What do you love or find special about Siemensstadt?
I find the architecture itself very, very beautiful. It reminds me a bit of the early days of the industrial era. When it all started. Siemens started in Berlin. I can identify Siemensstadt with those beginnings.
What are your hopes for the future of Siemensstadt?
Green space would be wonderful. Maybe some areas where people can exercise or play sports outdoors. Anything that benefits employees’ health. And places people can walk to and get away from it all for a little while. Meeting places would also be important. Informal encounters allow for the sharing of knowledge and ideas, interaction – so ideas can unfold.
