'Constant change is the only constant and challenge in life' - Heraklit

Join Factory Berlin's People & Spaces Circle to take a look at the change of spaces and places in Berlin and the threats but also chances behind it.

Since the 1990’s Berlin is in a fast-forward mode of constant transformation. Buildings, places and institutions are coined with new meanings, have to adapt, are re-purposed & face new challenges. A new era introduced by Covid-19 just speeded up this development.

We've invited Lutz Leichsenring, spokesperson of the Clubcommission Berlin, Alexander S. Wolf, Founder of Aussergewöhnlich Berlin and representative of Transiträume Berlin, Tatjana Kaube from Kulturraum Berlin GmbH, and Dipl. Ing. Clemens Kampermann, architect and director at gmp - von Gerkan, Marg and Partners Architects, currently leading the transformation project of Tegel Airport, to talk about the transformation of places and spaces in Berlin.

Please note this is an online stream event and there will be no in-person attendance. Guests must RSVP on Eventbrite and will receive the livestream link in advance of the event via email.

In 2009, he founded his own network AusserGewöhnlich Berlin and dedicates himself as an expert and author to a new scientific discipline, dictyonomy – the study of proper networking.
