Densification? Managing urban space

IBA-Werkstattgespräche (Diskussionsrunde)

Event on 11 September 2012

The International Building Exhibition IBA Berlin 2020 supports a land-sensitive urban development, the careful management of urban space. What does this mean for the push for housing that Berlin has committed itself to? Is high building density a guarantee for sustainability and urbanity, or an indicator of social woes and low quality of life in times of climate change?

The event on 11 September 2012 at the Alte Zollgarage (former Tempelhof airport) should raise quantitative and qualitative aspects of densification as topics for discussion, for which exemplary solutions can be worked out as part of the IBA Berlin 2020 process.
