integrated design studio: sustainable urbanism + landscape architecture
Master – WiSe 2018 (Modul AR 7201/6/7)

In Switzerland, around three quarters of the population live in agglomerations. Important social and economic impulses arise from here. Many agglomerations are less and less able to solve their problems by themselves. One of these agglomerations is the "Regio Frauenfeld" in the northwest of the canton of Thurgau which benefits from its proximity to the economic area of Zurich. 

The focus in this design studio lies on the redensification and urban planning adjustment of the location. Therefor landscape plays a cntral element. We will be active in 3 case studies in the region of Frauenfeld worked on by interdisciplinary groups. The aim of this design laboratory is the design and illustration of exemplary urban development transformations.
