Architecture surrounds us all, yet at the same time discussions surrounding architectural and urban development processes are often conducted at a distance from the end user in spaces not conducive to inclusive dialogue between all actors. However, if architecture is not actively communicated and developed together with the end user, it becomes difficult for us to forge identity with our built environment.

The event is concerned with the question of how participatory, integral development processes can change and improve architecture, thus making it more sustainable. The theme will be explored in short impulse presentations with a fishbowl-discussion: how can we compare participatory approaches in rural and urban areas of Europe? How does participation work in developing countries? How can we create understanding and identification „from the bottom“?

CRCLR, Rollbergstr. 26, 12053 Berlin


Der Verwendung von erneuerbaren Ressourcen wie Holz und anderen Naturbaustoffen kommt eine Schlüsselrolle im Wandel zur postfossilen Gesellschaft zu. Experten wie Prof. Herrmann Kaufmann erläutern was in diesem Feld jetzt schon möglich ist und was die Herausforderungen in der Zukunft sind.

Das Netzwerk „die Nachwachsende Stadt - NWS“ widmet sie sich am Beispiel von Berlin Fragestellungen von Wachstum, Nachverdichtung, Ressourcenverbrauch, Eigentumsverhältnissen, Teilhabe und Mitbestimmung der Stadt. Verschiedene Netzwerkpartner erörtern und diskutieren mit den Besuchern Kernthesen der nachwachsenden Stadtvision.

Symposium: Cities in Transition -
The Future is Circular

27th June 2018 10:30am - 3pm
CRCLR, Rollbergstr. 26, 12053 Berlin


Cities are predestined to promote the transition to a circular economy and to benefit from the social, ecological and economic developments. To exchange practical knowledge and discuss concrete approaches and proposals for solutions, we invite you to a symposium that will address the following topics:


Panel 1

Materials & Buildings


The Panel presents innovative materials and construction solutions that upgrade buildings to material banks and thus allow the recycling and upcycling of components. It also discusses flexible architectural concepts that circular buildings are based on.

Prof. Nanni Grau, Hütten & Paläste Architekten
Prof. Dirk Hebel, Universität Karlsruhe
Andrea Klinge, ZRS Architekten Ingenieure
Jörg Finkbeiner, Partner und Partner Architekten
Dr. Jan Wurm,  Arup Berlin

Panel 2

City & Society


The Panel addresses the circular principles and their role in urban planning and examines social, ecological and economic aspects. These include new residential and business models which aim at flexible and thus more efficient use of space and services, which will change urban planning significantly.

Learners Lab

28th June 2018 10am - 6pm
CRCLR, Rollbergstr. 26, 12053 Berlin


In times of change, planners, architects and engineers are required to develop new working methods suited for a society in flux. The borders between these professions must be overcome in order to develop integrative and transdisciplinary solutions. Working progressively with appropriate networks to find solutions and root them in society offers enormous potential to achieve the necessary speed of change. Collective knowledge production and self-determined learning are themes that can produce designers with the ability to affect long lasting change in our rapidly changing society. Tools for knowledge sharing and a focus on collaboration allows learners to critically challenge and design their own learning environment. Design is a shared resource that can be further transformed and developed as part of a diverse and transdisciplinary network leading us to solutions not previously explored.

At the TU Berlin and the University of Kassel, self-determined groups of students work in transdisciplinary teams on questions concerning the city and our built environment for a post-fossil post-consumer society. The Learners Lab provides a platform for the exchange of relevant content and above all the discussion and testing of self-determined learning formats.

Workshop with pre-registration featuring students from:

Natural Builing Lab, TU Berlin
CHORA Conscious City, TU Berlin
