Cities are growing, and with them the pressure on the use of public spaces is also increasing. Multifunctional and space-efficient settlement, transport, open and green space planning is a central key to more environmental and quality of life in cities.
In the 2/2023 issue of the bdla association magazine, the articles are devoted precisely to the topic of "open space and mobility". The mobility turnaround is rolling on and as a result it is becoming abundantly clear that new thought must be given to the (occupation) use of urban space, which is only available to a limited extent.
Let's use our powers to make these spaces sustainable, open to use and multicoded. Reclaim the streets!
Timo Herrmann, bdla Vice President
In his editorial, bdla Vice President Timo Herrmann states that landscape architects, with their cross-section-oriented and integrating planning, are able to "overlap and reconcile the different use and space requirements and then also design them sustainably and creatively". He calls on politicians and society to demand "sustainable and climate-adapted transport spaces that meet the usage demands of people and society and are not reserved for traffic alone as urban spaces."
The contributions of the focus provide current insights from different perspectives for the handling of spaces in the city.
