Seven designs for the future of the Checkpoint Charlie

How the last two undeveloped plots at Checkpoint Charlie will exactly look like, we do not know today. Therefore, to find optimal solutions, various public participation formats were carried out. Furthermore, seven architectural offices were commissioned to develop ideas for a possible urban design of the area. These designs were made available to interested citizens and they were able to comment during an exhibition in our project Charlie Living near Checkpoint Charlie. Additionally, the exhibition can be visited at the Senate Department for Urban Development and Housing until 21 August 2018. Following the various participation formats, an implementation competition will start soon, in which further architectural offices will draw up concrete plans for the development of Checkpoint Charlie. The winner of the architectural competition is to be determined until the end of 2018.
