At the Centre for Sustainable Urban Development (ZNS), Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christina Simon-Philipp and her colleagues have been conducting applied research in the fields of urban planning, urban development and urban renewal for more than ten years. In addition to fundamental questions of spatial development, specific planning questions in connection with certain players or subspaces are also adressed.
In order to carry out practical research and find problem-oriented solutions, the Centre for Sustainable Urban Development works closely with various national and international players, for example in real laboratories. Residents, regional project or cooperation partners such as the Verband Region Stuttgart, its cities and municipalities or the Wüstenrot Foundation conceive, design or accompany the research processes together with the members of the ZNS.
The research projects of the ZNS are closely linked to the teaching modules and scientific work in the bachelor's and master's programmes in architecture, urban planning and infrastructure management at the HFT Stuttgart. Through explicit teaching research projects, students can actively participate in shaping the research projects.
Together with six other competence centres at the HFT Stuttgart, the ZNS is also active in the research area of energy-efficient buildings and sustainable urban development.
One part of the project M4_LAB, funded by the BMBF within the framework of the "Innovative Hochschule" Initiative, is concerned with the question of how cooperative spatial development can be implemented in districts and thus enable social interaction and activation of public spaces. To this end, tools for cooperative development are being developed and tested in a continuous series of seminars.
In small real-life experiments, the project works together with students and local players on site and further develops concepts in iterative loops.
The dissertation deals with the question of how to identify practice-relevant problem situations and orientation strategies of people with dementia. Using co-creative methods, it shows first draft-based solution approaches for the longest possible independent life of dementia sufferers in the city. The basis for the dissertation is the educational research project "WOHNEN STADT DEMENZ", which was carried out in cooperation with the Wüstenrot Foundation from 2016-2019.
