Pompeii, the once flourishing city on the Gulf of Naples, already played an important role in ancient times. With its diverse entertainment offerings and its advanced as well as sustainable infrastructure, Pompeii was already a model for contemporary urban planning at that time.
In the course of the project exercise we will transfer the derived sustainability principles from Pompeii to the current urban developments in Graz-Reininghaus by means of a territorial analysis of Pompeii and the Reininghaus grounds. Thereby, the low-tech approaches for Graz-Reininghaus (Smart City), which are highly effective from Pompeii, will be explored in order to be able to create a specific urban quality. Graz-Reininghaus was previously the largest undeveloped area close to the city center with 54 hectares - on which a new urban district for about 10,000 people is now to be built between 2017 and 2025. 
Our task will be to seek a context-specific concept for Graz-Reininghaus in order to create a social, sustainable and productive neighborhood in the context of the city and the surrounding open spaces.
