In the third episode of our URBAN DEVELOPMENT PODCAST, we spoke with Dipl.-Ing. Peter Deluse. He is an architect and founder of the Berlin-based firm Deluse Architects.
In this episode of our podcast series, the focus was on housing construction in the ever-growing metropolis of Berlin. Some time ago, Peter Deluse surprised the city’s urban planners and building committees with a completely new, innovative proposal: namely, the idea of building residential buildings over existing rainwater retention basins.
Focus of the discussion: Creative possibilities of inner-city housing construction
Peter Deluse has identified two possible areas in the Berlin city area for this purpose: on the one hand, the retention basin on Wilmersdorf’s Forckenbeckstraße, and on the other, a much larger area on Kreuzberg’s Colubiadamm, right next to Tempelhofer Feld.
We talked to Peter Deluse about this idea and the possibility of actually implementing it.
