fem*MAP BERLIN. Feminist spatial systems for a non-sexist city

(2021)

The project fem*MAP Berlin is the result of a research- and mapping seminar held at the Chair for Urban Design and Urbanization, TU Berlin in 2020. It aims to make visible both the inequalities which are inscribed in the spatial structures of our cities through social gender relations as well as the existing feminist spatial systems and practices of resistance by the means of critical mapping a...

Wohnhaft im Verborgenen

Eichhorst, Finya ; Gunia, Anne ; Kelling, Emily ; Pelger, Dagmar ; Runge, Farina ; Schütze, Alina ; Wagner, Lisa ; Wulf, Jonas (2020)

Die Kommunen in Deutschland sind verpflichtet, Obdachlose vor Straßenobdachlosigkeit zu bewahren. Häufig kommen sie dieser Verpflichtung nach, indem sie die Kosten für Hostelsbetten übernehmen. In diesem Zusammenhang stellt die Berliner Hostelwirtschaft mit wohnungslosen Menschen eine versteckte Form der Wohnungslosigkeit dar, die weder in der Stadt sichtbar ist noch in der öffentlichen Debatte...

The Entanglement of Class, Marriage and Real Estate: The Visual Culture of Egypt’s Urbanisation

Hendawy, Mennatullah ; Stollmann, Jörg (2020-06-26)

A majority of scholars consider Egypt’s urban development a product of the neo-liberal political economy facilitated by the country’s central government. In this article, we want to shift our attention towards the public and its demand for housing. We describe the urban everyday experiences of a population within a country in which a visual culture established via public media creates an urban ...

Jargon der Stadt

Galling-Stiehler, Andreas ; Hagg, Katharina ; Bovolenta, Alessandro ; Bowinkelmann, Ina ; Gundlach, Kim Annaluz ; Horn, Andreas ; McClennan, George ; Müller, Sasa ; Teuber, Julie ; Wagner, Lisa ; Zettl, Alexandra (2019)

Der Jargon der Stadt behandelt die Sprache, in der wir über Stadt reden und kommunizieren. Im Rahmen eines studentischen Seminars haben wir untersucht, wie wir - gezielt oder unbewusst - die Stadt mit unseren Bildern und Geschichten anreichern, überlagern und weiterschreiben. In diesem Sinne ist die Stadt in all ihren Dimensionen, ob physisch, sozial, politisch oder medial, etwas Ungewisses und...

Lighthouses, funding alliances, and cultural intermediaries

Rabodzeenko, Ivan (2019)

Over the last three decades in Germany and the UK, groups and networks of spatially-focused entrepreneurs have been gaining more influence on the developments of city neighbourhoods and urban policies. This included Development Trusts providing housing, workspace and social services in deprived neighbourhood across the UK, to networks of temporary users changing a regeneration strategy for a la...

Das Kotti-Prinzip

Awan, Nishat ; Bock, Christine ; Hasbun Chavarría, Yamil ; Hamann, Ulrike ; Holm, Andrej ; Kaltenborn, Sandy ; Pappenberger, Ulrich ; Stollmann, Jörg (2018-06)

Wem gehört die Stadt? Wer darf wohnen – wer muss gehen? Wer entscheidet darüber? Und mit welchen Mitteln? Ein halbes Jahr lang begleiteten Christine Bock und Ulrich Pappenberger die Mieter*inneninitiative Kotti & Co um zu verstehen, wie Sozialmieter*innen zu einflussreichen Akteuren der Berliner Stadt- und Wohnungspolitik wurden. Die Studie folgt der Akteur-Netzwerk-Theorie und erzählt von der ...

Urban planning practice under neo-customary land tenure

Akaateba, Millicent Awialie (2018)

Contemporary discourses on land policy in sub-Saharan African countries have shifted from polarised debates that hitherto promoted formal land administration or romanticised customary tenure systems. Recent policy trends have emphasised the integration of customary and state tenure systems as a nascent strategy to achieve equitable land delivery. Conceptually embedded in the exploratory concept...

Energy efficiency and design measures in social infrastructure planning (the case of Tehran)

Khodabakhsh, Peyman (2018)

Given the robust trends towards global urbanization propensity, the energy and sustainability challenges cannot be addressed without explicit consideration of urban energy systems and their specific challenges and opportunities. A considerable amount of energy waste in the building and transport sector comes about due to inefficient development patterns as well as consumption habits. Towards st...

Spatial Commons. Die Nachbarschaft und ihre Gewerberäume als sozial-räumliches Gemeingut

Bretfeld, Nada ; Heilgemeir, Anna ; Lammert, Friedrich ; Pelger, Dagmar ; Schläger, Philip (2020)

Der sogenannte Wrangelkiez in Kreuzberg ist eines der am stärksten von Gentrifizierung bedrohten Stadtviertel Berlins, verfügt aber zugleich über eine der widerstandsfähigsten Bewohnerschaften der Stadt. Die urbane Nachbarschaft wird in der vorliegenden Publikation unter dem Gesichtspunkt der Commons und des (Dis-)Commonings betrachtet. Dies geschieht aus dreierlei Perspektiven: Planung, Gemei...

Bioenergy production and sustainable development

Robledo-Abad, Carmenza ; Althaus, Hans-Jörg ; Berndes, Göran ; Bolwig, Simon ; Corbera, Esteve ; Creutzig, Felix ; Garcia-Ulloa, John ; Geddes, Anna ; Gregg, Jay S. ; Haberl, Helmut ; Hanger, Susanne ; Harper, Richard J. ; Hunsberger, Carol ; Larsen, Rasmus K. ; Lauk, Christian ; Leitner, Stefan ; Lilliestam, Johan ; Lotze-Campen, Hermann ; Muys, Bart ; Nordborg, Maria ; Ölund, Maria ; Orlowsky, Boris ; Popp, Alexander ; Portugal-Pereira, Joana ; Reinhard, Jürgen ; Scheiffle, Lena ; Smith, Pete (2017)

The possibility of using bioenergy as a climate change mitigation measure has sparked a discussion of whether and how bioenergy production contributes to sustainable development. We undertook a systematic review of the scientific literature to illuminate this relationship and found a limited scientific basis for policymaking. Our results indicate that knowledge on the sustainable development im...

From Targets to Action

Knopf, Brigitte ; Fuss, Sabine ; Hansen, Gerrit ; Creutzig, Felix ; Minx, Jan ; Edenhofer, Ottmar (2017)

At the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015 ambitious targets for responding to the threat of climate change have been set: limiting global temperature increase to “well below 2 °C […] and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C”. However, calculating the CO2 budget for 1.5 °C, it becomes clear that there is nearly no room left for future emissions. Sc...

Spatial Commons – urban open spaces as a resource

Pelger, Dagmar ; Klever, Paul ; Klotz, Steffen ; Pappert, Lukas ; Schulze, Jens (2017)

Space has to be discussed once one focuses on the commons, the natural and cultural resources securing the well-being of a community. The question of availability of these resources includes asking for the place where they are accessible or where they are made accessible and thus always the question of the spatial organization of this society. This publication wants to provide a first overview ...

Catching two European birds with one renewable stone

Creutzig, Felix ; Goldschmidt, Jan Christoph ; Lehman, Paul ; Schmid, Eva ; Blücher, Felix von ; Breyer, Christian ; Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Jakob, Michael ; Knopf, Brigitte ; Lohrey, Steffen ; Susca, Tiziana ; Wiegandt, Konstantin (2014)

The threat of climate change and other risks for ecosystems and human health require a transition of the energy system from fossil fuels towards renewable energies and higher efficiency. The European geographical periphery, and specifically Southern Europe, has considerable potential for renewable energies. At the same time it is also stricken by high levels of public debt and unemployment, and...

Stakeholder involvement in sustainability science

Mielke, Jahel ; Vermaßen, Hannah ; Ellenbeck, Saskia ; Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Jaeger, Carlo (2016)

Discussions about the opening of science to society have led to several developments: New fields of sustainability science and transformative research have emerged and the "megatrend" of stakeholder participation has reached the academic world and thus research processes. This challenges the way science is conducted and the tools, methods and theories perceived appropriate. Although researchers...

Participatory design in transit-oriented development uncovers social benefits

Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Creutzig, Felix (2016)

Transit-oriented development (TOD) tackles multiple challenges simultaneously and fosters sustainable urban development. Low-carbon intensity transport modes help mitigating climate change, enhance the quality of local ecosystems and offer monetary savings. While less well studied, TOD also positively affects citizen’s social interactions. The social sustainability that can be drawn from TOD in...

How participatory planning processes for transit-oriented development contribute to social sustainability

Fernandez Milan, Blanca (2015)

Transit-oriented development (TOD) is a relatively recent neighbourhood development concept associated with the three dimensions of urban sustainability (environmental, economic and social). Traditionally, TOD has been associated with environmental and economic benefits. Recent research has shown evidence of positive social outcomes related to the spatial characteristics of TOD areas. But the s...

A systematic framework of location value taxes reveals dismal policy design in most European countries

Milan Fernandez, Blanca ; Kapfer, David ; Creutzig, Felix (2016)

Location values have long been recognized as an attractive instrument to raise municipal revenues. First, they increase fiscal efficiency and equability compared to traditional property taxes. Second, they can be used to enhance sustainable urban planning. The question of how to design a location value tax has long been discussed in various strands of literature, but there are few efforts to cr...

Municipal policies accelerated urban sprawl and public debts in Spain

Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Creutzig, Felix (2016)

Urban form and resource consumption co-evolve dynamically with public finances. While in compact urban settlements public service is provided more efficiently, and in larger amounts per surface area, sprawled developments often translate into larger marginal infrastructure investments, and into higher rates of consumption of resources per capita: land, raw materials, and transport fuels. Yet th...

Water security in an urbanized world

Fernandez Milan, Blanca (2016)

Ensure access to water and sanitation for all is one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recently recognized at the international community. The combination of natural constraints, population forecasts and climate change threat this and other SDGs closely related. In cities, inequalities in water security become more explicit as complexity in water management given by institutional and ...

Reducing urban heat wave risk in the 21st century

Fernandez Milan, Blanca ; Creutzig, Felix (2015-09-05)

Global warming increases the frequency, intensity and duration of heat waves, particularly endangering urban populations. However, the health risks of heat waves are distributed unequally between people because of intrinsic person-specific characteristics and extrinsic factors. The confluence of forecasted urbanisation and projected heat wave increase necessitates the identification of strategi...
