Urbanizing the Periphery. Munich

The study "periphery | landscape" identifies potentials and gives strategic advise for a long-term spatial development of the north-eastern periphery of Munich. The team was asked to work out a strategy for the development of an area of about 350 ha and to specify their findings for a sample site of around 150 ha. The approach is based on the following steps: The potentials of the area are recognized in a profound analysis and brought together in a synthesis map (A). Challenges concerning a sustainable development in the periphery were discussed. They led the team to five strategies (B). These strategies provide a framework for a long-term spatial development. They were developed in a close interplay with the design of a spatial vision for the North-East of Munich (C). The spatial vision shows ideas for the future open spaces and new developments. The team invented a set of typologies of peripher settlement. The typologies focus on specific combinations of settlement and open space (D). A design for the sample site (E) is differentiated with stories, best-practice-examples and development options in order to illustrate everyday life of future inhabitants.
