Planning, implementation & management

The Grün Berlin group works 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. We plan, develop and implement mainly open space projects that are of national significance and enhance Berlin’s appeal as a capital city offering a wide range of cultural, tourism and services options.
