The application for the MA program Urban Design – Revitalization of Historic City Districts at BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg is open now. Deadline for applicants from abroad is June 1st.
The development of historic cities in Europe and in the MENA region is until today one of the most important challenges for sustainable urban development. A vivid inner city with a historic core shapes the image and the identity of the city and is the catalyst for developments in the whole town. The benefit of renewal and revitalization of inner city areas is never reduced just to the inhabitants and stakeholders of a certain quarter, but extends into surrounding areas and to the town as a whole. Accordingly, in urban development nothing is more sustainable than a vital inner city. This thesis is correct for both shrinking cities in Germany and metropolitan areas in the MENA region. Rehabilitation processes require an integrated approach, finally fixed in the urban form, and guidelines that guarantee stability and continuity for all further development.
