The Tegel-landscape’s overall appearance is dominated by the vast expanse of the airfield. It is also the largest open space in Berlin. The outskirts of the Jungfernheide forest which were the predominant landscape element for a long time now frame the clearing.
Woods and open space are the main elements in the landscape framework and are supplemented by the remnants of its original purpose as an airport. These not only include structural remainders such as landing strips and terminal premises, but also the pre-existing fauna-flora-habitat on the airfield.
The concept’s primary ambition is to work with the existent qualities the site offers and to enforce them in a gentle and sustainable way. Another important goal is to integrate the area into a working spatial context and link it to the current urban structure.
There are two underlying separate catalysts for the development: The development of the landscape’s appearance and the creation of a commerce and technology campus. They are concurrent and at the same time independent of one another.
