The „Vital Quarter" contains not only a strategy for the planning area, but rather for the hole downtown. General statements of relation between downtown and riverside, forms of use, hierarchization and meaning of squares and streets offer a long-term focussed development of the downwon. The existing spaciousness of the building and space structure is the base of a vital urban diversity with a significant regional focus.
The profiling of the inner-city subspaces shows developments of individual areas and the hole downtown. The support of the physical and programmatical connection between the planning territory and the riverside lets the „Vital Quarter" arise.
The social trend of „health" (sports, recovery, work-life-balance, nutrition) is combined in the „Vital Quarter" with the qualities and potentials of the riverside (allotments, tracking paths), which forms the quarter green and vital.
