Development Vision Patrick Henry Village – Knowledge Based Urbanism

Internationale Bauausstellung (IBA)

Internationale Bauausstellung stands for International Building Exhibition. From 2012 to 2022, IBA Heidelberg aims to initiate and implement projects and processes related to the knowledge society. Its guiding theme is Wissen | schafft | Stadt (Knowledge | Based | Urbanism). In order to create scenarios for a new, knowledge based neighborhood, the IBA Heidelberg partners with a wide variety of associates in the city and outstanding experts from all over the world and aims to gather first ideas for Patrick Henry Village in Heidelberg.

Opportunity

Create a Development Vision for Patrick Henry Village

Approach

Kick Off the “Knowledge City of Tomorrow”

I was surprised how well everyone received the conversion area and its history. It was soon apparent that the PHV was regarded as an island, which was to act independently and ecologically. At the same time, I found it surprising that a expansion in order to merge with other districts was not necessarily considered a condition.

The team is trying to create an unfinished atmosphere in the AppHaus, so that there is room for unfinished thoughts.

Experience

Bringing the Creative Economy Together

Thanks to the so-called planning phase zero, we were able to find out very early which expectations are being placed on this conversion area. With the help of Design Thinking, we were able to illuminate a variety of different points of view. Many of the participants thought it was great to be introduced to the topic in such a structured way.

The whole project also resulted in a video by IBA Heidelberg

Great design works best when we create it together
