This is also true for architecture and urban planning, if we understand both as parts of systems. We think of designing, planning, and building as team work enabling the best ideas to prevail. For this reason CITYFÖRSTER works as a partnership supported by an interdisciplinary network. With you we develop better solutions for working and learning, housing and living.
The new "District Landscape Dietenbach" sets high standards for its completeness and its autonomy. It does not see itself as a mere settlement on the outskirts, but as a densification of diverse spatial and urban elements such as districts, boulevard, center, neighborhoods, junctions, landscape as well as building structures and programs - condensed and superimposed - they merge to a vibrant district, which is independent in his structure and at the same time integrated into the larger urban context and landscape. Four individual districts are oriented towards two large open spaces that flow through the new district as well as to the large landscape scenery of Freiburg. In addition to the small-scale road network, the boulevard connects the districts. Here you will find a variety of divers usable squares, which stand for urban openness and provide orientation. A new center serves as a local supply center and common reference point with symbolic centrality.
At this year's Expo Real, the Lune Delta industrial estate was awarded the German Sustainable Building Council's (DGNB) pre-certificate with the highest award level (platinum) for its sustainable development planning.
In line with the Cradle to Cradle philosophy, the Lune Delta forms an economic structure that brings design, ecological and social added value even after the end of its useful life.

Rotterdam, 25 September 2019 - CITYFÖRSTER, in collaboration with KCAP, has won the competition to design a new cultural district for Bratislava. The ambitious project includes a state-of-the-art concert and congress venue which will become a new landmark for the city
"... In the front the Baltic Sea, in the back the Friedrichstraße ..." In the EuroCity Berlin one can come close to this ideal. The design combines an urban block typology with a distinctively shaped bar - " the Wolkenbügel". Its shape is characterized by a large void. This wide passage connects the block via the neighborhood square with the water front and at the same time the waterfront with the city. The void forms a partially covered urban stage for public uses such as weekly market, game or sport and thus a lively place along the promenade. The block is orientated to a central courtyard, which is connected to the neighborhood square. The block is divided into ten different houses whose building height of seven floors decreases stepwise to five. All roofs are used as terraces. According to the different housing typologies and sizes the widths of the houses vary as well. The houses are also distinguished in terms of facade rhythm and materiality.
