City of Ludwigsburg, Germany

September 2018 till July 2019

The main goal of the project is to help the City of Ludwigsburg to connect economic growth with alternative mobility services using the city’s cultural identity and technology companies as the main asset. Since the world is changing through technology, connectivity and individuality as main drivers to create prosperous cities.

To make Ludwigsburg a smarter and more sustainable city, a Living Lab environment is suggested for the inner-city to enhance innovation and entrepreneurship while focusing on social benefits. The project identified and studied areas of opportunities for alternative mobility services to support innovative businesses achieving decarbonization of the city. A new integrated street festival experience is proposed, where activities for different generations and audiences are offered. In this seasonal public space experience, various interest groups are attracted through tactical urbanism and creating opportunities for new partnerships.

The five main guiding principles that were developed are: new business, alternative mobility, accessibility, identity and attractiveness for young people. Sustainability is the core of this project, since the main strategies will support environmental friendly solutions and services tailored with a human-centered approach.

What the lecturers say:
»I think it was good for the students to understand the problems and be confronted with different interests and opinions. (…) The municipality got some fresh ideas, some new inputs and a lot of inspirations. I also believe that the study project helped the city to get fresh inputs and inspiration and it pushed somehow the inner processes and their discussion culture. « Cathrin Krumrey Head of Stuttgart Office, sba architektur und städtebau

What the project partners say:
»The main benefit of this collaboration between the City of Ludwigsburg and the SCS Master Programme were the creative and the unconventional ideas created by the student groups (...) It´s always important to have a view beyond the horizon. The co-creation workshop pushed the connection and information exchange between different city departments about current projects. « Charlotte Klose Deputy Director of Climate Change Adaptation, Climate, Energy and European Affairs, City of Ludwigsburg
