 “MOMENTOGRAPHY OF A FAILURE” with Nafiseh Fathollahzadeh and Parham Mortazavian

Nafiseh Fathollahzadeh und Parham Mortazavian gave a historical and theoretical background on history of urban planning and changing socio-spatial environment in Marzahn-Lichtenberg and Hellersdorf. A special focus was on the socialist concept of co-living since 70’s, as well as how the “Lösung der Wohnungsfrage als soziales Problem” has transformed the district in recent years.
