Planning laboratory at 48 hours NeuköllnCase Study 2 - On-site laboratory NordNeukölln
Contributions to paradise
In the past year, 12 students of the Master program Urban Design researched and examined within the Urban Research and Design Laboratory at the TU Berlin together with the architect and artist Katharina Rohde about ideas and visions of all the players in Neukölln Karl-Marx-Straße. What do they miss in the street? What kind of suggestions do they have for their future?
In participatory processes between students and stakeholders of the street, numerous requests have been formulated and visions developed, which all suggest a contribution to a "paradise". As part of the arts and cultural festival 48 hours Neukölln (15.-17.06.2012) three interventions are tested.
