LODE-PORT – International Excellence School of Innovative Approaches in Regeneration Planning and Design of Low Density Urbanized Polycentric Regions in Transformation – from 2012 September 22 to October 6 in Dortmund


Internationale Sommerakademie LODE_PORT 2012: Wasserkreuz Castrop-Rauxel

Unter Beteiligung von Partnern aus der Fakultät, Universität und Region veranstaltete das Fachgebiet Städtebau, Stadtgestaltung und Bauleitplanung zwischen dem 22.9. und 5.10.2012 die Internationale Sommerakademie „LODE_PORT – International Excellence School of Innovative Approaches in Regeneration Planning and Design of Low Density Urbanized Polycentric Regions in Transformation“. Das zweiwöchige Programm beinhaltete eine Einführungs- und Projektwoche mit Begegnungen von Akteuren der regionalen und Städtischen Planung, Fachseminaren zum Wohnen, Siedlungsstruktur, regionalen Governance und Kultur, sowie Bearbeitung eines strategischen Konzepts für das Wasserkreuz Emscher/Rhein-Herne-Kanal in Castrop-Rauxel. 22 Studierende aus 12 Ländern legten der Jury in der Endpräsentation fünf beeindruckende Vorschläge zur neuen „Land- & Stadtmarke am Wasserkreuz“ vor, die funktionale Konzepte zur Einfügung in den Emscher Landschaftspark sowie Entwurfsplanung beinhalteten. Unter anderem wurde eine netzförmige Brückenkonstruktion vorgeschlagen, die auf Ebenen der „Schwarzen Emscher“ – heutigen Abwasserkanals, der neuen Emscher und des Schiffkanals Verbindungen schuf. Nach 2017 soll der Wasserkreuz zu einem neuen Freizeit- und Erholungsraum am Wasser umgebaut werden.

In the year 2012, the Summer Academy key topic is the “Compact lifestyle Region – Innovative Planning Tasks”, including the sub-themes of:

  1. Peripherization and Centralization in Large Urbanized Areas
  2. Cultures and Spatial Dynamics of Post-Industrial Landscapes
  3. Growth, Shrinking and Demographic Dynamics in Low Density & Suburban Areas

and a practical design course together with international and regional planners, architects and experts on the theme of redesigning the Emscher Water Cross in Castrop-Rauxel and adjacent area by proposing new  housing areas, redesigning land- and riverscape as well as creating a new regional landmark by an extraordinary architecture or arts for the Ruhr Area at the water cross (see more information in the right bar).

Introduction
The Department of Urban Design and Land Use Planning together with the TU Dortmund University School of Planning and its partners are eager to welcome outstanding Bachelor and Master students in civil urban planning, urban design, engineering, architecture, landscape architecture, planning and design, geography or civil engineering from Europe, Germany and all over the world to create mixed project teams.

The Academy program  offers an integrated introduction to international students into the current regional, urban and landscape planning and governance policy themes structures within the large urbanized region of the Ruhr Area.  The main topics deal with urban design and management policy of physical regeneration of urban and suburban areas with differing dynamics of growth and/or shrinking, brownfield regeneration and the integration of landscape into the urban landscape through its activation for new forms of local urban and suburban life within the last three decades. A special emphasis will be put on planning tools and the management of post-industrial transformation by the International Building Exhibition IBA Emscher Park, which took place in the Ruhr Area, as well as current developments and formats. The students will learn about the state of art of the integrative approach of the scientific and analytic background, a stakeholder-oriented communicative planning and the specific practical urban structure analysis. Furthermore, they will gain an impression of tasks of spatial design and will discuss and develop planning principles for sustainable management of Low Density Urbanized Polycentric Regions.

The Summer Academy is a joint venture of the TU Dortmund University School of Planning, Department of Urban Design, the Emschergenossenschaft,  the ILS  Research Institute for Regional and Urban Development and the DAAD.
