Two projects by Palais Mai are shown in the annual exhibition of the Department of Urban Planning. The neighbourhood on Paul Gerhardt Allee, for which we did the urban design, and the residential development with a day-care centre in Braystraße. The exhibition deals with current positions on living in Munich.
"Munich is attractive and Munich continues to grow. By 2030 at the latest, more than 1.7 million people will live in the city. Managing this growth is a major challenge for the entire urban society. After all, everyone wants to find an affordable flat, be mobile, get a place in a daycare centre, take advantage of leisure activities and even go for a walk alone along the Isar.
However, Munich must not only create more living space, but also provide the corresponding transport and social infrastructure - and that with increasingly scarce space. How can this work? The exhibition shows what the city and its housing associations, but also private actors, are doing to make Munich liveable for everyone in the future. Under the four headings "socially just", "innovative living", "living together well" and "actors + alliances", projects are presented that provide food for thought and point to solutions. It is about new forms of living together, low-cost model projects, questioning standards and regulations, redensification and renovation of existing housing - but also about strategies and programmes to preserve low-cost housing in the city and to create new housing."
