"Das Neue Gartenfeld" – Resilience and Transformation of Urban Structures
Design and research project work based on the planned urban neighbourhood "Das Neue Gartenfeld" in Berlin-Spandau – a real-life laboratory of urban innovation and an arena for social debate.
How should a new urban neighbourhood be planned and built that is adaptable to expected climatic, demographic and infrastructural changes?
Using design-specific and scientific research methods, the students developed four projects that address the topics of rainwater management, critical infrastructure, healthy cities and public space in a forward-looking way.
CURE - Clean Urban Resilient Environment
How can we continue to use rainwater without hesitation and at the same time react resiliently to climate change events?
With this in mind, the CURE project is examining the potential of nature-based solutions (NBS) for the sustainable management of rainwater in the Neue Gartenfeld development area in Berlin-Spandau. Measures include the use of biological filters such as reeds, shells, sand and gravel, which contribute to the microclimate, biodiversity and quality of stay in cities.

Stress relief, contact point, active, cultural, educational and creative?
With the Q-iosk, new perspectives for use are developed interactively. Residents in the neighbourhood are encouraged to become active themselves in order to avoid and manage physical and social stress. A new first point of contact for neighbourhood help and community strengthening will be created as part of a community-based, participatory process.

In times of global pandemics and climate change, restrictions shape our access to public spaces. We are experiencing the loss of a central forum of democratic public space. The RaumStation is a project that playfully opens up spaces for negotiation. Through RaumStation, residents take user-friendly and resilient planning of public space into their own hands. They appropriate the public space and become city makers.
