Cultural Crossroads

In 2005, Germany’s »other Frankfurt« – Frankfurt (Oder), on the Polish border – was a rapidly shrinking city, hit hard by migration. We were hired by European University Viadrina to try to make a difference. As instructors in their Cultural Management program, we developed a concept that united Polish and German students (a third of the student body is Polish) and emphasized the importance of revitalizing the city center. In this way, a building slated for demolition became a student-run residence hall.
