The City Administration of Berlin is planning to transform the area around the city hall of Tempelhof district. Its bases were developed in an open dialogue between citizens, city and planners. The proposal is seeking to improve the public infrastructure on the one hand, and to make space for new housing development on the other. The current design includes the demolition of the existing public library and its relocation next to the City Hall on Tempelhofer Damm.
The M-ARCH-T typology design studio is taking on the challenge to design this new public building not only as a library but as a civic center – a public infrastructure that can house and inform public life in the local center of Tempelhof.
The 1st Mid term on December 9 with Matthias Ballestrem and Rainer Hehl showed some of the students approaches how to adress the themes of program mix and public space.
