Realstadt is an exhibition on urban planning and architecture, gathering a wide array of models and ideas for and about cities, or rather the way we deal with cities. Combining projects, solutions and utopias from architecture offices, universities, local authorities and also individuals, Realstadt offers an eclectic, thought-provoking but also highly entertaining view of what might (or might not) make our cities a better place. The exhibition is extremely well laid-out and thought through, but maybe the most impressive part of it is the location: it is the first time that the main space of the former Kraftwerk Berlin-Mitte in Köpenicker Strasse is being used as an exhibition venue and open to the public – and what an amazing space it is. Chapeau to the makers of Realstadt that they were not afraid to let the location take centre-stage, and rather than competing for attention, adapted the exhibition to the environment, giving a prime example of how to create a perfect balance between architecture and content.
