Focussing on the projected Berlin Westkreuzpark as a casestudy, the studio is to explore the potentialities of the (constructed) urban topographies as an opportunity. Gaining an understanding and making use of ground and soils, as much as of engineered constructions and architectural buildings, and vegetation we aim to validate the specificity and potentiality of the site as an essential driver of innovative, resilient and sustainable urban development. Underlying would be the understanding of the environment as a cojoined, processural and dynamic realm that includes built and natural elements. The aim is to gain an understanding of site specificity and aptitude to develop projects – be they architectural, landscape or infrastructural – from a reading of the site as a spatial, physical and social resource. You are asked to develop an informed but individual design approach.
