Big Crunch

raumlaborberlin as Architects

The installation “THE BIG CRUNCH” was build as part of the „stadtfinden“ Architektursommer Darmstadt on the Georg-Büchner-Platz in Darmstadt.


“In physical cosmology, the Big Crunch is one possible scenario for the ultimate fate of the universe, in which the metric expansion of space eventually reverses and the universe recollapses, ultimately ending as a black hole singularity.”


The idea is to assemble a kind of swarm of common items which have been cast away in the Georg-Büchner-Anlage. These things condense in direction of the theatre to a sort of ball which seems to roll towards the building. It is possible to enter this ’whirlpool’.


This swarm of common items of civilization, such as furniture, refrigerators, wooden items, scrap, timber, windows etc., can be used and be acquired as a gathering place and forum for conflicts and discussions.
