case study 2

Welcome | Semester overview

This document contains a brief task description and a schedule for the semester.


Exercise 1 | Placestorming

Before anything else – you will expose yourself to the context of the river Spree!The Design Studio begins with an impulse observation of the Obere Stadtspree area, a deep brainstorming in situ, or a “placestorming.”


Exercise 2 | Research and placers and actors

You are now supposed to deepen your knowledge on the area of the Obere Stadtspree.From the overall area, you will subsequently zoom into specific locations and theirtangible potentials, problems, and requirements, as well as the correspondingstakeholders.


Exercise 3 | Expert interviews

Experts are people who have acquired unique knowledge in a particular subject, program, process, policy, etc., over a long period of time. Leading expert interviews are a way of sharing this knowledge for explicit purposes. The format of interviews can vary from formal to informal, from one-to-one interviews to discussions with several people. When the thematic guideline is clear, interviewers profit from probing more deeply for key issues.
