How can old residential areas and village centres be designed more attractively? How can settlements continue to grow? Urban intensification helps to preserve landscapes by reducing land use. It has to be planned actively, and enabled through the engagement of all stakeholders. A short animated film and three vividly illustrated picture stories offer concrete know-how and show how municipalities can shape urban intensification positively, through a cooperative approach. The findings on the implementation of urban intensification are derived from a number of interdisciplinary projects that the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts conducted together with different Swiss municipalities.
The film and the picture stories are freely available and can be used and distributed as informational material. Both products are accessible through the links on this website.
For further consultation on the implementation of urban intensification further links to partners and publications can be found below.
With the Interdisciplinary Cluster Spatial Development & Social Cohesion (https://sites.hslu.ch/itc/en/spatial-development-and-social-cohesion/) the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts will continue to pursue current questions and issues in society and spatial development.
