Bernauer Straße – Living at the Wall Memorial
Pioneers of a new property
Entrance Besucherzentrum Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer
Bernauer Straße 119
In the shadow of the Berlin Wall Memorial and the rebuilt Chapel of Reconciliation, an award-winning development scheme has taken root. Incorporating what was once a strip of the wall itself, the memorial – designed by Sinai Landscape Architects – has received worldwide acclaim. This tour will introduce some of the new developments at the site: Factory Berlin is a new creative hub for the city, a house with a theatre space designed by Roedig.Schop Architekten whilst Zanderroth Architekten have built an assembly of co-op houses at the site. Meanwhile the nearby Mauerpark combines examples of both commercial development as well as the self-organised projects led by cooperatives.
