Green spaces are essential for the quality of life, wellbeing, and health of urban populations.
Today, the focus on and interest in green urban spaces is increasing thanks to initiatives working toward Healthy Cities, environmental justice, food security, and strengthening local communities.
Current issues such as climate change, the rapid loss of biodiversity, and accelerating ecological concerns urge us to reconsider our relation to nature. Facing the challenges of the Urban Age, we rethink the juxtaposition of nature versus artifact by integrating plant material in our architectural surroundings, merging nature with the built environment.

It must be a very special event when Ada Colau, former city activist and since 2015 Mayor of Barcelona, and Sadiq Aman Khan, London’s first Muslim city head, travel to Berlin without being invited by the Governing Mayor. Nevertheless, both will be in town on Thursday – and will open the second Make City Festival with building senator Katrin Lompscher and other guests. The theme of the 18-day event is “City Remixed”.

With the increasing urbanization and the virulent climate crisis, interest in nature is also growing. In various formats, such as talks, discussions, guided tours, exhibitions, workshops, open-house events and more, the public is invited to think of green and gray infrastructure in the city.
