Across the Divide
December 7-8, 1994, Chicago, Illinois

The City Design Center co-sponsored a two-day symposium, “Across the Divide,” on urban planning, design, and social housing in Berlin and Chicago. The symposium included a lecture by Dr. Hans Stimman, a Secretary of the Federal State of Berlin, entitled “The Rebuilding of the Federal State of Berlin: City Center and its Historic Neighborhoods,” and opportunities for exchanges be-tween architects and planners from Berlin and Chicago on redevelopment initiatives in their respective cities.
