Planungsbüro für Urbane Transformation
The Planungsbüro für Urbane Transformation is an interdisciplinary team with competencies in design, architecture, cultural management and spatial strategies. Our playground is the city. We rallied around the belief, that a strong civil society is able to organise cities more sustainable than large-scale investors. We work for future cities shaped and used in community. Out of this reason we work for the development of the ALTE MU.
The Planungsbüro für Urbane Transformation was founded to professionalize the process of development of the ALTE MU and to provide a contact partner for city administration, politics and planning. We understand ourselves as the development and management module of the “creative village in the city”. Specifically we offer design and planning services, project development, participation procedures, as well as analyses of city and society, we provide financing and funding models for the areas living, working, culture and education for and in the ALTE MU.
The second pillar of our work is the organization of a network. The goal is to erase the gap between public, planners and users. We want to create a platform for vision development, which enables to think cities in a new way through integrated societal analysis and implement local, processional development through participation in districts. The focus is in this case on the disciplines architecture, design as well as society and culture.
The vital basis of our engagement is the conviction that knowledge, abilitys and skills but also good ideas should be shared. We want to create interaction, stimulate imitation and discussion.
We aspire interconnectedness on local, regional, national and international level with city makers, future-shapers and creatives, that have gathered everywhere to rethink urbanism in a more sustainable and collaborative way.
Until now we met:
Red House (Tel Aviv), Venn (Tel Aviv), GATHER (Amsterdam), Holzmarkt (Berlin), Godsbanen (Aarhus), Institut for X (Aarhus), Rechenzentrum (Potsdam). We also consider the cooperation with universities and researchers as central aspect. The booklet “Neue Räume, Alte Mu” emerged from the cooperation with the FH Potsdam.
