The Märkische Quarter
Orientation System

The Märkische Quar­ter in Berlin is a met­ro­pol­i­tan area of 3.2 square kilo­me­tres with nearly 40,000 res­i­dents, the ori­en­ta­tion of which is not easy. The dis­trict of­fice of Berlin Rei­neck­endorf re­cently held a com­pe­ti­tion to re­design the ori­en­ta­tion sys­tem, which Moni­teurs won in 2013, and the firm, ac­com­pa­nied by the en­vi­ron­men­tal psy­chol­o­gists from PSY:PLAN, will be work­ing on a new con­cept. PSY:PLAN will re­search and con­sult for the pro­ject in the fields of ar­chi­tec­ture and the psy­chol­ogy of per­cep­tion. Moni­teurs al­ready worked in­tensely in this area in 2006, de­vel­op­ing an ori­en­ta­tion sys­tem for sev­eral res­i­den­tial build­ings for the or­gan­i­sa­tion Gesobau. > Pro­ject
