A Borough for Wiesbaden

AA Visiting School Pjöngjang

The aim is to form a borough, in which it's community creates the civic space through social, economical, cultural and political discourse. Due to urban migration, cities keep on expanding. It is expected that 80% of the worlds population is living in cities by 2050. Due to such rapid demands of dwellings, new districts, mostly huge mono-living-developments are being inserted. In Wiesbaden too, a new district is to be built – yet another monocenter? Can we learn from rural structures and architectural and programmatic ties of inner cities, in order to think a self-sufficient, but territorially integrated community, which in the end engages a physical and social design of the civic space?

Students of this Master design course are encouraged to choose the correlating seminar “Mapping the mobility network of inner Wiesbaden”.
