Berlin Tempelhof Airport Virtual Fieldtrip
The former area of Tempelhof Airport in Berlin is one of Europe’s largest inner urban green areas. The closure of the airport in 2010 provided Berlin a large availability of centrally located land – the Tempelhof Field – for urban regeneration and alternative uses. In our strongly capitalist society land, especially in urban cores, is highly valued and sought after for development. However, local interests have had a strong influence in shaping how the land has been reallocated. The site provides an interesting and unique case study for geographic analysis including historical, political, economic and social aspects. This virtual fieldtrip provides an entry point to explore the site from different perspectives.
