Harris Bugg Studio's temporary garden at the Berlin Film Festival
This Harris Bugg creation will remain in place through the winter at Berlin's BUFA studios
Harris Bugg Studio has designed a temporary garden for the Berlin Film Festival at the historic BUFA studios, which will remain in place through the winter for gatherings.
Dutch arthitect MVRDV’s plan will adapt two structures in the Berliner Union Film Ateliers (BUFA), located between the Tempelhof and Neukölln districts of the city. The larger masterplan being to green the whole campus and create a biodiverse and restorative green space for Berlin.
The Harris Bugg garden which forms part of the project uses timber-shuttering boards to create raised beds of varying heights, enabling a range of different plantings from dappled woodland corners to more open, sunny, perennial planting zones.
Gabions topped with timber form low, structural walls and seats, and a timber amphitheatre seating space enables a range of uses from film showings to gigs.
