With HORIZN BER CITY, an ecosystem is arising directly next to BER where work, leisure, and well-being meld in a neighbourhood that will attract new kinds of hybrid usages in new, sustainable forms of construction. HORIZN BER CITY will constitute the very heart of BER CITY and also functions as the blueprint for further developments in and around the airport. With the development of HORIZN BER CITY, the airport operating company seeks to find new answers to the question of how neighbourhoods can succeed in flourishing long-term in the future. Our guiding principles structure our vision of a future district in which innovation is construed holistically and sustainably, and serve as inspiration, motivation, and guidance along the forthcoming path taken by the project.
