The green capital
A city where almost a third of its surface consists of forests, parks, gardens, lakes, rivers or waterways, but also of uncountable pockets of green spaces and abandoned buildings; all together, Berlin host an extensive – but invisible – network of hundreds of animal species living under their own rules and in parallel to the its wider urban system.
This extraordinary Berliner wildlife is the product of the city’s history and its urban destruction that left an irregular and disintegrated city landscape. Berlin has the richest urban fauna in Europe, where organic green corridors allow many species to get closer, move through or live in the centre of the city. As a complex urban living space, Berlin gives us the opportunity to envision new approaches to physical and spatial relation with nature and animals.
