Urban Research: THE PFEFFERBERG BREWERY Development model


The aim of SCI-Arc's research enquiry was to identify successful development models for urban regeneration. One of the case studies was the Pfefferberg Brewery in Berlin. The Street Society carried-out site visits and organised interviews with local stakeholders, including Margitta Haertel, board director of the Pfefferwerk Foundation, in order to build a thorough understanding of the context and dynamics underpinning the brewery's development model. 

Pfefferberg has a unique model based on social and cultural development. It is an inclusive, integrated space that hosts many educational and cultural organisations, including internationally acclaimed tenants Olafur Eliasson and AiWeiWei.
