The new, agile Berlin
Schönhauser Allee is at the heart of Berlin’s new agility: easily accessible via planned cycle highways, ideally connected with car charging stations and bicycle rental stations, it offers everything that is expected of future mobility.
The building itself has over around 272 bicycle spaces, lockers for expensive bikes and e-bike charging facilities.
Fabian, what does agility mean to you?
“Mobility and infrastructure has to be completely rethought today. Agility covers more than just e-bikes and charging stations. Networking a variety of mobility options is the future goal to combine personal needs with the common good.
We are still right at the start of the whole process. That is precisely why very good, intelligent solutions are already required both in neighbourhoods and in public spaces. Electric cars and charging infrastructure will play an important role as buffer storage. This is the only way we are able to intelligently store and retrieve excess energy when it is needed.”
