To find out, two sites in Rotterdam and Hamburg will be analysed by teams of students. Often these areas perform multiple functions: from tourist hotspots to local marketplace, to favourite hang-out spot, to routes to work/transportation nodes. How to integrate all these diverse uses and wishes of various stakeholders involved is a big challenge, especially taking into account the fact that the solution should also be resilient and climate-proof. If done correctly, a successful redesign can greatly enhance the quality and usefulness of the areas for all involved parties. A real opportunity here to make an impact on people’s daily lives.
Topics the students will have to take into consideration:
Urban heating, tourism, public transport, local inhabitants, marketplace area, schools, noise, quality of living, urban planning, and biodiversity.
General focus in this project:
- Urban planning
- Facility management
- Civil engineering
- Real estate and housing management
- Building engineering
