The ‘Stadtwerk mrzn’ was an open and experimental construction site. At Otto- Rosenberg-Platz we were collectively building a local and international future laboratory, full of visions and diversity. Outside and together. With artisans, architects, artists and gardeners, young and old people, new and long-time neighbours, initiatives and associations created common ideas for open spaces, new job perspectives and community urban development. The focus was on their own initiative and enthusiasm for the ‘City’ community project.


After two pilot years, we passed on the baton and, along with it, the key to the barrier keeper’s cottage at a late summer campus festival – a group of courageous women who joined forces as creative producers during the project period will from now on continue to develop their workshops.

„The pilot of Marzahn“ continues to fly, ignites a next stage with network partners and works in a Berlin-wide network together with urban activists, because the right to use and design communal urban space must continue to be defended. ->
