In the context of the official art-and-culture programme accompanying the FIFA World Championship 2006, raumstar* created several diverse playing fields in the center of Berlin and the adjacent Kreuzberg district. In constructing these, largely scaffolding materials were used. An empty standard primary school was converted to serve as a temporary hostel to accommodate 280 street footballers and their coaches from 23 nations, while in the ‘Bethanien’ building at Mariannenplatz a press center was set up offering working space for up to 800 national and international media representatives. And the Festival area as a whole was turned into a genuine international meeting place where visitors were able to meet with the participants.
