Case Study 1 - Obere Stadtspree

With presentations and discussions on the areas of the Obere Stadtspree in Berlin, the newly established "Urban Research and Design Laboratory" started on Thursday, 10/28/2010 in its debut semester. The day of lectures was embedded in a workshop week, that brought together numerous students from the planning disciplines (architecture, urban design, urban management, urban and regional planning) and stakeholders as well as teachers and scholars. This has been the opening session to a series of collaborative events this semester.
