Interview with Martin Rein-Cano: “It’s about canalising energies you find in places.”

Martin Rein-Cano is founder of a Berlin based landscape architecture practice Topotek 1. We were speaking with Martin at the 9th International Biennial of Landscape Architecture in Barcelona, September 2016. He told us about his design approach, the Superkilen project (that was just awarded with Aga Khan Award) and Topotek’s recent exhibition in their work space.
