29.10.2014 – 1.11.2014: Wonderlab Berlin – Funding Urbanism: workshop and Y-Table-Talks
until 16.11.2014: Exhibition of the workshop results
In the past decade, as an effect of the economic crisis and social movements, many actors in the architecture and planning fields recognized that traditional funding models lost their capacity to feed small-scale, community-oriented urban projects. While designers elaborated new methods to address problems of community, participation and ecology, they also created alliances with a new generation of developers, economists, as well as law specialists to experiment with new models for funding urbanism.
For Wonderlab Berlin, Wonderland invites protagonists of the new civic economy from various European cities to join the Funding Urbanism Berlin workshop: 4 days of site visits, presentations, debates and screenings, as well as an evolving exhibition.
