Blue-green climate modules for the city


The BMBF-funded joint project GartenLeistungen is entering its second phase. In 2020-2021, vertical hydroponic farms in combination with local water recycling for local food production were set up in Berlin-Mitte and Berlin-Wedding in the TU Real Lab Mobile Blue-Green Infrastructure. In the second phase, further prototypes will now be implemented and consolidated.

Currently, an "Allesandersplatz" is being developed as a counter-design to Alexanderplatz with the model project Haus der Statistik since 2019: a neighbourhood oriented towards the common good based on the participation of the interested urban society. There is an open call for collective research until 12 December.

EXPERI conference


The interdisciplinary junior research group EXPERI invites stakeholders from research, administration, urban and mobility planning, civil society and business to the symposium: "Verkehrswende: Rethinking Urban Space" on 6 and 7 October 2022 in Berlin. First interim results will be presented on the topic of land allocation and redesign. Successfully implementing the traffic turnaround also means rethinking and redistributing the scarce resource of public space.

Valuing urban green space – results from real-lab research


Gardens and parks provide a variety of services for city dwellers: They cool the urban climate, purify the air, provide habitats for plants and animals and recreational spaces for the people who live and work in the city. In order to make the value of these areas for sustainable urban development more tangible, the GartenLeistungen project has recorded and evaluated these diverse effects with numerous partners from science, administration and practice. The project's conference took place on 13 May and the final publication is now available - be sure to take a look!
