The Greater Berlin we know today marks its 100th anniversary in 2020. That date offers a timely opportunity to review the city's strengths and weaknesses and consider what is required for a sustainable future. The Architekten- und Ingenieurverein zu Berlin e.V. has taken the initiative with an anniversary programme that asks the relevant questions and puts proposals from policymakers, civil society actors, and experts up for discussion. Three formats supply the setting: Urban Planning Network colloquia, an International Urban Design Ideas Competition for Berlin-Brandenburg 2070 and a major exhibition entitled 100 Years of (Greater) Berlin: An Uncompleted Project.
In Juli 2019, will Berlin 2020 gGmbh launch the anonymous two-phase International Urban Design Ideas Competition for Berlin-Brandenburg 2070. The main goal of the „International Urban Planning Ideas Competition Berlin-Brandenburg 2070" is not to discuss a completely different, new metropolitan region next to or on the surface of the existing, but the further development of the existing metropolitan region. With a basically excellent transport network, many centers of different rank, an above-average housing stock and a comparatively undeveloped surrounding area, the metropolitan region has ideal future conditions that must be recognized, cultivated and further developed.
