Cities are full of stories — simultaneous, contradictory, overlapping, and inextricably connected. Living the City tells over fifty stories from architecture, art, and city planning projects in the main hall of the former Tempelhof Airport. The National Urban Development Policy exhibition shows processes and opportunities for action in cities across Europe.

For three months, the former airport will be transformed into a venue for city life. Walking through an urban collage, visitors will encounter a range of stories from people and projects that are actively involved in the city and civic society. These stories ask questions about fundamental activities like loving, living, moving, making, participating, learning, playing and dreaming in the city. These are stories that shape and transform, that make you feel and think. A wide-ranging event and education programme invites everyone to actively participate and contribute.

The exhibition runs until 20 December 2020.

Organiser: Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community
