Does the traffic turnaround offer room for new green?

In our society, personal habits are changing, and forms of mobility are even changing structurally. People stay at home to work and use their bicycles to run errands. People shop online and bring the world into their own four walls. Mobility is changing, into the opposite that was unimaginable until recently: Roads are being dismantled here and there - mostly still experimentally - in favor of individual forms of locomotion.

The public open space then no longer occupied only by road traffic is being developed as an island with comfortable, mostly still temporary quality of stay with greenery. However, new bicycle expressways and mobility hubs that enable the most seamless possible linking of different modes of transportation also require space and are often in competition with the concerns of landscape and nature conservation as well as other desires of society.

The profession of landscape architects is active in an interdisciplinary way with the planning professions to adapt our cities, villages and settlements to these challenges to the built environment and to the requirements of climate change, the energy transition and the resulting change in mobility.

RINN - Hessen


We need concepts for the design and spatial formation of our environment to the landscape, if we want to face the constraints on the new mobility spaces, solutions.How does the mobility of the future, the modern livable city and rural areas look like? What mix of means of transport of all kinds must the open space be able to manage in its design?

The lecture series at the DAM leads us to examples, concepts and visions of experts from the fields of research, landscape architecture, urban and transport planning in the relationship of mobility to open space, which are new, sometimes surprising. It is a plea to face up to the complex task of mobility change in order to redesign and transform open space into an environment worth living in, and to take those involved in planning, those affected, politics and society along with us, as it were.
