Maria Wolff

Maria works full-time in a large architectural office, where she deals with the renovation of public buildings. Even though her work often involves very concrete planning and detailed implementation, she likes to deal with the context of buildings – the mental projection into the future are of special interest to her. The work at Ticket B allows her to engage with Berlin as a city and to delve into topics that bring a supposedly rigid urban structure to life. She is particularly fascinated by the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in the City West: a church nestled between a railway station, the zoo and consumerist architecture. In this place of ruins and a new modern building, a vast amount of history is at work. Maria’s speciality is South Africa – she lived and worked in the African country for 12 years and started a family there. Here in Berlin, she lives in the north of Schöneberg and likes to escape to one of the lakes in the surrounding area – terribly early, of course, before Berlin arrives.
