Competition Win for New Urban Quarter in Munich
ingenhoven architects have won the competition to plan a new urban quarter in Munich. By 2027, a new city district for more than 1,000 residents will be built north of Olympic Park on a currently unused, former industrial site, previously occupied by Knorr-Bremse AG. Now, a lively mixture of apartments, shops, and restaurants, two day-care centres, a nursing home, as well as office space is to be arranged around a spacious communal garden.
Christoph Ingenhoven: “Munich’s population is increasing, but its growing needs must be met while while conserving natural resources. Our response as architects should be to develop sustainable concepts for these large, dense, liveable cities. We look forward to planning a vibrant quarter in Munich – a piece of the city for everyone, which meets the highest ecological standards and integrates various forms of greenery, from green roofs and terraces to a large community garden.”
