EXPERI Conference “Transportation Transition: Redesigning Urban Spaces” 2024

Klausenerplatz Kiez
In a real-world experiment, the square was temporarily closed to cars. Residents and users of the square are able to experiment how they would prefer to use the transformed space.
  • The conference on July 3, 2024 is aimed at stakeholders from research, administration, urban and mobility planning, as well as business and civil society.
  • Recommendations for action for (political) decision-makers on the topics of land division and reorganization will presented amongst other findings.

On Wednesday, July 3 2024 the interdisciplinary research group from TU Berlin, RIFS Potsdam and the DLR Institute of Transport Research working on the project “EXPERI – Traffic Turnaround as a Socio-Ecological Real-World Experiment” is presenting the results of five years of work. This included but was not limited to the reorganization of the Klausenerplatz Kiez in Berlin-Charlottenburg or the Lausitzer Platz in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The measures were evaluated during the process to determine how public spaces can be transformed in such a way that it boosts active mobility and benefits as many people as possible.

Visitors can gain a deeper insight into the real experiments and the reached conclusions in lectures, workshops and panel discussions and examine them in talks with the researchers at the Coworking Space EINS at the TU Berlin.

In their lectures, Dr. Julia Jarass and Alexander Czeh will be taking a closer look at different aspects of the topic “Reshaping Urban Space - Potential Areas for Housing and Active Mobility” and participate in the panel discussion “From Car Space Consumption to Alternative Use Through the Example of Experimental Spaces and Housing”.
