SISYPHOS, HAUPTSTRASSE 15
Many of Berlin’s clubs feature some sort of outdoor wooden jungle gym. The garden at Sisyphos is one of the city’s most extravagant, a ramshackle micro-village containing a sauna, pizza stand, café and mini-spätkauf (cornershop) that encourages patrons to stretch a day party into a weekend sojourn. Sisyphos demanded a panoramic illustration, and I chose to highlight its more idyllic features: a raft floating on a man-made pond, two gazebos with festive bunting and flowering saplings among tall metal sculptures, all splashed with multicoloured lights at dusk.
