Lower East

it’s the blog

This is the blog for lower east & lower east lab. A mix of stuff from our design & communication world (things we do, things we have done, and things we experience and get inspired from) and news from our lab – where all kind of actions and experiments can happen – that be workshops, creative meetings, urban safaris (with focus on start up, architecture, design or food), and exhibitions, events, dinners and a lot more.

Urban Safari Berlin

November 27, 2012

In the beautiful November days 22 and 23 Lower East – in cooperation with changels – were the hosts of the first Urban Safari Berlin.

We had a wonderful and intense 2day safari on bikes in the urban Berlin jungle – among many other places we visited co-working spaces as Wostel, The Wye betahaus, and had a guided tour at the beautiful & charming Hüttenpalast (some of our guests stayed there in the caravans). A warm welcome at Gestalten – space, shop and publishing house. We checked out the inspiring Dennis Hopper – The Lost Album exhibition at Martin Gropius Bau and The Supalife Forever Show at Neurotitan.

There was time to watch films on topics as The Developing World and Creativity – and of course time to discuss, talk and share interesting stuff (mostly) within the areas of start up business, creativity, good ideas and inspiration.

Yes, you got it right! We didn’t forget to eat & drink. We visited good and cosy places such as Hüttenpalast, Markthalle Neun, N.O.R (Not Only Riesling) – and the group together created the most wonderful three course dinner under guidance of Camillo’s Paladar.

On the entire journey we were intensively followed by a group of penguins.

The Urban Safari Berlin #2 is planned to take place in April 2013.
