WiSe 20/21 - B3: Integrated project urban planning and landscape

The Bendplatz is located in the north of the city of Aachen in a valley between Königshügel and Lousberg. Except for a seasonal use as a funfair - the "Öcher Bend" - and as a parking lot, it lies fallow the rest of the year. Together with the new Campus West as an extension of the RWTH Aachen University and the Masterplan 2030 for the restructuring of the urban region, the area around the Bendplatz is given a new meaning.

Within the scope of our task, we first had to examine and analyze the Bend and the surrounding areas for various aspects. Using the gained knwoledge as a basis we designed a concept to assign a new function to the Bendplatz, to connect it and its immediate surroundings more intensively with the neighboring areas and to achieve an urban upgrading of the quarter. The design refers in particular to a new interpretation of urban production, urban agriculture, and the concept of "short distances" along with vertical stacking and greater intermixing of uses.

WiSe 20/21 - B3: Integrated project urban planning and landscape

Our Project Bend-Up is the approach of introducing a new player into the existing surrounding structure: start-ups. By sharing the desire for innovation and the power to shape everyday urban life, a start-ups focus has the potenital to reactivate and innovate the city.

A green belt not only constructs the space for communication and interaction, but also reacts to the composition of buildings with different sizes, hights and functions, from co-working hubs to residential blocks and fabrication labs
