Entrant‘s description

Urban Arcadia – Berlin 2020/2070
Special Zone: The Border as a Place of Cooperation
Berlin is a special city, and this applies to the areas within and beyond the settlement areas. In particular after the increasing densification of the inner areas of Berlin, the outer city and suburban areas should become a focal point for urban planning efforts. Because Berlin is growing rapidly here as well and doing so almost unnoticed. Only those who view and understand the border area between Berlin and Brandenburg as an independent space will discover its enormous and hidden potential and recognise opportunities for its qualified and innovative growth.
