INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP OF THE FACULTY OF ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
Stuttgart is a car city. 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The experimental and playful redesign, the metamorphosis of structural relics of changing and outdated forms of mobility is the focus of the Summer School 2022 at HFT Stuttgart.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.

THE QUESTIONS AT STAKE
How can we use the spatial and material resources of outdated forms of mobility in a sustainable way to transform the city into a resilient living space? What is the impact of the new mobility on the design of the city, its spaces and its material structures? What forms of mobility serve the development of a sustainable, green and resilient city? How can we turn the car-friendly city into a people-friendly city?
