WS 2019/20

Term: 1 Semester

RWTHonline has now activated the registration procedure for the B3 Stadt und Landschaft project. Please register there in groups of four or five for the project or send an e-mail to


The urban project is the joint exercise of the Chair of Urban Planning, the Chair of Planning Theory and Urban Development and the Chair of Landscape Architecture in the module "Project B3". Building on the accompanying lectures, in which initial knowledge about the city, its development, planning and design is imparted, you will deepen the acquired knowledge in a practice-oriented exercise and test urban planning working methods and methods.

As part of the integrated project City and Landscape, you will develop ideas and measures for the development of a new quarter in the industrial area Wurmbenden and design a suitable urban structure based on the developed concept.

The task is to present the spatial and functional connections and to develop an urban framework concept for the extended viewing area in the surroundings of the plan area. For the narrower planning area, an urban development draft is to be worked out on the basis of the framework concept.

The work is carried out in three phases:

  • Analysis
  • Mission statement / framework concept
  • Deepening / Urban design.

Each work phase starts with an introductory event, which is introduced by an "input". In the following events there will be supervision, intermediate colloquia and revisions.

Work is done together - in a fixed rhythm - on Tuesdays in the respective work rooms or in the chair.
