In 2020 from one second to the other planes came to a standstill. Before Corona, this was unthinkable in our global economic structure. Capitalism, neoliberalism, global trade do not allow breaks! The virus tought us otherwise. We proposed to transform the airport BER into a Covid-19-Superhospital. Airports are symbols for a lavish lifestyle of exploitation and climate change So why don't we use this structure to fight the virus? Crisis are always also chances! We propose to use the crisis as a systematic change of architectural thinking for a sustainable social ecological change!
