In his book, “Life Between Buildings”, the Danish city planner Jan Gehl sorted out six basic activities that play an important role for the liveliness of an urban neighbourhood: walking, standing, sitting, seeing, hearing, talking. This b_tour explores the public spaces of Berlin’s Charlottenburg with the help of the activities mentioned. In a playful way, the group sets out in search of “space to live” between the Charlottenburg buildings. At the end of the walk, there will be a moment to exchange experiences.
In 2011 the Agency for Walking Culture was founded by Marie-Anne Lerjen in Zurich, Switzerland, to focus on artistic projects in the field of walking. One of the aims is to explore an embodied active learning of urban space. For that the Agency invites people to participate in 'conceptual walks'.
