Dutch professor wants to transform the controversial Berlin City Palace into a jungle

Only a few construction projects in Germany are more controversial than the rebuilding of the City Palace in Berlin. With a bold plan, the Dutch professor Frans Vogelaar knows how to break the stuck debate.

In the heart of Berlin one of the most controversial buildings of the moment stands out: the rebuilding of the Berliner Stadtschloss. This building, located at the Unter den Linden, will house the Humboldt Forum . Now that the debate is seriously stuck, the Dutch professor of Hybrid Space Frans Vogelaar opens the debate with a radical proposal: he wants to transform the imposing Prussian palace into a jungle.

The Dutch professor Frans Vogelaar, who founded Hybrid Space Lab together with architecture professor Elizabeth Sikiaridi, was invited to discuss and work on this issue.
