Since 2018, interactive cultural and information formats as well as exciting environmental education formats have been taking place in the "Spreepark Laboratory". Until the park is completed, the "Spreepark Laboratory" with its interim uses embodies a place of learning for cultural diversity and education.
Together with a wide variety of actors from urban society, we are developing and testing events, programmes and formats on site for the Spreepark of the future that suit the park and its future visitors. From this "trial run" we learn for the later operation of the Spreepark.

In the current state of development of the Spreepark, the Mero Hall can be used as an event venue. In 2022, the artist and architect collective modulorbeat (Jan Kampshoff and Marc Günnewig) designed the spatial installation Blaue Stunde in the Mero-Halle. The result is a multifunctional space that allows for different programme uses and facilitates new formats of encounter.
Contrary to what the name suggests, it is not an enclosed hall but an open-air location. The approx. 1,800 square metre building was a popular speciality restaurant in GDR times. The building's dilapidated roof structure and outer skin were dismantled and the existing supporting structure with the eponymous MERO nodes was strengthened and supplemented with blue corrosion protection. The newly created space serves as an open venue where exhibitions, installations, performances and small art and information events can be held, with respect for the adjacent Plänterwald landscape conservation area. Events for up to 250 people can be held here from April to October. The site is equipped with electricity and toilets (also for people with limited mobility). The Spreepark itself is not yet roadworthy and unfortunately not freely accessible during events.
