Walk along the City – Perceiving, Inquiring, and Exploring Qualities of Urban Spaces
Aylin Akyildiz, Marie Duchêne, Technical University of Berlin, Faculty I - Humanities and Educational Sciences, Center for Metropolitan Studies
This research seminar intertwines the question of image and the trash issue raised by residents in a large residential complex in East Berlin, embedding them in current discussions on residential quality. Within this thematic context, the aim of the research seminar is to develop, investigate, and answer our own research questions about the mentioned neighborhood from an external perspective. The research team will approach the study area through city walks, contextualizing what is observed thematically to sharpen the view of urban space. Following aspects deemed exciting, research questions will be developed and explored using appropriate methods.
