Both the planners as well as the future inhabitants entered the participatory experiment with a big portion of trust. The goal was to jointly develop a unique city component for the former barracks on the Munich Domagk grounds. The focus was not only set on the quality of the planning, but furthermore on the process of developing it. What resulted from this process is a complex ensemble consisting of structures that are connected, offering diverse roof gardens and open space. A vibrant place, defining the quality of this urban district by actively contributing with both openness and privacy.
The project combines community living and experimental forms of living. Starting point of this urban configuration was an elevated ring emphasizing the collective. The initial idea of the ring was altered throughout the participatory design process and resulted in five individual, polygonal structures consisting of 138 residential units and a number of various spaces. Bridges connect the five building structures. They are completed by open spaces, representing a three-dimensional, unifying element.
Common yard areas and rooftop gardens, inner courtyards and areas connected to public space combined with private rooftop gardens and terraces offer different levels of public.
Daring to develop concepts, creating identities. Participation is an essential factor in the planning process. In the beginning, the planners had a mediating position. Content and different programs were established during workshops and in working groups. The project won the 2016 German Urban Construction Prize (Deutscher Städtebaupreis) before its final completion. The jury states:
“... One must acknowledge that the planners were so calm from the beginning on, willing to question their own design decisions and willing to leave parts of their expertise with the future inhabitants,Outstanding urban development with top quality architecture can also come from an architect who does not act as a “design guru” but who steps back, in order to take a mediating position and to offer a certain structure while accompanying the planning and construction process ...”
