Stuttgart is a car city in both a positive and negative sense. We are proud of the icons of the car industry created by Mercedes and Porsche and at the same time we experience particularly strongly the disadvantages of the car in terms of urban space, health, costs and climate.
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The experimental and playful redesign, the metamorphosis of structural relics of changing and outdated forms of mobility is the focus of the Summer School 2022 at HFT Stuttgart.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.

Course leader

Mr. Harald Roser

Target group

Students of Architecture, Infrastructure Management, Interior Architecture, ClimateEngineering, Smart City Solutions, Urban Planning and all other courses related to the topic

Course aim

Non-places become a field of experimentation
Seven specific non-places in Stuttgart will become a field of experimentation. Through analysis, rethinking and playful, provisional redesigning, the participants will search for answers to these questions in mixed, small groups. They will use recyclable and upcyclable materials such as scaffolding, tents, wooden slats, furniture and paint.
The results of the workshop will be made visible at the end in a central pavilion on the campus of HFT Stuttgart.
