The former airfield has an independent character, which is composed of landscape, historical, atmospheric and urban ecological components. At the same time, however, the area lacks sub-spatial qualities and elements that would allow it to be scaled. A park concept is proposed that preserves the expanse and the characteristics of the airfield.

The concept distinguishes between the three areas of Wiesenmeer, park and city ring. The city ring connects the surrounding quarters with the former airfield. The park setting conveys the leap in scale to the open space. At the same time it frames the former airfield. New uses are accommodated on the areas of the park setting or the city ring.

In the future, citizens' and actors' wishes are to be integrated on the site. At the same time, the overriding natural qualities of the site are to be safeguarded. To this end, the park is composed of three different sections, each of which is assigned to the neighbouring urban districts.

Each section is assigned a superordinate topic based on the immediately adjacent context, consisting of a spatial image, an associated framework of orders and rules.

  • Schillerquartier Neukölln / Urban piers at Wiesenmeer: at Schillerquartier, piers extend the city roads leading to the airfield in the direction of the Wiesenmeer. They form axes along which the park structure develops.
  • Tempelhof / Urban Coast: the Tempelhofer Quartier is characterised by the course of the S-Bahn lines and the elongated arch along the taxiways, comparable to a coastline. Based on this course, the park structure is run parallel to it.
  • Kreuzberg / Archipelago: the park structure develops like an island and is oriented towards the characteristic tree population. At a clearly perceptible distance from the taxiway, it condenses in special places and forms crystallization points.
