From the beginning, the project for Berlin TXL, is declared as a work in progress rather than a finalised design. Our proposal has the capability to adapt during the complex transformation process that will occur during the following years at Tegel. It consists in a flexible system that will fit to the ever changing economical, territorial and architectural processes that are part of large scale projects. Rather than a static and closed design, we propose a system of themes that could be implemented in diverse ways along the site, creating four geographic areas:
1. Surrounding of Terminal A. Purely urban space due to its central position and connection to upcoming university.
2. The Loop. Re-activation of the old infrastructure through program injections surrounded by a natural environment.
3. Green corridors. Three main axis that connect to the surrounding parks and city centre.
4. Wetlands. The water purifying systems are integral element of landscape design that organise the spaces.
