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.
Taking into account the Cradle to Cradle philosophy, the Lune Delta forms an economic structure that provides design, ecological and social contribution even after the end of its period of use. The sustainable commercial area is based on the following principles: 1. integral: The structure fits into existing overall structures, arises and also benefits from them. 2. demand-oriented: Different requirements are covered by the initial cluster. The system of ditches forms its own ecosystem and areas for Commons are implemented. 3. diverse: Open space systems and the special sector mix resolve the contradiction between commercial use and landscape and contribute to creative and social diversity. 4.circular: Buildings, open space and infrastructures operate as material cycles. They support technical or biosphere principles and adapt functionally and in design. 5. sustainable: The use of renewable energies is a hybrid system, which is locally, infrastructurally and formally connected. 6. orchestated: The cooperative Development Company Lune-Delta controls processes, ensures synergies and promotes communication.
Phase Nachhaltigkeit is organized by the DGNB (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen) and the Bundesarchitektenkammer. The aim of the intiative is to transform the current building culture to make sustainable building the new normal. By signing the declaration, CITYFÖRSTER becomes part of the „Phase Nachhaltigkeit", and demonstrates their solidarity.
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.

The Bonn Region consists of the City of Bonn, Rhein Sieg District and Ahrweiler District with more than 1.1 million inhabitants. The Bonn Region is one of the fastest growing locations for business and science in Germany. Important factors in favor of investing in Bonn are a mix of global players and vital medium-sized companies in dynamic and future oriented sectors. The Bonn Region presents its future developments and important individual projects in the fields of office, residential, retail, tourism, and hotels.
Cityfoerster is looking forward to be part of this exhibition with our Masterplan design about the development of the new federal quarter of Bonn.

The Guggenheim will access the richness of Nordic culture and open a door towards the East of Europe. Helsinki gets the opportunity to integrate a site with landmark potentials into the heart of the City: Reachable for pedestrians from Eteläesplanadi, adjacent to Tahititornin Vuori Park, and neighboring Olympia Terminal, the site will be a new Connecter within the city. The urban design introduces a plinth to meet the challenges and foster the potentials of the site: It connects the park with the water front via a pedestrian bridge crossing Laivasillankatu. Pedestrians from Eteläesplanadi are directed towards the site via a stage and a grand ramp with seating – here the exhibition begins! A civic space of great quality for tourists and residents to gather and socialize. At the same time the plinth covers the port vehicles access, ensuring undisturbed port operations. Above the Plinth and the Forum "flys" a wooden box. Its height fits into the surroundings and allows great views. The slim shape and horizontal gesture enhances the characteristic of the site at the water front: a subtle yet genuine new element of Helsinki's cityscape.
