Design survey Roetgen


Design survey for the municipality of Roetgen

After an intensive public and political discussion about several current building projects, which do not fit into the context in terms of urban development and architecture, the municipality of Roetgen commissioned the Institute for Urban Development with a design expertise. The expert report is to analyse the structural design of the localities across the whole area and provide a catalogue of evaluation criteria for areas of varying sensitivity. The aim is to propose suitable measures and planning law instruments on the basis of these evaluation criteria in order to increase the influence of the municipality beyond the approval under building law.
