Kreative Mitte Oberbillwerder is a dense, diverse and equipped city proposal, inspired by the functioning of natural ecosystems to generate a balanced relationship between water courses, animals and plants with new inhabitants. A transparent and participatory urban model, rich in nuances, that will be able to tackle the most creative classes to generate new economic activities that will make the region more prosperous and sustainable. Kreative Mitte will become a new area of centrality that will re-densify and recover unused land from its immediate surroundings, developing a 3.600 Ha ecosystem. Our urban design is based on sustainability indicators that evaluate the degree of accommodation to the territory of a compact, complex, efficient and cohesive city model.
Our proposal tries to contain the consumption of urban land to increase the proximity between its inhabitants, creating a compact city in order to obtain enough critical mass wich generate a dynamic and vibrant city with the minimum impact on the environment (the urbanized area is reduced to 80 hectares and 40 hectares are dedicated to green areas). It is generated from the reflection on how the transition between nature and city should be, connecting without interruption the densest areas full of activity, going through quiet areas that combine residential use with local commerce, and finally connecting the Blue Park and the agricultural fields.
The system of equipment and public spaces of Kreative Mitte is designed with two objectives: on the one hand to turn it into an attractive district for different types of population and thus to reinforce its social cohesion; on the other hand, create in the district with an adequate metabolism efficiency in the flow of materials, water, energy and energetic self-sufficiency.
The superblock is our unit of measurement and articulation. It is an urban cell of about 400 x 400 m (approximately 3 x 3 blocks) in which the building compactness and population density are optimal to generate a balanced urban network (occupation of land, public space, mobility and services, complexity urban, biodiversity, urban metabolism and social cohesion). Each one will also have its own identity defined by the character of its public spaces and its architecture. It is self-sufficient in metabolic and in a basal regime for minimum consumptions needed, and is provided with the basic equipment necessary to supply its community. It cannot be traversed by road traffic and inside it the speed is limited to 10 km/h, so that approximately 70% of public space is released for the inhabitants and this traffic management drastically reduces both noise and air pollution. The superblock is delimited by a higher level road, traced on an orthogonal mesh, intended for road traffic and public transport. In all the streets in the superblock the space for the pedestrian is generously sized and there are bike lanes.
The superblocks are formed by a combination of urban blocks of different densities (for a large superblock the urban blocks are less dense and vice versa). Thus, we achieve similar population densities in each superblock, which favours social cohesion, consumption and self-management of the community.
