Wonderlab Berlin: FUNDING URBANISM
As an effect of the economic crisis and social movements in the past decade many actors in architecture and planning recognized that traditional funding models lost their capacity to feed small-scale, community-oriented urban projects. While designers elaborated new methods to address problems of community, participation and ecology, they also created alliances with a new generation of developers and economists as well as law specialists to experiment with new models for funding urbanism.
