The Urban Design Studio investigates the emerging housing shortage in Berlin triggered by demographic change and lack of appropriate policies. The studio included research on institutions and key actors, housing prototypes, available sites for development and their relation with the city’s spatial, functional and social fabric.
The goal of the studio was, in the first place, to better understand the different actors and relevant processes, and in the second place, to develop creative design concepts, using different tools and methods, that replace current provision-oriented approaches to housing with new forms of co-production and actor-driven planning.
The final review of the students’ projects will be completed by an expert discussion on cooperative housing in the afternoon.
