The Prae-IBA-Team

The seven interdisciplinary working members of the Prae-IBA-Team have prepared an IBA concept proposal for the Senate Department for Urban Development and the environment. From September 2010 to January 2011 the team has developed core themes and subsequently discussed them with many other actors during the IBA studio. At the end of the process the IBA Berlin 2020 has gained valuable impulses for its further design and organisation.
