SPACE STUDIO – CITY AND MONEY

"THE REAL ESTATE PARTY IS OVER!" "NO ONE CAN AFFORD DOGMA AND GOOD TASTE RIGHT NOW!" "WHEN THE NEED IS GREATER, PEOPLE WILL COME TOGETHER!"

As an Introduction, we present a few welcoming words from our panel speakers. The striking, polarizing situation is most welcome. After all, we are talking about the kick-off event CITY AND MONEY hosted by the SPACE STUDIO series at POP KUDAMM.

Perpetually complex, the interplay between city and money is particularly explosive right now in view of high construction costs, rising energy prices, inflation and rising interest rates. Who builds the city and why? Who shapes the city? Who contributes to the common good and in what way? Who bears what risk in view of the current situation?

A flood of topics. Diversity characterized by consideration and argumentation. The present gives us no easy way out.

THE OPENING EVENT OF THE ‘SPACE STUDIO’ SERIES DELIBERATELY ADDRESSES THESE ISSUES FROM VARIED PERSPECTIVES. THOSE OF ARCHITECTS, PRIVATE PROJECT DEVELOPERS, PUBLIC AUTHORITIES AND MUNICIPAL HOUSING INSTITUTIONS.

The FUTURE will ALSO be probed …

How can a climate-adapted city and affordable housing be combined in the future? How must politics intervene to steer the current situation?  And how can this be achieved uniformly at the federal level, beyond small-scale federalism? Is expropriation the solution? How do we shape the future together?
