The elective modules are based on the main content of the Faculty of Architecture and are reorganized and published every year as required.
Pedestrian traffic contributes to sustainable mobility and climate protection. Environmental pollution is reduced and exercise promotes good health. Pedestrian traffic planning, for a long time a niche topic of urban planning, is therefore more in focus. For example, the city of Aachen is planning ten "premium routes". The seminar analyzes, discusses and prepares possibilities for the planning and design of (green) path connections on the basis of case studies from various German and other European cities. With the case study results, the students design an exhibition on pedestrian mobility in Aachen and implement it.
The content of the seminar deals with strategic open space planning and sustainable mobility planning. Methodical emphasis is placed on the qualitative evaluation of case studies and planning communication and public relations.
The seminar is divided into three phases:
- 1. Qualitative case studies (Germany and Europe) on open space and pedestrian traffic planning
- 2. Conception and realization of an exhibition on pedestrian mobility in Aachen in the European Mobility Week (16.-22.09.19)
- 3. Development of planning recommendations for the city of Aachen
The results will be publicly displayed at the European Mobility Week, 16-22 September.
