Berlin has a tradition of alternative culture, squatting, and collaborative housing, especially after the fall of the Wall. While redevelopment and rebuilding efforts have drastically changed the city’s urbanism, many of these co-housing projects continue to thrive. Many of these projects are featured on the Institute for Creative Sustainability’s (id22) Creative Sustainability Tours, such as this one in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg kiez (district).
