Urbane Qualitäten

Wit­hin the frame­work of the natio­nal rese­arch pro­ject ent­it­led ‘NFP 65: New Urban Qua­li­ty’, the ‘Urban Poten­ti­al and Stra­te­gies in Metro­po­li­tan Ter­ri­to­ries’ pro­ject has deve­lo­ped a con­cept focus­sing on the pro­mo­ti­on of urban qua­li­ties in plan­ning and con­struc­tion pro­ces­ses. Based on empi­ri­cal case stu­dies in the metro­po­li­tan regi­on of Zurich, the rese­arch team has estab­lished a selec­tion of rele­vant urban qua­li­ties in con­tem­pora­ry urban regi­ons: cen­tra­li­ty, diver­si­ty, inter­ac­tion, acces­si­bi­li­ty, adap­ta­bi­li­ty and appro­pria­ti­on. The manu­al pro­vi­des a func­tio­n­al set of instru­ments that faci­li­ta­te the stra­te­gic pro­mo­ti­on of the­se qua­li­ties. It is addres­sed to plan­ners, archi­tec­ts, stu­dents and any­bo­dy who pre­fers impro­ved qua­li­ty over den­si­ty per hec­ta­re in the cur­rent urban plan­ning and spa­ti­al deve­lop­ment deba­te.
The estab­lished urban qua­li­ties ser­ve as a basis for the deve­lop­ment of pro­files of urban situa­ti­ons. The ‘Urban Pro­fi­le’ – an instru­ment that inte­gra­tes the urban design and soci­al sci­ence aspec­ts of urban qua­li­ties – allows for ana­ly­sis and typi­fi­ca­ti­on of urban situa­ti­ons, ther­e­by faci­li­ta­ting com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on in urban plan­ning and design pro­ces­ses and pro­mo­ting the iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on and loca­ti­on of urban defi­cits and poten­ti­als. The manu­al was published by Hoch­pa­terre Ver­lag in late sum­mer 2016.
