Berlin Award 2016: Heimat in der Fremde

60 million people the world over have fled their homes. The dimensions of the refugee movement are becoming a major challenge for big cities in particular, where these displaced persons must be accommodated and provided for, given work and integrated into society in large numbers and in a short time. For this reason, it is necessary to quickly create adequate living space and interfaces between this living space and the urban realm in order to facilitate participation in urban life from the outset.

The Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development and the Environment is sponsoring the international Berlin Award 2016 – Heimat in der Fremde. This Award recognises innovative projects for accommodating refugees. The main goal of the Berlin Award 2016 – Heimat in der Fremde is to contribute to improving the quality of life of refugees through innovative projects. The successful integration of the projects in their urban context is an important part of this goal.

We are looking for innovative planning concepts and realised projects. Project contributions can be submitted by architects, planners, or planning teams as well as by owner-builders, project developers, community initiatives, institutes and operators. Project contributions must be possible to realise or already have been realised. It must be possible to adapt submitted projects to the requirements effective here in Berlin.
