In Juli 2019, will Berlin 2020 gGmbh launch the anonymous two-phase International Urban Design Ideas Competition for Berlin-Brandenburg 2070. The main goal of the „International Urban Planning Ideas Competition Berlin-Brandenburg 2070“ is not to discuss a completely different, new metropolitan region next to or on the surface of the existing, but the further development of the existing metropolitan region.

With a basically excellent transport network, many centers of different rank, an above-average housing stock and a comparatively undeveloped surrounding area, the metropolitan region has ideal future conditions that must be recognized, cultivated and further developed.

The subspace to be displayed is freely selectable within the entire competition area. From the submitted works of the first phase, the jury selects up to 20 office teams to deepen their contributions in the second phase.
2. Phase
In the second phase, the main focus is on the deepening of structural development contexts within the framework of an overall plan in M ​​1: 100,000 as well as proposals for three specific sub-areas, which can be chosen freely within the scope of ten main topics. For each well two slides are to be created. Within the main topics, three sub-areas have to be selected. Of the three selected sub-areas, at least one must be in Brandenburg and one in Berlin.
