Perspectives for City West – Invitation to the discussion event on June 26, 2023

The City West is one of the most prominent places in the capital metropolis. Its cultural, architectural and political history is German contemporary history par excellence. The urban and architectural future of City West with its buildings and public spaces is of great importance for the whole of Berlin, for civil society, business and science. In the event we ask about perspectives for living, studying and working in City West and talk to the Berlin Senate and planning architects. Project manager Götz Kern, partner in the office Kleihues + Kleihues, will present the current project FÜRST (former Ku’damm Karree).
