In the interdisciplinary project Urbanistics, twenty students dealt with the long-term, spatial development of the town of Mühldorf am Inn. The five teams of students from the Master's programmes in Urbanistics and Architecture analysed Mühldorf and the region spatially and in terms of future developments and challenges. The result is the development of alternative futures and the elaboration of spatial strategies, as well as the necessary sequence of measures to be taken by municipal, civil society and private sector stakeholders. The approach takes a processual perspective on the transformation of the built, functional and relational environment.
The five teams focused on different issues. How can urban qualities be created through redensification and new mobility infrastructures? How can the countryside and surrounding areas serve as an experimental field and backbone for resource-conserving and cycle-oriented economic activity? How can inner development contribute to climate adaptation and, at the same time, to a strong green structure outside the inner-city areas? What role does education for young and old play in the development of the city, its mobility and its labor market? How can Mühldorf's urban and street spaces make a stronger contribution to the social interaction and health of Mühldorf's citizens?
