K LAB is a labo­ra­tory for contem­porary commu­ni­ca­tion of urban contents (in it’s widest sense) docked at the Insti­tute of Urban and Regional Plan­ning (ISR), TU Berlin. Main tasks include the areas of KNOWLEDGE PRODUC­TION (own rese­arch projects), KARTO­GRAPHY services (geo-visua­liz­a­tion & re-presen­ta­tion), KNOWLEDGE MOBI­LIZ­A­TION (know­ledge transfer & Public Rela­tions) and KOORDI­NA­TION in teaching (projects & methods).

PRODUCTION

K LAB deve­lops inde­pen­dent rese­arch projects at national and inter­na­tional levels, working in close colla­bo­ra­tion with the ISR depart­ments as well as with other insti­tutes, orga­niz­a­tions and urban actors. The focus of its inter- and trans­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch lies on the commu­ni­ca­tion of and on the urban, its visua­liz­a­tions, repre­sen­ta­tions and media­tions. We under­stand commu­ni­ca­tion not as a unidi­rec­tional presen­ta­tion of infor­ma­tion, but rather as a multi­di­rec­tional dialogue – i.e. exchange, media­tion, and re-nego­tia­tion of our under­stan­dings of the urban and its spaces. Commu­ni­ca­tion as a two-footed prac­tice, pivo­ting on PRODUC­TION & PRESEN­TA­TION of content and media on one side (i.e. the orga­niz­a­tion and visua­liz­a­tion of infor­ma­tion); and on the other, the INTER­AC­TION of stake­hol­ders and EXCHANGE of infor­ma­tion for the purpose of construc­tive deliberation.

KARTO­GRAPHY & GEO-VISUALIZATION

A core area of K LAB is the produc­tion of maps – both for its own rese­arch acti­vi­ties and to support rese­arch and teaching tasks at the ISR, as well as for external clients. Maps and mapping play a central role in our projects, not as ends in itself but as tools to help navi­ga­ting contem­porary urban comple­xi­ties. The linking of diffe­rent quan­ti­ta­tive and quali­ta­tive data (e.g. social, economic, legal, histo­rical, design), their loca­liz­a­tion in space and time, and their presen­ta­tion and disse­mi­na­tion by means of diffe­rent tools and methods are central aspects of our work. In addi­tion to its (Geo-) Visua­liz­a­tion-Work­shop, K LAB main­tains a collec­tion of analogue and digital maps at the ISR-Archive – inclu­ding histo­rical Berlin maps and diffe­rent Geodata for use in rese­arch and teaching.

KNOWLEDGE
MOBILIZATION

K LAB contri­butes to debates on the urban through the orga­niz­a­tion of conver­sa­tions and events, as well as through the disse­mi­na­tion and publi­ca­tion of rese­arch results of the ISR using various commu­ni­ca­tion chan­nels. One of these is the Publi­ca­tions Office at K LAB which – in coope­ra­tion with the TU Berlin central library – offers two print formats: ‘Work­books’ and ‘Special Publi­ca­tions’, and one online format: ‘ISR Impulse Online’ under Open Access license (Crea­tive Commons BY 3.0 DE). On top, we publish the bianual news-pamphlet ‘ereig­nIS­Reich’ and are respon­sible for the Web- und Social-Media-Presences of the ISR.

KOORDI­NA­TION
& TEACHING

Last but not least, K LAB is the Coor­di­na­tion Unit that helps the diffe­rent ISR depart­ments orga­nize their inte­gra­tive theory-prac­tice project studios, a core element in the ISR degree programs in Urban and Regional Plan­ning and Urban Design. In addi­tion, K LAB covers a great part of the methods teaching at ISR; inclu­ding methods and tools for both rese­arch and design.
