In addition to economic and demographic aspects, social innovation is playing an increasingly important role in the future development of residential districts. The demand from citizens to participate in the process is also having significant influence upon the direction of urban planning. But where can space be found to develop a radical, new and sustainable model city that respects both market realities and different lifestyles? What, for example, are the negative consequences of initiatives like Tempelhofer Feld 100%? Berlin is a city that’s open to innovation, combining sustainable urban development with active technology transfer: ergo, the perfect conditions for experimental, interdisciplinary city-making. Nevertheless, such debates need to turn talk into action. This workshop will sketch out a framework for the model development of an inner-city area in Berlin that respects both social and demographic changes as well as the need for sustainable approaches.
