10,000 people from over 90 countries live in the square mile of Tenever in Bremen, Germany in tower blocks, many of up to 21 floors. Tenever was designed in the 1960s following the concept of ‘urban density’. However, over the following decades crime increased in the area and it became stigmatised as a deprived territory. In order to counteract this, at the turn of the millennium structural changes were initiated, which aimed to encourage social integration and to modernise the estate without gentrification. Nowadays crime prevention methods such as CCTV and security services are used to increase residents’ feeling of security. Despite these measures a stigma is still attached to the postcode 28325.
