P82 Symposia

Palmaille is a street in Hamburg, which is an important connection between the districts of Altona and Ottensen. The function of Palmaille has changed over time, as the street has a long history. Originally, it served as a port road and was used by merchants and sailors to transport their goods to and from ships. Today, Palmaille has mainly a traffic function and is used by cars and bicycles. However, it is also a popular place for walks. The invited guests will explore questions of the site, the city of Hamburg, public space, open spaces, participation and the role of the designer* and architect* in this context.

For this series of events we have specially designed an urban seating furniture, which was manufactured by the roof box manufacturer KAMEI in a deep-drawing process. On three dates – following a presentation about the design and production process – the outdoor space around Palmaille 82 will be used for situationist actions. The stackable chairs will be carried by the participants into the outdoor space and configured into a public talk-show arena.
