zukunftsgeraeusche GbR (zkg), based in Berlin and Munich, is an office and interdisciplinary research platform for projects in architecture, urban and societal development, engineering, education for sustainable development (ESD) and Baukultur. The current partners of zukunftsgeraeusche are Robert K. Huber and Peter Winter.
The projects reach from experimental building and urban planning to conceptual art and performance, from the curation of cultural festivals, participatory and interactive projects to exhibitions, panel discussions and lectures. Main topics are sustainable building and cities, reuse and recycling strategies, large housing estates, modern societies and politics, Bauhaus and the heritage of Modernism.
zukunftsgeraeusche, founded in 2005 in Munich and established as zukunftsgeraeusche GbR in 2008, is since 2009 cooperating with the Technical University of Berlin (TUB) as its scientific and educational partner. In many projects within the last ten years this has been a growing and successful cooperation. Furthermore zukunftsgeraeusche intensively works and worked with notable partner institutions in a number of distinguished cooperative projects – see cooperations, supporters, clients and sponsors.
In 2019 zukunftsgeraeusche establishes the bauhaus reuse in the middle of the roundabout at the Berlin Ernst-Reuter-Platz, as a new public center and urban lab for transdisciplinary education, research and performance. In cooperation with the Berlin district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf and numerous project partners and supporters.
Most projects are combined with educational formats and research involving student seminars and workshops as well as so called educational-construction-sites for experimental building-projects.
