city and money

"The party in the real estate industry is over!" "No one can afford dogma and taste right now!" "When the need is greater, people will come together!"

A few forewords already spoken by the invited panel speakers as an introduction. The striking, polarizing is definitely desirable. After all, this is about the kick-off event CITY AND MONEY from the SPACE STUDIO series at POP KUDAMM.

Always sensitive, the interaction between the city and money is currently particularly explosive in view of high construction costs, rising energy prices, inflation and simultaneously rising interest rates. Who is building the city and why? Who designs the city? Who contributes to the common good? In view of the current situation, who bears which risk?

flood of topics. Diversity in consideration and argumentation. The present doesn’t make it easy for us.

The kick-off event of the “SPACE STUDIO” series deliberately addresses these questions from different perspectives: those of architects, private project developers, the public sector and municipal housing companies.

ALSO the FUTURE should be touched …

How can a climate-adapted city and affordable housing be combined in the future? How does politics have to intervene in the current situation – how can this be done uniformly at federal level, beyond small federal states? Is expropriation a solution? How do we shape the future together?
