MAKERPLATZ is a celebration of rather serendipitous occurances of a Maker infrastructure in the Moritzplatz area. Over the last few years, various Maker organizations (Etsy Labs, IMA Design Village, Prinzessinengarten, schœner.wærs.wenns.schœner.wær, Betahaus, Open Design City & Planet Modulor) have all cropped up with a short radius around the Mortizplatz roundabout.
MORITZPLATZ has now evolved into MAKERPLATZ, a maker hub. Planet Modulor will make an official opening party the same weekend as the People in Beta festival. both want to do something involving makers so MakerLab MAKERPLATZ will occur concurrently in Betahaus, Open Design City, Planet Modulor, Etsy Labs & more
