Grün Berlin Foundation

The Grün Berlin Foundation was founded in 2012 and is responsible for project implementation, construction and project management, creating new recreational, open spaces and parks of public and cultural significance as part of the Grün Berlin Group.

The Grün Berlin Foundation works for the State of Berlin on distinguished open space planning projects that are of urban development or urban policy interest beyond the Berlin region or require interdisciplinary management involving various administrative bodies. The Foundation also takes on special projects whose spatial and functional dimensions extend beyond the boundaries of individual urban districts.

A nine-member board monitors the foundation’s work. Dipl.-Ing. Christoph Schmidt is Chairman of the Board of Management and the Deputy Chairman is Helmut Siering.

Design of open space around the Kulturforum

Square
Current

Important cultural institutions are concentrated around the Kulturforum between Potsdamer Platz and Reichpietschufer, an area designed to function and be perceived as an ensemble. One key to restoring its functions is the planning of the Kulturforum’s open spaces.

Memorial
 

Since 2014 the T4 Memorial and Information Point has commemorated those murdered in the Nazi’s euthanasia programme in the Kulturforum’s northern area.

Information system for tourists

Current

Signs showing tourists the way have been erected all over Berlin since 2004. It’s a dynamic city and constantly changing so regular updates are necessary.
