Due to the present global condition, urban environments that do not conform to late-capitalistic desires, have faced the threat of gentrification. Through methods of spatial diplomacy such as Brechtian programmatic pairings, this thesis will allow the existing Kunsthaus Tacheles, which faces a crisis of squatter/artist culture versus private commercial, to coexist in tension with new capital-producing programs forming a social and spatial dialectic.
