allowed for a constructive approach to the IBA Berlin 2020. At eight IBA closed-door meetings, specific issues and topics of the IBA concept were brought into sharper focus within a small circle of specialists and experts. Throughout a total of seven IBA Talks and discussions, experts, practitioners, citizens and activists came together to talk. The national IBA Forum “IBA meets IBA” was also hosted at the IBA Studio.
