undjurekbrüggen is an architectural practice that considers architecture as an immanent part of a common Earth shared with all people, animals, plants and things. Instead of placing individual, human objects in a natural world in crisis, undjurekbrüggen intends to connect the world you live in and the world you live from in one space.

With the aim of not only protecting the Earth, but also caring for it and actively shaping it in a positive way, undjurekbrüggen initiates ecological projects in cooperation with other actors.

These projects can have different formats (building, furniture, text, film, campaign, neighbourhood or landscape), but always deal with the existing in terms of building, ecology, economy, politics, climate and comfort.  




_undjurekbrüggen is co-founding member of the architecture collective OFEA Office for Ecological Architecture

The concept for a courtyard in Berlin combines human design and the supposed wilderness of nature in flowing transitions. It combines apparent opposites of order and disorder, planning and coincidence to a green retreat for humans, animals and plants in the centre of the city. The irregularity creates different living areas even in a small space and thus promotes biodiversity.

On the floor of the passage, the typical Berlin paving is continued - with re-used large Charlottenburg granite slabs. In the courtyard, the concrete paving stones will be cleaned and rearranged. The small granite paving is retained as guiding lines for the new rows of slabs. Towards the green space the pavement dissolves irregularly.

There are specific and random rules for the position of the paving stones. The beginning of each row lies on the connecting line between the passage and the entrance. Each row has a given length in both directions. The distance between the stones increases as the length of the row increases. There are half stones and whole stones. Sometimes a stone is missing, sometimes no stone is missing. With these rules, a computer programme generated 1 000 variants. One of them was selected.

The plants are selected for the shady location below the tree. The mixed plantings are divided into 4 groups according to their height of growth. These four planting zones are arranged linearly along the path, so that the height of the plants increases with increasing distance from the path. The plantings end in a mixed hedge along the fence and the terrace. The colours of the flowers and plants alternate from dense green with predominantly white flowers to different shades of red in autumn.
