 Urs Kohlbrenner was largely responsible for Hellersdorf’s Neighbourhood Concept (Quartierskonzept) and for its redevelopment programm which began in 1992 for when he lured Lucien Kroll to Berlin. After an apprenticeship as a draftsman in Basel and a degree in architecture at HBK Berlin (today University of the Arts, UdK) and the Technical University Berlin, Urs Kohlbrenner worked as a freelance urban planner and architect in Berlin from 1972. Between 1972 and 2012 he was responsible for more than 500 projects as owner of the Planungsgemeinschaft Hannes Dubach/Urs Kohlbrenner office where he also supervised the Blockkonzepte during the 1984/87 Altbau-IBA (International Building Exhibition). When the office became a cooperative run by its employees as Planungsgemeinschaft Kohlbrenner eG, he worked on project-based collaborations and undertook teaching assignments and guest professorships at GH Kassel and UdK. During his 12 years at the Institute for Urban and Regional Planning at TU Berlin, Urs Kohlbrenner became an Honorary Professor.
