AnG Akademie einer neuen Gropiusstadt

CUD Chair for Urban Design and Urbanization TU Berlin

AnG 1 - This is Gropiusstadt. A mass housing settlement of more than 30.000 inhabitants in the South of Berlin, it was developed based on the initial planning of TAC The Architects Collaborative between 1962 and 1975. Originally, most of the housing was developed in the framework of the German state subsidized social housing program. Today, an increasing number of buildings are owned and run by private housing companies. Since 2010, the AnG Akademie einer neuen Gropiusstadt engages in cooperative planning, design and urban interventions for various places and communities in Gropiusstadt, engaging citizens, housing companies, the local council and the Senate of Berlin. The Akademie is also supported by the chairs of Prof. Fioretti TU Berlin and Prof. Bükle TU Berlin, the chair of Prof Marquez Bauhaus Universität Weimar and kubus TU Berlin.

In what way does your proposal contribute to the open society?
The Akademie einer neuen Gropiusstadt provides a platform to investigate and produce Gropiusstadt’s common ground. How do the inhabitants relate to the project that is the city? How can they become the co-producers of the city? What has to be provided and what can be generated via cooperation?
