Berlin TXL thinks about the city and its future
As soon as the Airport Tegel is closed, a research and industrial park is growing in its place — for the city of the future. This will be the meeting place for young entrepreneurs, students, investors, manufacturers, and scientists, where they can work together to develop and produce solutions for the cities of tomorrow, and export these worldwide.
The dream of flying has been fulfilled.
Time for new dreams.

Will we live in space stations on mars? Maybe. But maybe we will soon be living in space stations on earth.
Our planet is becoming a world of cities: 1.5 million people move to cities each week. And in the next 40 years, we will see more cities built than in the last 4,000 years. A total of 70% of the world’s population will then live on 3% of the earth’s surface.
Organizing this is a real challenge. We need new solutions for mobility, for energy, and for resources. And we need new materials and intelligent systems to make these solutions possible.We need urban technologies. Technologies for the cities of tomorrow.
