During her residency at ZK/U, Emily will focus on the following objectives:
1. Explore gentrification and Berlin’s current housing dilemmas with affected urban communities and find innovative solutions.
2. Study six Berlin Modernism UNESCO Housing Estates (Hufeisensiedlung, Gartenstadt Falkenberg, Schillerpark-Siedlung, Wohnstadt Carl Legien, Weiße Stadt & Großsiedlung Siemensstadt) to discover whether similar designs could be used to improve contemporary housing.
3. Use large-scale sculpture and interactive installation to present her findings and make them accessible to all. To create the most impact and further develop her practice, Emily will explore new materials & techniques.
