MakeCity is resolutely trans-disciplinary. Bringing together architects, urban planners, leading municipal decision makers, civic groups, urban designers and makers that are defining innovative strategies and new coalitions for social change in our cities.
As a result, over 200 events – from exhibitions, workshops and excursions in cultural centres, workspaces, studios, production and maker spaces to international panels at the festival centre – have been developed by the festival’s partners. The Chamber of Architects, the Senate for Urban
Development and Housing, embassies, NGOs, architecture practices, contested sites and new commercial and cooperative developments become sites for debate, discovery and exchange

Located in the heart of Berlin Mitte, the festival centre will serve as MakeCity’s main Urban Hub over the course of 11 days – a site for screenings, discussions, keynotes and workshops by festival partners. Here we build bridges and consolidate links between the city-wide conversations and exploratory tours.
New living models, mixed typologies and co-housing concepts are a major feature here. Building for increasing cultural diversity in cities, and responding to rapidly changing demographics are key issues when „Berlin Remixing“ comes into play. Multi-functionality is writ large amongst the new architecture and urban spaces featured both within the festival centre and with the MCO Tours and Studio Talks. We take a new look at the avant-garde aspects of the Berlin Block structure devised by Hobrecht and his compatriots in the 1860’s – as ideal models for flexible built environments that can support a broad range of residential types, crafts production and small-scale enterprises.
Both newly developed – and established but contested – Berlin ‘Höfe’ – courtyards dating back to 19th sites, as well as new builds for mixed-uses will be open to the public.

Britta and Matthew are participating in 3 of these events and showing the new Miniloft Kreuzberg.
