Auf dem Weg zur Stadt als Campus represents active, knowledge-based urban development in everyday life. A nationwide network of city developers and universities, together with municipalities, educational and cultural providers, initiatives, property developers and housing associations, as well as economic stakeholders, show how the city can become a campus.
The settings for this are primarily small and medium-sized cities, as well as polycentric regions. Innovative design possibilities, cooperative associations, new business models, reflexive urban communities, and liveable cities are created as part of this process. Those involved cultivate an interplay between “established” and “creative” urban developers, beyond departmental boundaries, bringing together bottom-up and top-down approaches.
