Letters to the Mayor: Berlin – DAZ-Exhibition opening on 15.11.2019 at 19 o’clock

„Dear Mr. Mayor…“

What ideas, visions and expectations do architects and city stakeholders have for Berlin? Letters to the Mayor: Berlin invited participants to write a letter to Mayor Michael Müller expressing their ideas, wishes and visions for the future of the city. These letters, which include suggestions for a livable and sustainable Berlin, are on display at the DAZ and will be discussed at various events with city stakeholders.

Strong voices from the building culture for a sustainable and livable Berlin are taking the floor. There are many forms and themes: traffic and mobility, housing and land issues, open spaces and post-consolidation… Appeals, personal wishes, future utopias and clear demands – “Buy the Spree! – are addressed to the Governing Mayor of Berlin. A total of 86 letters from 110 authors*, including a letter from Jan Kleihues, were submitted as part of the project.

Letters to the Mayor: Berlin was curated by the DAZ team and is part of a global initiative by Storefront for Art and Architecture. Letters to the Mayor was initiated by Storefront for Art and
Architecture in New York in 2014 and has been presented in several cities around the world, including Athens, Buenos Aires, Lisbon, Madrid, Mexico City, Oslo, Panama City and Taipei.
