In the past decade, as an effect of the economic crisis and social movements, many actors in the architecture and planning fields 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, economists, as well as law specialists to experiment with new models for funding urbanism.
Wonderland invites protagonists of this new economic movement to send their concepts and case studies, contributing to an exhibition and discussion of alternative funding mechanisms in urbanism.
Between 28.10.2014 and 1.11.2014 the wonderland platform for european architecture held in Berlin, in cooperation with the Deutsches Architektur Zentrum (DAZ) and the European Cultural Foundation (ECF), a workshop with lectures, debates and film screenings on the topic of alternative funding models to help bottom-up urban regeneration in our cities.
We have been selected to screen our documentary.
It has benn very interesting to receive the feed back of the architecture researchers!
