Internationale Bauausstellung in Brandenburg(IBA)

  • This conservation project begun in 2000 is scheduled to be

  • completed by 2010. The exhibition is a futuristic vision for

  • this mining region.

  • Through 24 exemplary projects, IBA is facilitating economic,

  • creative and ecological support for required environmental

  • renovation. 


  • The IBA logo “see” refers to the Lusatian Lake Land, which is being

  • created here (See = German for “lake” or “sea”) and, at the same time, invites you to "see" the region with new eyes.

Region: Cottbus

July 2006, I had the opportunity to visit this ecologically devastated

region in Lusatia near Cottbus, on the eastern border of Germany.


Slide4 l.jpg

Applied Sciences University in Potsdam Design Department faculty

made the fieldtrip down to the south of Brandenburg. We were

involved with a promotional exhibition titled, “Land in Motion.”


Slide5 l.jpg

  • My job: Shoot 200 photographs giving perspectives and personal visions

  • of what I saw and experienced concerning this damaged environment.

  • Work in progress: An interpretive documentary for a book.


Slide6 l.jpg

Dr. Dietmar Woidke, Brandenburg's Minister for the

Environment, opened the "Energy Region of Lusatia"

exhibition on global climate change and regional

structural change in Lusatia.

“Lusatia has the capacity to become the laboratory

for new environmental technologies which will be

marketed from here. Today we are opening the first

section of this future laboratory.”

The rehabilitation work in progress is supported by the

mining companies, the government and reunified Germany.

  • The Nuts

  • and Bolts

  • F-60s are the largest machines in the world and have effectively destroyed all life in this region due to 150 years of lignite strip mining.


F 60 stats l.jpg

F-60 STATS:

  • Some facts about the giant

  • Year of manufacture: 1989 – 1991

  • Total length: 502 m (1,647 f)

  • Width: 14 - 204 m (46 – 669 f)

  • Height: up to 80 m (262 f)

  • Weight:13,500 t

  • (1m = about 3f)

Slide19 l.jpg

The results left a deserted, unearthly landscape,

resembling the moon’s surface that stretches for miles.


Slide20 l.jpg

The devastation led not only to the destruction of the lands but also

the infrastructure, culture and population of the Lusatia (Lausitz) region.


Slide21 l.jpg

The finished

outcomes will include beautiful landscaping

appropriate for recreational facilities such as parks and campgrounds.


Slide22 l.jpg

It will feature 8 “landscape islands” containing model-like projects.


Slide23 l.jpg

Total flooding

is scheduled

from 2020 to 2030.


Slide24 l.jpg

The most surprising solution to me was the plan to fill the

deep craters dug by the F-60s with water, creating the lakes.


Slide25 l.jpg

Here is an example of contemporary housing floating on the water with docks and sailboat slips.


Slide26 l.jpg

  • Restoration of this region,

  • once the energy center

  • of the former GDR, involves ecological stability, beautiful landscaping, residences and recreational facilities such as parks, lakes and campgrounds.

  • The conservation techniques are highly innovative and represent

  • a model for future restorations in other countries.


Slide27 l.jpg

  • Currently, locations in Italy and Poland are

  • also partners with this restructuring of cultural landscapes (REKULA).

  • The IBA continues to build bridges across national and international borders.
