Colloquium Series: Daniela Sandler" Living Projects"

Wed Nov 3, 2010, 12:15pm to 1:30pm
Hummanities 210

“Living projects” (Hausprojekte) are socially diverse alternative residential communities that offer affordable housing; collective, collaborative management; and cultural venues such as movie theaters, small independent businesses, galleries, and clubs. Representative of a distinctive thread in Berlin’s history and connected to the city’s identity, they are also in tension with official policies for urban development and private real estate investment, and under frequent threat of eviction. This talk analyzes Hausprojekte from a cultural, urban, and architectural perspective.  For more information click here.
