Leopold Steiger

Leo studied urban and regional planning and urban design in Cottbus, Berlin and Santiago de Chile. He is a designer through and through and is currently working for a Berlin project developer on the realization of a campus in Duisburg. He prefers to do guided tours with groups who hardly know Berlin. Through the visitor’s eye, he can experience his hometown anew. Leo lives in Prenzlauer Berg, where he also grew up. He likes the mixture of crazy and snooty neighbours in his neighbourhood Helmholtzkiez and the charm of “Swabylon” (Swabians flocked to Prenzaler Berg in the early 2000s) prejudices and constantly changing realities.
