URBAN DESIGN

The area Böckinger Straße has a lot of hidden potential. It’s located at the outskirts of Zuffenhausen-Rot, a socially deprived district of Stuttgart. In the post-war years new homes for »Heimatvertriebene« (expellees) and »Heimkehrer« (those who returned from the Second World War) had been built. This character is visible until today in the typology and in the resident structure of the district. 

There are a lot of questions to find an innovative and experimental approach for the urban design: How can we deal with the urban fringe? Should we build dense and high buildings or should we adapt to the 1 to 3 story buildings in the neighbourhood? How can we integrate the area into the existing settlement structure, which new typology do we need? What might be the next steps, and how could residents contribute to the new quarter? Who will life there in the future? How will they live together, and in which typology? If private dwelling is reduced to a minimum, how the public spaces, the common rooms and areas have to look like?
