20,000 sq ft of the historic Skalitzer Post has been re-purposed as The WYE to play a modern role in Berlin. In less than 6 months, without a single penny of public funding nor family fortune, extensive renovation (new roof, doors, electric, bathrooms, floors, walls, internet and a full paint job) was completed by the same hands who secured this space at current market value for the long term among escalating rents. Opened in 2012, The WYE hosts 100+ local and international Art & Tech innovators curated to create a uniquely diverse, professional hybrid of studios, events, public art, exhibits and workshops. No Office/Studio contributes more than the actual cost of their space. Without debt and covering overhead by its own means, The WYE is structured to redefine cultural spending by minimizing operational costs and maximizing return of every investment from and into the industries it serves.
