Welcome to the DBXchange Platform
DesignBuild takes students from their studio desks into the physical world of human interactions and construction.
On this platform you can exchange information about DesignBuild activities, promote your projects, organisation and your own expertise, search and offer literature, initiate collaboration, look for support, find answers to questions about pedagogy, logistics, liabilities, funding and construction.
We welcome teachers in academic and non-academic education, students, researchers, planners, clients and users, politicians, entrepreneurs, donors, craftsmen and sympathisers to get involved!

Über den Tellerrand e.V. and CoCoon announce the opening of the KITCHEN-HUB, a place of mutual exchange between refugees and locals.
The KITCHEN-HUB is a DesignBuild project and was realized in close collaboration with Habitat Unit building on the experiences and outcomes of the Design Studio Refugees in the City at the TU Berlin.
KITCHEN-HUB DesignBuild Summer School
During the Refugees in the City Summer School we will design and build the KITCHEN-HUB - a place of encounters between refugees and locals in Berlin Schöneberg. We will work together with refugees, craftsmen and especially the future operator of the place: überdentellerrand. Experts and guests from various fields, such as refugee initiatives, research, cooking, craftmenship and DesignBuilders will give their valuable input.
Main functions of the KITCHEN-HUB include a multifunctional room where überdentellerrand events, such as cooking classes, workshops, community meetings, etc. can take place as well as a functional kitchen, offices, storage and a workshop. The designs will be developed during the first phase of the summer school and will be based on the outcomes of the current Refugees in the City Design Studio at Habitat Unit.
