Retrofitting

Sustainable urban district development

How can parking spaces in the neighbourhood be used better and more flexibly?

E-Mobility, Car-Sharing and sustainable energy supply - these are the challenges that urban planning must face today in order to make our cities fit for the future. However, rigid structures that stand in the way of the further development of a neighbourhood are often maintained.

Challenge description

The decisions taken in urban planning and the resulting land use and development plans often follow outdated urban planning principles. In many cities, for example, proof of one car parking space per housing unit is still required. What happens to these areas if the requirements in our neighbourhoods are completely different after the switch to e-mobility and car and bike sharing?

Challenge vision

How can the use of parking areas be adapted to the changing requirements of society and the neighbourhood in the areas of mobility, energy supply and social services? What can a concept for the flexible use of parking spaces look like and how can it be implemented in planning law?

A redesigned parking space should be, for example:

  • gradually adapted to the needs of users in the neighbourhood,
  • modular, based on the technological development of the vehicles and types of mobility,
  • the coupling point of a sustainable, decentralised energy supply for the neighbourhood,
  • an area for alternative, social use.

The challenge is hosted by ACMS Architekten GmbH.
