Re-Use: Avoiding brownfield sites
In a joint event of the TU Wien, ecoplus - Lower Austria's business agency, the municipality of Wilhelmsburg, Laufen Austria AG and the BMK brownfields dialogue, the re-use of the Laufen company site was discussed on the basis of student projects.
For decades, the Laufen site was used for the production of bathroom ceramics. Due to operational restructuring in 2020, the production site was downsized in Wilhelmsburg and an area of six hectares - in the centre of Wilhelmsburg - is now available for new uses.
30 urban planning designs were developed by the Bachelor's and Master's students (course supervision by the research units Urban Planning and Design, Landscape Architecture and Landscape Planning and Transport System Planning - MOVE) at the site. There was great interest in the ideas: the event was attended by more than 90 curious participants.
