Revitalization of historic city centers in Lower Silesia and Saxony
The REVIVAL! Autumn School is part of the German-Polish Interreg project "REVIVAL! revitalization of historic city centers in Lower Silesia and Saxony". Together with three scientific institutions and ten municipal partners in Germany and Poland, the project is aiming to strengthen the historic inner city districts, which are not only characterized by a rich architectural heritage, but also by a series of specific challenges arising in this region. The ten project towns are part of a dense network of small and medium sized towns.
Many of the towns, located in the region, struggle with the loss of functions and population, often resulting in vacant residential areas and former business districts, accompanied by social challenges. This poses a risk to the preservation of the built heritage on the one hand. On the other, it adds to the negative image of the individual town and the region as a whole, which in turn aggravate. The REVIVAL! Autumn School aims to encounter these problems in an innovative and creative manner.
In interdisciplinary student groups, you will develop ideas and concepts that have the potential to restore the vitality in the historic city centers. Thereby, the scope of your work will include either individual objects, entire urban districts or the whole region, depending on your field of interest and profession. The final product of your work during the autumn school can be either a design or a conceptual strategy. The results of the work can be presented in different ways: in the form of posters, models, Power Point presentations, short films, room installations or the like. By the end of the week, the elaborated revitalization strategies will be presented to the public and stakeholders. Furthermore, we will pick up the results of the autumn school within the scientific team and among the participating municipalities.
