urban design and living spaces created in self-initiative
Berlin is thought of as the city of Urban Pioneers, a place where everything is possible and where space can be taken over and transformed. -Voids and unused spaces waiting to be occupied, old buildings engaged with new program. The self-determined design of space, building, living and working, be it in the form of builder collectives (Baugruppen), co-op’s (Genossenschaften), co-working spaces or other project forms, has produced an architectural diversity and quality in Berlin over the last fifteen years that is exemplary. In the lecture „SELFMADE CITY BERLIN“ Kristien Ring will talk about the condition in Berlin, present best-practice case studies and talk about which qualities and potentials these projects have for city planning.
