What should have been pulled down stone by stone 23 years ago as a symbol for the overdue DDR regime is now protected as a memorial by citizens’ initiatives: A part of the ‘Grenzmauer’ known as East Side Gallery between Schilling- and Oberbaum-Bridge in Berlin is supposed to give way to luxury apartments with a view on the spree.

‘die ungeheure form / the monstrous form’ is a research project, which Moritz started with his diploma thesis. It’s the designation for a form the designer is not able to integrate into his concept of design. The title describes a form which appears to be non-designable. For the designer this form is monstrous. He attempted to fathom the barriers of designability: when is a problem a design problem? For this purpose he developed a 13-step-matrix which sorts design problems in relation to their grade of fuzziness. For every grade he designed a theoretical object. The research will continue on the project website.
