Berlin’s cur­rent growth is pri­ma­rily dri­ven by new housing pres­su­res. In response, the Ber­lin senate is actively con­si­de­ring the deve­lop­ment of a new neigh­bor­hood for the city on a 70 Hec­tare site in the Buch­holz area of Pan­kow.
In this design stu­dio stu­dents will under­stand and deve­lop ideas for the con­tem­porary neigh­bor­hood of the future that inte­gra­tes with its sur­roun­ding urban form, and infra­st­ruc­ture. Stu­dents will ques­tion the cur­rent assump­ti­ons of what Ber­lin needs and for­mu­late com­pre­hen­sive and future ori­en­ted stra­te­gies, con­cepts and urban design frame­works for this new com­mu­nity.
Prof. Jain will share his 30-year inter­na­tio­nal expe­ri­ence (inclu­ding his role in desi­gning new towns & com­mu­nities) and his role as Chief Urban Desi­gner of Port­land, Ore­gon. In Port­land he was respon­si­ble for the deve­lop­ment of two new neigh­bor­hoods (The Pearl District, and South Water­front). This stu­dio will be future ori­en­ted, yet prag­ma­tic in its ori­en­ta­tion. It will intro­duce new approa­ches and stra­te­gies for crea­ting mar­ket and soci­ally adap­tive urban design frame­works rather than tra­di­tio­nal plans.
