NO-IMAGE // SUMMER SCHOOL 2019 – NEW TERRITORY
Third edition of future city fringe developments takes place in Berlin.
On 25 July 2019, the No-Image Summer School Series will launch its third edition at Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft (HTW) Berlin.The six day session opens with a public round-table discussion with guests from local authorities, architectural and urban practices who will present and scrutinize the new planned quartiers within three developing urban networks surrounding the city. The subsequent 5-day workshop will focus on these networks and projects sites, with international tutors leading 3 groups of participants in developing analysis and proposals for new potentials and expansion models. The program concludes with a summary exhibition on 30 July 2019 at HTW Berlin.
Berlin is growing. The projected rise in population over the coming years has caused the city’s council to call for over 190,000 new homes by 2030. The city must construct 20,000 units per year in what has been dubbed a ‘housing crisis.’ This has lead to a degree of densification in the city’s center, however many of these homes’ construction will occur in the city’s peripheries.
«New Territory» outlines an alternative conceptual framework to imagine the future of Berlin's city fringes. Berlin's ‘housing crisis’ is predicated on the need for more affordable housing and the rapid re-densification of the center by occupying many of the city’s vacant inner-city lots. But more people coming into the city means land is scarcer, more expensive, and brings new stresses on Berlin’s urban infrastructure. The quality of life in Berlin, and the quantity of those enjoying it, will not be solved simply with the construction of more homes.
How can the various interactions of space, development and infrastructure be geared towards an urban expansion model that enhances both the city of today and the city of tomorrow? «New Territory» shifts the focus of the housing crisis to the expansive potential of Berlin’s periphery. New peri-urban quartiers in the fringes become part of a strategic territorial project, areas linked and defined, and fueled by an ambition for new urban infrastructure and territorial networks within greater Berlin.
