Public participation

Alongside the information exhibition on Hardenbergplatz, the SMART SPACE Hardenbergplatz pilot project also provides an online participation area on Here, all anyone interested can comment on the project content and make their suggestions. Through your participation, the project can gain important information about the users of the square and their needs. Please support the project partners from the municipality, business and science in making public space more flexible and thus opening up new development potential for Berlin's inhabitants. The results of the public participation will flow into the project and the elaboration of the prototypes to be developed.

  • 1 | If you had a magic wand, what would your ideal version of a smart Hardenbergplatz look like?

    What does the Hardenbergplatz of the future look like? What should be on the square and what should be made possible? Should cars be replaced by flying cabs or should the streets be turned into forests? Or would you simply like more bicycle racks or a digital information screen for the bus stops? Here you can add your ideas and visions to the map, react to the suggestions of others and develop them further.

  • 3 | What should be bookable on the platform?

    Let's say you could book the public space to spend your free time there. You could play street music, put on a play or hold a workshop. As a restaurant-owner, you could offer your guests more outdoor seating and thus enliven the square. For which uses should public space, i.e. streets and squares, be bookable?
