Nature Based Solutions in the context of Data-Driven Urbanism

Leider ist der Eintrag nur auf Amerikanisches Englisch verfügbar.

Last Week, Thomas Stellmach presented in the Annual National Planning Conference Highlights in Chengdu the presentation Nature-Based Solutions in the context of Data-Driven Urbanism invited by Isocarp. We parted from two main premises:

Climate hazards around the world during 2021

With all its effects, climate change is so familiar, from flooding, heat waves, melting polar caps caused by the man-made transformation of our surroundings. It has become the number one issue of our time. While we face this challenge, we see another big change happening, the shift towards big data and its automated analysis, affecting all realms of our life.

What does this mean for sustainable urban development?

„The City as a Renewable resource“ TSPA’s intervention in the Masterclass at the University of Venice

Last Friday March 26th, Thomas Stellmach took part of the discussion in the Masterclass The City as a Renewable Resource in the session Project, organised by the University of Venice.

After the presentations by Paola Viganò and Günter Vogt, Thomas Stellmach shared the virtual floor with the speakers, Aristide Athanassiadis and Margherita Manfra for a discussion.

The Masterclass explored the unsustainable and unfeasible models of urban growth, expansion and consumption contrasted with a paradigm shift that proposes the role of urban space as a renewable resource. It interprets the city-territory as a stratification of actions, practices, projects and policies.

Thomas Stellmach started by presenting the bridge between global challenges, such as rapid population growth, resource consumption and climate change, and the added layer of „the unexpected“ when it comes to city planning. Exemplifying with his work together with UN-Habitat, he concluded that we are still looking at the city as an answer to complex social problems. He considered that the nuance is to shape the city in a way that it becomes renewable is the way urbanisation is developed.

Natur geht vor im Blankenburger Süden!

Seit dieser Woche sind die Ergebnisse der Rahmenplan Entwicklung für den Blankenburger Süden auf der Website der Berliner Senatsverwaltung für Stadtentwicklung und Wohnen für die Öffentlichkeit sichtbar.

Der Entwurf „Stadt machen fürs 21. und 22. Jahrhundert“ von TSPA zusammen mit dem Landschaftsarchitektur Büro B+B steht neben drei andren Entwürfen als „Testentwurf Nummer 4“ der Bevölkerung wirklich zum „Test“ zur Verfügung. Durch eine online Umfrage und einer Beteiligungsplattform können uns Fragen gestellte werden, Kommentare hinterlassen werden und auch für unseren Entwurf eine Stimme abgegeben werden.
