Creative Directions: A Talk with Christoph Rokitta

At Lucid we are lucky enough to work with some pretty gifted individuals. Beyond our in-house staff, our network of colleagues and friends never cease to impress with their stories and talents. We think it is important to illustrate the influence they’ve had, and continue to have on Lucid, and from time to time, will do this here on the Lucid. Blog.

This week we sit down with architect turned photographer Christoph Rokitta, to talk about his not so straightforward journey into the world of art and design, and the significant impression he made on the Lucid cowshed.

Fossile beschleunigte Gegenwart

Viele Projekte von Lucid behandeln globale Herausforderungen, denen sich die Menschheit im Angesicht der „Great Acceleration“ stellen muss, also der tiefgreifenden und stetig rasanteren Veränderung der Erde und des Lebens durch den Menschen.

Buckminster Fuller: Mapping Change

At Lucid we are always looking for ways to introduce new perspectives and ideas. When we were approached by the Foreign Ministry to develop a logo for a public debate on Germany and the future of foreign policies, we immediately turned to the work of R. Buckminster Fuller, and even more specifically his Dymaxion Map. (Side note: If you are unfamiliar with the work and life of Buckminster Fuller, you won’t be after reading this post).

Lucid Then & Now: 5 Years Later

Welcome to the third, and final chapter of “Lucid Then & Now”. We hope you have enjoyed learning about the history and transformation of our cowshed in our first two segments. “Now” we celebrate 5 Years Lucid: an incredible milestone for our company and team. In honor of our 5th anniversary, we wanted to document our accomplishments, but more importantly pay homage to the people who have made these achievements possible over the last 5 years.

Lucid Then & Now: Project Cowshed

In our last installment of “Lucid Then & Now”, we looked at the early history of the Niederbarnimstr. 10 cowshed, and its importance to Friedrichshain. This week we will speak to Lucid owner and architect Felix Matschinske, to find out what it takes to transform a cowshed from its original state, into a fully functional office space.

Lucid Then & Now: A Cowshed for the History Books

With the celebration of our 5th anniversary this January 31st, we see this as a perfect opportunity to introduce ourselves (and the cowshed Lucid calls home) in a series entitled, “Lucid Then & Now”. This three-part series will observe the transformation of our cowshed from its place in the history books, right through to the way we know and love it today.
