MetamorphoCity – Summer School 2022 at HFT Stuttgart

Date:
-

International Workshop of the Faculty of Architecture and Design
Stuttgart is a car city in both a positive and negative sense. We are proud of the icons of the car industry created by Mercedes and Porsche and at the same time we experience particularly strongly the disadvantages of the car in terms of urban space, health, costs and climate. The cityscape is significantly shaped by the infrastructure created for car use, such as roads, tunnels, parking garages, but other means of transport such as railroads and streetcars also left visible traces in the city.

The vision – a metamorphosis for a people-oriented city
The experimental and playful redesign, the metamorphosis of structural relics of changing and outdated forms of mobility is the focus of the Summer School 2022 at HFT Stuttgart. The vision is to be able to create a resilient living space for people. Seven specific non-places in Stuttgart will become a field of experimentation.
