Facelift Neuperlach

Fresh ideas for the redevelopment of a district from the 70s

Sommersemester 2016 - Bachelor Modul 2 Projekt für Landschaftsarchitektur und Landschaftsplanung 2, 2. Semester (5 SWS, 5 ECTS) 

Neuperlach was built on a greenfield site in the 1970s as one of the largest satellite towns in Germany. The new Munich district was intended as a relief for the tense housing situation at the end of the 1950s and was to provide housing for 70,000 new citizens. Today, the district of 55,000 inhabitants has a high percentage of economically weak residents, a high proportion of foreigners and an incipient ageing of the population. It is characterized by an oversized development for motorized individual traffic, an architectural monotony and a lack of urban quality.

Within the framework of landscape architectural designs, a redesign of Theodor Heuss Platz, the green heart of the district, is being examined. With the facelift Neuperlach, reference is to be made not only to ecological effects but above all to social issues.
