In the slipstream of Harry Glück, how can the rendezvous of Biotope City and small scale turn into a successful relationship?
In the future, more and more people will live in densely built-up big cities. Yet we cannot imagine an existence without nature. For urban development and architecture, however, this cannot mean renouncing urban density and returning to traditional building methods, but requires new integrative concepts. These also include a purposeful staging of nature, topography and new urban use. The urban planning mission statement for the “Biotope-City” is the result of the interdisciplinary cooperative project development procedure Coca Cola Grounds, which was developed across disciplines. With the subject “Biotope-City”, the procedure formulates a challenging task with ambitious goals, the successful implementation of which requires cross-procedural project development. The result thus forms the starting point for a more in-depth development process, which will now follow the procedure and guide the qualities of the urban development mission statement towards implementation. In accordance with an extended urban planning concept in which sociological, ecological, economic, architectural and urban structural criteria intertwine, the interdisciplinary thematic fields of the urban design are to be concretised step by step until the structural implementation and use of the project.
