Most of Berlin’s apartment blocks are all 5 stories high and have flat inter-connected roofs.So far only the renovated and more expensive buildings have roof access, and are normarly only reserved for the penthouse residents.
The newly formed organisation Dachgärten für alle aims to work with locals and landlords to develop more green spaces above the city streets - for gardening, meeting-places and star watching. Join our petition and help reclaim our roof!

For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.

We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
