Transstruktura is an open group of architects who form a suitable working community for every project, giving us very flexibility and a broad spectrum of competences to chose from. As an interface between architecture, city planning and new media, we have a complex and interdisciplinary approach to design. Transstruktura‘s core team is formed by three architects: Nataliya Sukhova, Andreas Heim and Viktor Hoffmann.

Type of project
  • New areas of operation

Transstruktura created a series of temporary urban interventions using and upcycling old glass containers as modules for spatial sculptures in the public spaces. These objects serve as temporary accommodation, urban retreat, playground and pop-up outdoor furniture. As they are breaking with expectations and common usage, they are opening up new perspectives and experiences in the urban landscape. An archetypal language is used to transform the functional object into an architectural space with sacral and monumental qualities.

Around 2000 old glass containers per year were sorted out by the recycling company in Berlin. Thanks to the stability of glass fiber, most of them are still robust enough for further use. The objects are easily transported an rebuildin the new location.

A classic glass container is a pure functional object, but its unique basic shape has an undeniable influence on the cityscape.

The public is invited to reinvent “The Dome” functionally for each new site.



7 stacked and intersected containers form a space with a central cupola and several side

Protected from the sun, rain, wind and glare, the visitors feel secure and are confronted with their surroundings by their respective visual and listening directions.
