Investment in future

Ideally measured from the perspective of the citizen, urbanized terrain is planned and managed with consideration for social, economic, environmental impact, providing a resilient habitat for existing populations, without compromising the ability of future generations to experience the same. It is an investment in future capability



DEVELOPMENT must grant significant value to local/ rural development.  Assessing the processes of transformation, we have to capture a dynamic picture not static, as transformation is integration of ‘proactive’ and ‘transformative’ approaches.

Rural design policies are altering from standardization towards social innovation, as there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, is inevitably experimental.

Under a leading design ‘umbrella’ the rural region may benefit a good practice with an evolution potential. As the project becomes visible, the approach motivates and becomes the forerunner of the future network of new rural-urban capacity.

A participatory, inclusive, holistic, and action-oriented structural development will serve the adaptation and benefit of communities.


Resource efficiency and social innovation

The issue of social, political and moral reorientation towards ‘green’ production and consumption attracts a wider audience and supporter.

Rural resilience, capacity for effective adaptation*, encourage cooperation and sharing in building a cohesive society.


Social sustainability

Intertwined with the full range of activities that dwellers of different backgrounds and social groups are involved in. the level of peoples’ satisfaction associated with their purpose or well-being.


Towards sustainable food provision

One of the main drivers of city policy for supporting urban agriculture is the maintenance of attractive spaces for recreation of urban citizens.

Agri-environmental, sustainable landscape implies the interaction and mutual benefit among a larger set of people. Urban agriculture will provide short food supply chains. Reduction of negative environmental impacts and the reconnection of consumers and producers, requires collaborated efforts between civil society, policy and market actors.

Motivating collaboration and natural living standards in becoming a sustainable city, the project offers a future lifestyle, which is indeed an urgent need for a better World; targeting ecological perspectives, not only for food but also for health, education and other production issues.

The project will also serve as a promotion factor for a desirable urban world in the rural, supporting discourses as catalysts for changes in policies towards sustainable urban living.  Alternative discourses will affect global policy making over time, and by good samples.


Economic basis

Due to new development, new investments so that employment opportunities and economic uplift should be expected.

The F&B options next to leisure capacities, will attract visitors also for ‘good food’, ‘healthy food’ and ‘local products’, which create a high capacity and stimulate commercial interaction.

The organization of the settlement will provide these opportunities and participatory methods.

Providing opportunities for people, the planning – for long-term success – ensures that it is fit for the future – preserving resources considering tomorrow’s citizens as well as responding to changes in production models and economic circumstances.


Accessibility needs

Rural places and issues assume a specific meaning in times of sharp transformation, in such a masterplan, reorientation, building reconnections and integration of alternative means of transport is important, as private cars may soon be obsolete.

Walkability is increasingly valued for a variety of reasons. Not only does pedestrian transportation reduce congestion and have low environmental impact, it has social and recreational value. Recent research suggests that walking also promotes mental and physical health. The quality of the pedestrian environment is key to encouraging people to choose walking over driving. Six criteria are presented for design of a successful pedestrian network: connectivity; linkage with other modes; fine grained land use patterns; safety; quality of path; and path context.

Low carbon transport infrastructure, including bikes, and sharing cars, or electric vehicle incentives, highlights the adoption of novel solutions into an emerging contemporary habitat which must keep its focus on long-term resilience.


Consent, Coquetry, and Consequences

The tension between industrial structure and the nature in Neuwied today is remarkable, the texture is inspirational.

Industrial elements, wrapped in green, frames the idea of the new development. Although heavy metal residueneeds detoxification brownfield site offers an abundant possibility to rebuild spaces and society, aiming to create something better.

The locus is formed by the inclusion of a social component into sustainability measurement. Dwellers of a land will be the best guardians of the environment, so that a residential-led mix-use development is the key solution for newly developing locale, in solidarity.


Impact of Creative Spaces on Urban Development

The former industrial area – leads to a number of specific challenges, yet, in terms of initiating a new juncture of artsand regeneration may be a ground breaker in the progress of the post-industrial neighborhood. Improving physical (infrastructure) without adequately addressing social resilience illustrates short-term thinking; in dealing with a longer-term future, involvement of culture and arts is essential.


A maker space, initiating a maker movement

Makers and hands on artist may invest in the area for their first home and that will shape the vision, significanceand the future of the novel settlement, focused on future, nature, and making

The project has the potential to be influential and have Germany-wide impact in terms of how such areas are developed and what kind of opportunities they may create. Never underestimating the necessity of digital connectivity, the new rural-urban form will attract younger generation.

With its roots back in time, rising above the traces of a heritage, surrounded with the enlivened heirloom, an exciting place for culture and arts, entertainment, nature and style, the project aims to repair the collectivity of space to combat the serial time of modern labor; and re-build ceremonial and informal public spaces of our era. Overlaying different activities in a contemporary town, the holistic architectural approach of the settlement will enrich the feeling of unity, belongingness and a new order.
