Development & participation
The development of Tempelhofer Feld was and still is primarily in the hands of the Berlin population: After the Berliners voted in a referendum against a peripheral development of Tempelhofer Feld and in favour of largely preserving its current state, the Law for the Preservation of Tempelhofer Feld (ThFG) came into force in June 2014. It provides for the participatory creation of a development and maintenance plan (EPP) for the field and divides it into two areas with different protection status: while the central area will remain untouched, certain trees can be planted or play and sports facilities built in the outer meadow ring.
The area will be carefully developed with the participation of the citizens as a multifunctional open space. Everyone's ideas, suggestions and comments on the design are welcome. They have been included in a broad participation process since autumn 2014.
