INTERACTING CITY

ARCHITECTURE,URBAN DESIGN

Architectural and urban transformation of a residential area from the 1970s.
For a number of years, Frankfurt/Main has seen an increased population influx accompanied by an increasing demand for housing. As part of the new trend of living in the centre of the city, new residential neighborhoods have already been created downtown. The project interactingCITY shows that the future of living in the conurbation cannot be considered separately from the housing developments on the outskirts. It is precisely on the outskirts that new living space can be created and at the same time existing deficits can be reduced, so that hitherto neglected residential neighborhoods acquire new significance.
