What the Trafohaus (Transformer Station) on Lutherplatz once did is now done by a small box next to it: transforming electricity. The white building lies between districts; it has been used as a kiosk, a telephone booth, and a post office. Since the early 1990s, it has also hosted exhibitions.

For documenta fifteen the worldwide network Arts Collaboratory is also using the Trafohaus—as a newsroom, radio station, rooftop garden, and site of a theater performance.
