A beloved cultural landmark, Berlin’s Tempelhof Airport was the world’s first passenger airport and the site of airlifts during the Berlin Blockade.  After the site was closed to air traffic in 2008, the city held a design competition to solicit proposals reimagining the site as a public space incorporating the existing runways and beautiful terminal buildingsSix finalists were selected from nearly 80 proposals, designing for activities like urban farming and beekeeping, a nature park, edible gardens, sports facilities and skate parks. The winning design will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
