Munich is looking for innovative solutions for a harmonious combination of residential and commercial by transforming a commercial area into a new, dense, urban inner-city quarter. The novel quarter is intended to serve as a pilot project for hybrid, climate-smart urban development and to show new ways in urban development.
The metropolis of Munich, Germany's third largest city, is striving to become climate-neutral by 2035. A major challenge is to reconcile growth pressure and climate aspirations. Munich is trying to meet this goal through inner densification. One of the largest urban development areas in Germany, "Neufreimann", is located in the immediate vicinity of the Europan area.
The competition task is to develop forward-looking ideas for redensifying or redeveloping the existing commercial area to make it a mixed-use, urban, productive and lively urban development. The site as "resilient hybrid urbanism" is to serve as a pilot project for hybrid spaces. The aim is to create a mix of uses for different types of housing and commercial typologies: We are looking for innovative solutions for the coexistence or superimposition of commercial and residential uses.
The commercial and specialist market location is to be further developed in a space-efficient manner and additional mixed uses such as offices and flats are to be created. The goal is a high urban density with a simultaneous high proportion of greenery.
In line with the urban planning idea, a concise open space system is to be created, featuring public, communal and private green spaces as well as pathways with a high quality of stay. The overarching goal is to develop a mixed, lively, sustainable and climate-sensitive neighbourhood.
The planned steps after the competition include the preparation of a development plan and the structural implementation for the project area. However, this requires the approval of local politics or the city council. Subsequently, the planning can be advanced in cooperation with the owner or project developer and the team selected in the competition.
