Daniel Libeskind warns of dead inner cities and calls for new thinking


The US architect Daniel Libeskind lived in Berlin for 14 years and is following its development with concern. The real estate boom “prices out people from the city who serve the city, but the city can no longer afford it.”

It requires a rethinking of urban planning, looking at prestigious major projects such as the reconstruction of the Berlin City Palace , and towards modern social housing. And Libeskind wants to set a good example.
