After analyzing challenges of urban ecology, we will develop options of resolving these with Green Infrastructure and apply them on the redevelopment of a post-industrial urban landscape.

This semester’s case study is going to be the Schalke-Nord area for which the City of Gelsenkirchen currently is preparing the elaboration of an integrated master plan for urban renewal. The knowledge acquired on Green Infrastructure in the first part of the couse will be used to design a GI concept for better living conditions in this area in the second part.
