Two concrete towers rise into the sky in an old industrial area in the former East Berlin. They were made for graphite production during DDR, and for many years after the Berlin Wall fell, they stood as a ruin. Until a studio decided to change the narrative of the place.

Host at Arka, Ane Cortzen visits Olaf Grawert and Jolene Lee, who are architects and partners at the Berlin-based studio (b+) in Germany located in the area they named San Gimignano Lichtenberg.

Address: Am Wasserwerk 22F, 10365 Berlin, Germany
