Kaye Geipel writes about the productive city in the new BAUWELT!
"Die gemischte Stadt wird Fata Morgana bleiben, wenn sich das in Jahrzehnten eingeübte Bild eines störungsfreien Stadtlebens nicht zur Produktion hin öffnet – so die kontroverse These des letzten Bauwelt-Kongresses. Auch der neue Europan-Wettbewerb stürzt sich jetzt in diese Auseinandersetzung um ein neues Stadtverständnis – und riskiert Streit."

Die Produktive Stadt setzt einen besonderen Schwerpunkt auf eine nachhaltige Entwicklung der Städte durch gemischt genutzte Quartiere, alternative Energie- und hybride Nutzungskonzepte, die dem Bedürfnis der Menschen nach einer Stadt der kurzen Wege entspricht und die eine Vielfalt von Lebensweisen, Kulturen und Nutzungen ermöglicht.
