As part of the project Parklets or SchöneFlächen, five street-side car parking spaces were used alternatively for three weeks in late summer 2020.

The ideas collected in an ideas workshop with citizens were further developed by us and translated into an overarching concept. The connecting link was a stable wooden frame of approx. 2.5x5x2m, which also represented the public area of 12sqm as a spatial dimension and allowed flexible inner life. The five SchönenFlächen referred to different aspects and roles of public space, which are however currently occupied by stationary traffic: Communication, Meeting Place, Recreation, Movement, Exchange, Green Space, Political Discussion.

From 5 to 26.9.2020, residents could exercise, talk to each other, relax in a hammock, sniff basil, swap things, admire pieces of laundry or simply reflect on how much space cars take up in the city.
The project was implemented with low material costs and also the support of volunteers including hochC staff. It was part of a series of projects in Schöneberg North dedicated to climate protection and the traffic and mobility turnaround.
