The Soteria is a new psychiatric treatment center at the University Clinic of Berlin aimed at younger patients with a schizophrenic disorder. The station, with space for 12 patients, was developed as an interdisciplinary project jointly by the psychiatrist Dr. Martin Voss and the architect Jason Danziger. The lecture of Jason Danziger will introduces some of these mechanisms while also sharing project inspirations.

The most important aspect in the spatial design of the Soteria was to "de- institutionalize" the ward. Beheath a cosy furnishing the selection and distribution of colors within the Soteria is a loom large. This is governed by a comprehensive color plan (Farbplan), in which the interplay of color and light is emphasized in order to contribute to the creation of a phenomenally rich environment while simultaneously providing simple orientation and comfort to patients and staff alike.
