The EXPERIMENTDAYS is kind of a conference about urban developments, which is running in Berlin the next days. So, if you are in town between the 15th - 23rd September you should check it out!
"The EXPERIMENTDAYS are a platform for cooperative housing projects, ideas and actors of creative sustainability in order to understand the city as a designed living space."
The program sounds quite promising - look up your favorite workshops, discussions or presentations here. In conjunction with the conference the topic-related book “CoHousing Cultures: Handbook for self-organized, community-oriented and sustainable housing” is going to be released, which might be interesting for urban developers:
"This book illustrates a colorful diversity of European examples including a cooperative’s barrier-free renovation of an old school in Berlin, collective housing for the 40+ generation in Stockholm and passive architecture planned by and for immigrants in Brussels."
Sounds like some interesting days in Berlin. Credits for promoting this event goes out to Tim Nebert (Urban Designer).
