Imagine and Build It

A generational design challenge begins today for urban planners at the International Federation for Housing and Planning World Congress. We put aside that mouthful acronym, as sustainable minds gear up for something green? urban? living? reclaimed?

The unique challenge presented is to envision the future site layout for Berlin's central airport, Tempelhof. It's a massive 988-acres with the opportunity for something wunderbar! Interestingly, it has been closed since last October and students were afraid that the land would be auctioned off to luxury developers.

What would you incorporate into this master plan?
