Berlin – 2016-2017

Weißensee Kinderkrankenhaus

002In the beginning of XX century, child morality sharply increased, and, as a consequence, in 1909 the first municipal hospital for children was built in Prussia to tackle this problem. It was one of the best places of a kind, and it remained so for almost 100 years, until the closure on the 1st of January, 1997. Since that moment, a padlock appeared on the gate. A building without the owner was crumbled away with age, when in 2005 it became property of a Russian investor. However, the company could not perform its renovation duties, so there was no progress in the situation.

Priesterweg Park

trainThe Schöneberger Südgelände Nature Park is an excellent example of post-industrial transformation of urban space. About 60 years ago it was part of a huge switchyard. Now you can find here a beautiful forest area with a lot of attractive public spaces, street art, open air activities.

Round table at KuBIZ

0001Why do cities need urban spaces? How to involve people in a social initiative? What is sustainability from point of view of communities and volunteering? Should urban spaces be opened to everyone or only to locals? These questions were discussed at the round table, which took place on 29th of August 2017 in KuBiZ.
