David Chipperfield wins competition for Georg-Knorr-Park in Berlin
The British firm headed by David Chipperfield will be tranforming an old industrial zone in the Berlin's Marzahn district into a residential and commercial neighborhood.

The largest, central courtyard is thought of as a tpwn square complete with a childcare center, restaurants, and cafés. Based on a column grid, a system comprising three different modules gives the spatial flexibility needed for the apartments and the ground-level commercial and retail units to be configured.
