University Buildings as Pioneers of Urban Development
Knowledge is becoming increasingly important as a "new raw material" for working and living in cities. Universities and research institutions are becoming magnets for talent, while at the same time promoting creativity and innovation. They play a crucial role as a location factor and can act as an engine for urban development. Many cities are using this insight when drawing up strategic concepts to strengthen the contribution of universities to the city's identity. The challenges this implies spatially will be demonstrated using various examples (RWTH Aachen, University of Kassel, ETH Zurich, etc.).
