Experiment city

As usual the Germans are way ahead when it comes to ecological projects and temporary use of urban voids and abandoned buildings. This website bundles a number of these projects, research and contacts in Berlin, as well as a few international examples in – what a coincidence – São Paulo: They mention the Coopamare recycling program; reuse of factories by the cultural intstitutions SESC Pompéia and SESC Belenzinho; and Teatro da Vertigem, a theatre group that performed a play in 2006 on boats and riverbanks of the polluted Tietê river.
Various urban researchers and artistic projects are associated to the site, such as Urban Dialogues and Berliner Unterwelten.
