Offene Kartierung, Hamburg: Learning from your district I. A roundtrip in Altona, Hamburg
The title of our project is loosely inspired by the well-known case study "Learning from Las Vegas" by Denise Scott Brown et al. While in Las Vegas they studied the Strip, a prosper, shiny and vivid street of commerce and entertainement, our focus will be the "Grosse Bergstrasse", a pedestrian zone in the middle of Altona (a district of Hamburg), which was constructed 40 years ago and which is now labeled as ugly and almost dead. This so called "black spot" is scheduled for reinvention and redesigning. In the meantime the empty parts of this zone are filled with temporary art and cultural production, readable as first steps of restructuring and gentrification.
