Citizen participation on innovative urban expansion in Riegel, Germany

On Friday 12 and Saturday 13 October 2018 the local community are invited to a participatory Perspektivenwerkstatt (Charrette) in Riegel, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany to co-design a substantial urban expansion to the north west of the town called ‘Breite III’.

The ‘Breite III’ development is an opportunity for Riegel Council to focus on delivering new and innovative services for the entire community and to shape more communal, integrated and independent living for elderly people in the community. Existing residents are invited to be involved at an early stage, together with a ‘Support Group’ consisting of more than 20 qualified experts from the local area. The Council’s aspiration is to explore new ways for Riegel’s community to develop, and to find innovative housing concepts that will lead to positive solutions to overcome the social and demographic challenges of decades to come.

The process will be facilitated by coaching and facilitation practice Von Zadow International and architects Eble Messerschmidt Partner

Andreas von Zadow is featured in the Lübeck case study in 20/20 Visions. There he co-facilitated a seven day Community Planning Weekend with JTP to create a new vision for the streets and spaces of this world heritage city.
