The Berlin 2050 studio will concentrate on a clipping of the city right outside the eastern edge of the inner city marking the beginning outskirts along the River Spree traditionally the industrial corridor of the city.
Particularly this sector has a fragmented and often abruptly changed built pattern due to its vicinity to the former border.
Since 1990, the river Spree became a dynamic and most distinctive development area of the united Berlin.
The studio will investigate urban strategies and concrete typologies:
- To improve the connectivity of the neighborhood within the larger city context increase the density of the area
- To develop mixed-use typologies and neighborhoods to increase the density of the neighborhood by 100 % and to provide a share to accommodate new population in the rapidly growing city
- To apply contemporary concepts of mobility to implement and absorb the new proposals into the city map by transportation and public space concepts
