Abstract The term perforation refers to the dissolution of urban structures as a result of the successive and unplanned emergence of brownfields due to shrinkage. The debate on perforation in Eastern Germany is located within the shift of planning paradigms - from cautious urban regeneration to urban restructuring - that occurred at the turn of the millennium. This debate on the perforated city, initiated by the city of Leipzig, marked precisely the renunciation of the goal of preservation and restoration of historic housing stock in favor of passive neglect and active demolition. It was an attempt to react openly and flexibly to a situation of permanent weak demand and ongoing disinvestment. One can identify three different uses of the term perforation by the city of Leipzig during the initial stage of urban restructuring: (1) as a pictographic description of situations and ongoing processes; (2) as a field of experiments; and (3) as a research approach. During urban restructuring in Leipzig, perforation was treated as a flexible concept but not elaborated as a planning model. The term perforation is used as a description and a metaphor within the literature but does not play a role in planning practice, neither in Leipzig nor in any other German city.
