Guerilla Architects is a multi-disciplinary artist collective based in Berlin. By focusing their work on spatial interventions and socio-critical art projects, they approach urban development by being »guerilla«. This means that great value is not necessarily only created by building on a grand scale. On the contrary, by working with existing structures, it often only requires minimally invasive interventions in order to give new meaning to former invisible spaces. Guerilla Architects draw on the untapped potential of political, legal und spatial grey zones as well as the free resources which are available due to the abundance and overproduction of urban society.
