Discourse: WerkBundStadt Berlin, 30 March 2017, 7 pm, Cologne
Since its foundation on October 6, 1907, the Deutsche Werkbund has dealt with central issues of housing construction. Around 90 years later, the Werkbund Berlin is once again taking part in the city-planning discourse. On Berlin's Spreebord, a 2.8-hectare fuel tank is to be rebuilt under the direction of the Werkbund in Berlin, and an entire district in Charlottenburg-Nord will be re-connected to the city. Expectations on the structure of the development and use are high on the part of all parties involved. The projects of 33 selected architects are now available for the controversial project. The question is, among other things, which impulses can still provide the leitmotifs of the Werkbund for today's building in the metropolis of Berlin. The three participating architects Christoph Ingenhoven, Prof. Dr. Paul Kahlfeldt and Prof. Arno Brandlhuber will present the project in Cologne and discuss it with each other.
Admission is free.
