The interplay between the city and money is currently particularly explosive in view of high construction costs, rising energy prices, inflation and simultaneously rising interest rates. Who is building our cities and why? Who shapes our cities? Who contributes to the common good and how? Who bears what risk in view of the current situation?
How can a climate-adapted city and affordable housing be combined in the future? How must politics intervene to steer the current situation - how can this be done uniformly on a federal level, beyond small-scale bureaucracy? Is expropriation a solution? How do we shape the future together?
The kick-off event of the series SPACE STUDIO deliberately addresses these questions from the different perspectives of architects, private project developers, public authorities and municipal housing companies.

The panelists are
Gunther Adler, Managing Director Human Resources, Autobahn GmbH and former State Secretary for Building, Housing, Urban Development in the Federal Ministry of the Interior, for Building and the Interior; Prof. Helga Blocksdorf, founder of the eponymous architecture firm in Berlin, and head of the Institute for Building Design at the Technical University of Braunschweig; Stefanie Frensch, board member of the Becker & Kries Family Foundation and managing director of Becker & Kries Holding GmbH & Co. KG and Managing Director of HOWOGE Wohnungsbaugesellschaft mbH from 2011 until early 2019; Lars Krückeberg, GRAFT Founding Partner; Reiner Müller, Head of Project Development, SIGNA Real Estate.
