Large-Scale Projects In German Cities: Urban Development 1990-2010
Friday, Dec 10, 2010
Engelbert Daldrup and Peter Zlonicky, authors of Large-Scale Projects in German Cities, will discuss how urban development policies have been used over the past 20 years to confront issues ranging from climate change to demographic change. Their presentation will focus on Hamburg and Stuttgart, asking whether efforts there have contributed to the ‘renaissance of the European city.’
They will also examine efforts throughout Germany to tackle these planning, environmental and social issues in a holistic manner. They will address the goals outlined in the Leipzig Charter as well as different approaches to urban development and regeneration, most notably the ‘International Building Exhibitions (IBA).’
Dr. Engelbert Lütke Daldrup has been Managing Partner at AfS Agentur für Stadtentwicklung GmbH in Berlin since 2010. Previously he was appointed State Secretary in the Federal Ministry for Transport, Building and Urban Affairs.
Peter Zlonicky, is a German architect, planner and author, born in Czechoslovakia in 1935. He studied urban design and renewal in Darmstadt, and in 1963 established the Büro für Stadtplanung und Stadtforschung (urban planning and research office) in Darmstadt, Essen and Dortmund, now also in Munich.
