The potential of the city
The current exhibition "urbainable - stadthaltig. Positions on the European City for the 21st Century" at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin explores the role of the European city in the face of today's climatic, technological and social challenges and shows its potential for sustainable development. Tim Rieniets, Matthias Sauerbruch and Jörn Walter have selected projects, visions and initiatives that provide an insight into European architecture and urban planning at the beginning of the 1920s of the new century.
International approaches from the fields of architecture, engineering, landscape architecture and urban planning shows how a sustainable change in the model of the city can be achieved beyond the simple elimination of deficits. An urban panorama by the Berlin photographer Erik-Jan Ouwerkerk with accompanying information from the Institute of Urban Development and Planning of the Leibniz University of Hannover provides the thematic introduction. At the same time, 34 members of the Architecture Section of the Academy of the Arts and their guests, including photographer Patricia Parinejad, will present their ideas and concepts for the city of the future. The various positions of the exhibition will be brought into dialogue in various accompanying events. (am)
