Frankfurt/Oder / Warschau / Brest / Minsk / Smolensk / Moskau
The Bauhaus Kolleg on “Transit Spaces” examined selected places along the corridor between Berlin and Moscow, treating them as case studies of the urban transformation processes that have taken place since the lifting of the Iron Curtain. Corridors are models of selective integration into the New Europe. Decisions on who is connected with whom in the European area are at the same time decisions on how people will live, work and travel in the future. This volume is a compilation of essays, reflections and cartographic studies that analyse the making of cities in the post-socialist era under the influence of global capitalism.
