Freiraum Kollektive is a multidisciplinary platform which aims to offer those who have limited access to architectural decision-making to have a say in how their built environment is shaped. We work with diverse communities and charities to develop site-specific architectural prototypes, events, workshops and exhibitions. We work to encourage knowledge sharing and women’s participation in the construction industry and we have experience running participatory workshops and seminars. While we have a core team, we are named “collectives” as we form a local team of collaborators around each project we take on.
Freiraum Kollektive was formed in Bangladesh during 2014 to initiate Capturing the City (Dhaka), a discussion that was widely attended by planners, activists, architects, educators, students and members of the public.
