How Can the Site Contribute to the Productive City?
Neu-Ulm Vorfeld is located in a complex situation near the city centre and has good public transport connections […] Pedestrian are ensured high-quality access to the centre of the city and the southern neighbourhoods of the city by a cycling and pedestrian path axis in 2008. Extensive green areas, used in part as play areas, are supposed to be valorised according to the sensitively understood principle of "densification before external development". The buildings and open spaces of the former primary school and polytechnic owned by the city offer a unique potential for an innovative program of design and uses.
