Living with a Vision – Large Housing Estates as an Opportunity


Living with a Vision – Large Housing Estates as an Opportunity

Berlin is getting ready for the third International Building Exhibition. The IBA Berlin 2020 wishes to design the diverse city of the 21st century in a creative and participative process. To this end, Berlin’s specific talents and potential should be experimentally revaluated.

The second event of a series focusing on IBA Berlin‘s major topics – Economy, Knowledge, Living – turns its attention to large housing estates. Housing estates are generally viewed as a problem across Europe.

Nonetheless, they constitute a great potential for cities. The event on 13 February 2012 will discuss how these rigid, often monofunctional large-scale structures can be transformed into lively, mixed locations. How can new perspectives be created, using urban development and architectural means, artistic interventions and activation and participation strategies? What role do large-scale urban structures play in economic, environmentally friendly and socially sustainable urban redevelopment? Discussions with international guests are designed to provide inspiring insights and enrich the Berlin talks.
