In addition to their exhibition at the DMY International Design Festival 2009 in Berlin the Norwegian architecture office Fantastic Norway created the event Walking Berlin. The walking houses used for this event are man-sized models of their latest architectural project: a tourist destination located on the northern west coast of Norway. As this project depends on the idea of travelling, Fantastic Norway decided that it was only fair to let the houses do some travelling, too. So the project consists of a group of narrow high-rise modules welcoming the guests of the Norwegian west coast. By walking around Berlin Fantastic Norway introduced their latest architectural work to lots of people. The systematic and flexible module-system allows the outdoor spaces, the miniature high-rise modules and the interiors to be designed in collaboration with the future inhabitants and selected artists. Interacting with the locals of Berlin, the event emphasizes the project’s social and local ambitions. While exploring the streets of central Berlin, the walking houses chatted with the locals, danced at Alexanderplatz, travelled on the U-Bahn, and even shared a Currywurst with the Berliners.
