1957-1964: construction in various stages
Schlachtensee Students Village was a donation from the US administration. It was constructed in several stages from 1957 to 1964 by the team work of the architects from Fehling, Pfankuch and Gogel. Constructed according to the American model of a campus, it is one of the most outstanding examples of early post-war modern architecture. The total work of art, including the terrace-shaped residential buildings and the landscape-garden designed by Hermann Mattern, has remained unaltered to this day – and even in its use.
However, the students had very little say in the deeds of the foundation rights from the beginning. The community of flat-mates and students split into smaller groups and circles. In 1964 it finally came to a new decisive concept: the functions of the village leaders were cancelled and more rights were granted to the students self-administration. „New living instead of community ideology“ was the principle.
The 70s: building extensions
The generation conflict and the students movement of '68 was reflected in the village.
Also the sexual revolution made its entry: during a nighttime and stealthy action, both sexes met on the village ground and readily exchanged keys and rooms, so that males and females stopped living separately.
In 1977, 4 blocks of flats were added to the complex of terrace and community buildings. In the so-called community houses, 352 new housing places were created to counteract the anonymity at Berlin universities. Communities formed even amongst the residents of the old buildings and shared flats in the new buildings until the rental of the village was stopped, enabling a completely new form of living within a familiar environment to all residents
The 80s: housing shortage and transformation plans
In the mid-80s planning was geared to demolition and reconstruction. A new idea of the housing units conceived as apartments would bring a radical change to the original concept and eventually a high increase in rents. The students' protest– sometimes also backed up by politicians – did a lot to stop these plans. There was decisive intervention from a group of experts who had won the building contest and who, after a visit to the site, opposed the demolition plans. This event brought about the decision to safeguard the village buildings and gardens as historical landmarks.
The 90s: selling and demolition plans
At the end of 1998 the Students Village came once more under political attack in the Berlin Senate, as the ex-senator of culture Radunski wanted to exchange it well below its value with another plot of land owing to lack of revenue in the senate treasury.
Since then the students self-administration, the friends cycles and the Genossenschaft Studentendorf Berlin Schlachtensee e.G. founded in September 2002 have been protesting against this idea, along with different well-known scientific institutions and associations in Berlin, by historical building preservationists, by the Steglitz-Zehlendorf district and by different Berlin political parties.
Schlachtensee Students Village work community submitted in the spring of 2001 the first offer to the Berlin Senate to purchase and refurbish the property with its 1,061 residential units and continue its present use. After lengthy negotiations, Schlachtensee Students Village work community achieved a successful breakthrough in April 2002 in a follow-up bidding procedure. The village community succeeded in securing the purchase negotiations with the Land Berlin. Later on, Schlachtensee Students Village work community did substantial research into the economic viability of the project and into how this could be financed. The result was the founding of the Genossenschaft Studentendorf Berlin Schlachtensee e.G. on 30th September 2002, which will adopt the responsibility to run and renew the village in the future. in November 2002, it presented the detailed proposal to the Berlin Senate to acquire the site. In March 2003, the Senate decided to keep the gardens and the buildings in the Students Village as historical landmarks and as a residence for students in Berlin and intensified the sale negotiations which should be ratified by the end of the year 2003.
