Lebanese artist and director Rabih Mroue built a lean, 145-foot-long shelter that stretches out throughout Tempelhof’s abandoned fields.

Finally, the Festivalzentrum is made from recycled steel beams and repurposed silos. It features a bar on one side and a cocoon-like space for eating and thinking about the future – because, like Tempelhof Airport, it is still open for discussion and it can take any shape we want.
