About the Event

Architectural and urban planning utopias, uncompromising building typologies, urban landscapes as built experiments: In our city walk program this fall, we explore places in Berlin that impress, astonish and polarize – from the center to the periphery. We revive buildings that no longer exist and visit places that some want to see demolished, we reflect on heritage and memory culture as political tools, and discuss social and urban transformation processes as the results of radical planning paradigms. **CITY WALK FALL CALENDAR 2019** Learn more about Berlin from various different vantage points and join us on our expert-led city walks this fall. **September 14, 2019.** 2 p.m. Between Realism and Idealism – Art & Architecture in the DDR.  **September 28, 2019.** 2 p.m. Märkisches "Merkwürdiges" Viertel (in German) **October 05, 2019.** 10 a.m. Schlafen über der Autobahn – Wohnbebauung Schlangenbader Straße (in German). **October 12, 2019.** 2 p.m. Garden City Falkenberg – Early 20th century Ecotopia  **October 28, 2019.** 2 p.m. From Estrel to High Deck – The Little-Known Stretch of Sonnenallee **November 02, 2019.** 2 p.m. The Street Chronicles – Urban Transformation of Köpenicker Straße **November 16, 2019.** 2 p.m. Extinguished Architecture – Revisiting the Demolished Landmarks of Berlin 2+1 for dedicated city explorers: Book two city walks and join the third for free.
