Robert           exploring           new           projects
06/05/2020 — East Side Berlin



I have just started a new project. I have begun to document an area known as #EastSide. It lies in the heart of #Berlin’s district Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg between Ostbahnhof, Warschauer Straße and the river Spree.

Its initial #urban planning dates back to the early 1990s. After the German Reunification some parts of this huge strip of land was railroad property but most of it lay empty and devastated as a consequence of being but a buffer zone during the Cold War.

The #EastSide has since been undergoing massive urban redevelopment and we are now seeing the last plots in the area to be completed. I will be examining how it is going to connect to its neighboring quarters. How is it going to affect the urban fabric, change the skyline even? How will it be adopted by the population? Well let's see!
