Review of Jens Lachmund, Greening Berlin – Etienne Benson
Samenvatting How plant and animal species conservation became part of urban planning in Berlin, and how the science of ecology contributed to this change. Although nature conservation has traditionally focused on the countryside, issues of biodiversity protection also appear on the political agendas of many cities. One of the emblematic examples of this now worldwide trend has been the German city of Berlin, where, since the s, urban planning has been complemented by a systematic policy of biotope protection -at first only in the walled city island of West Berlin, but subsequently across the whole of the reunified capital.
In Greening Berlin, Jens Lachmund uses the example of Berlin to examine the scientific and political dynamics that produced this change. After describing a tradition of urban greening in Berlin that began in the late nineteenth century, Lachmund details the practices of urban ecology and nature preservation that emerged in West Berlin after World War II and have continued in post-unification Berlin.
He tells how ecologists and naturalists created an ecological understanding of urban space on which later nature-conservation policy was based. Lachmund argues that scientific change in ecology and the new politics of nature mutually shaped or co-produced each other under locally specific conditions in Berlin.
Greening Berlin: The Co-Production of Science, Politics, and Urban Nature
Following pioneering species, the industrial site will soon become marked by shrubs and later by trees, sometimes turning the place into a kind of forest. It is conceptualized by planners and landscape architects as an iconic post-industrial landscape, and has been turned into a visual genre by photographers and filmmakers epitomizing decay within a romantic or dystopian setting.
