Holzer Kobler Architekturen

German, English


How much creativity is the architect able to exercise when the collective wishes of citizens, local authorities and investors must be taken into account? Has the role of the planner turned into that of a mediator, acting between sides that often take diametrically opposed positions? How can the appropriation of public spaces take place in a way that guarantees cultural diversity without the need for subsidies? Or, in short: how do we get investors, the public sector and active citizens around the same table, all working together to promote sustainable and innovative urban development?
