The Executive Board of the Deutscher Werkbund Berlin regrets the cancellation of the model project by the owners. “The new owners are obviously not prepared to comply with the rules of the target agreement, because we demanded no more and no less,” said chairman Uli Hellweg. “The model character of a Werkbund project must also be reflected in the way in which it deals with each other and in the process design,” said Christiane Thalgott, member of the advisory board. “For the state of Berlin, this calls into question a outstandig urban development project,” continued the former Munich City Councilor.

The Bremen House – a model of the future? – Panel discussion with Uli Hellweg, Martin Pampus, Dr. Ben Brix and Prof. Katja Pahl.
With the Urban Development Plan for Housing, or STEP Wohnen for short, the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen is setting the framework for a new model of “living” from 2021. What traditions and qualities can one rely on? What are the future requirements and goals? What changes do we have to react to in planning and projects? The input of experts is just as important as the ideas and opinions of the citizens.
Uli Hellweg will give the keynote speech at the specialist event “Raumwerk D”. Düsseldorf plans to develop a spatial structure for the city and its subspaces in a broad-based citizen participation process. Raumwerk D is intended to develop an urban development concept for Düsseldorf at an urban level in a discursive process with the city society.
How does integration in the neighbourhood work? How can the participation of all people be ensured – regardless of origin, age, religion, education or social status? How must living, living and working be designed and connected? To answer these questions, VIVAWEST and RAG Montan Immobilien have initiated the project “Glückauf Nachbarn – Modellquartier Integration”. In a multi-stage innovative process with a theoretical think tank and practical workshop phase, four international, interdisciplinary planning teams developed solutions with a model character for integration-promoting neighbourhood development. These results will be presented for the first time in their entirety at the symposium “Glückauf Nachbarn – Impulse für erfolgreich Integration im Quartier” on 20 June 2018. More

The decision for Hamburg’s new large urban expansion area “Oberbillwerder” has been made. On 24 May 2018, the Advisory Board of the Competitive Dialogue chaired by Uli Hellweg selected the winning design for Oberbillwerder with a clear 18:2 vote: the Danish-Dutch-German planning team ADEPT Aps with Karres + Brands and Transsolar Energietechnik. The “The Connected City” design blends in perfectly with the existing landscape structure and creates new connections to the neighbouring districts. Oberbillwerder is developed as an “Active City” model district and is decisively influenced by the topics of health, nutrition and sport. More
