I wanted to repost this blog by Adrian Jones about the recent Collective Custom Build trip to Berlin to visit the Baugruppen.

I think that he sums up really well my own concerns about the conditions–historical, cultural, structural and material–under which these types of development were possible in Berlin. Such an understanding definitely results in challenges for thinking about how (and if) this could be replicated in Britain. 

It is definitely good for getting the conversation going though
