In Design 2, the focus of knowledge transfer is on the mediation of urban and landscape structural elements and levels, as well as their content-related interactions. The students will be introduced to the analysis and interpretation of urban tissue in different scales and the understanding of its context at the location. The spatial production of a city on an open plot in an inner-city location will be tested. The relation to and handling of neighbouring urban structures leads from the content analysis to the urban strategy development to the urban design. The module focuses on the adequate form of presentation and communication of the respective discipline-related urban planning contents.

Design 2 / town planning

The city of Graz is currently experiencing the strongest percentage population growth of all Austrian cities and will continue to do so in the future. This growth can no longer take place on greenfield sites, also for ecological reasons. The focus is therefore increasingly on areas that appear suitable for more intensive and higher-quality use. The area south of the Citypark along the Lazarettgürtel represents a special potential here - the current uses (car park, industry, commerce and partly residential) lack a spatial, future-oriented model.
Following the vision of an inclusive growing city, we will develop sustainable urban designs for this area that provide for a high-quality, well-connected urban quarter with a suitable mix of uses and an adequate supply of green space.
Based on urban structural considerations, we will develop building volumes and their mix of uses as well as development on a scale of 1:1000, with a special focus on the public space and its interconnectedness. Subsequently, we will elaborate parts of the design in more detail at different scales.
