The installation “Ohne einen Glaspalast” (Without a Glass Palace) is an architectural tableau based on the former Palast der Republik.

The title, “Ohne einen Glaspalast”, is a fragment of a poem by Paul Scheerbart from his book “Glasarchitektur”.
The poem was inscribed on the interior of Bruno Taut’s Glass Pavillion, created as a temporary structure for the Cologne Deutscher Werkbund Exhibition in 1914. Taut and Scheerbart’s utopian vision from exactly 100 years ago is taken as a starting point for the conceptualization of glass architecture in O’Brien’s ongoing research
