Due to the privatisation of the DB (German Railway Ass.) in the middle of the 1990ies, container and goods stations were relocated to the city`s fringe. As a result about 173 hectares between the Central Station and Pasing, a westerly district of Munich, became available for planning.Therefore the opportunity has been given to the City of Munich to restructure these areas and to implement the new built structures future-oriented into the exisiting urban fabric. The public green and leisure areas, allocated to the residential areas in each case on a decentralised basis and the ecologically priority areas in addition to their leisure and networking function, perform important functions...

Up to the 19th century the river Isar was an untamed natural flowing river. In springtime melting snow from the alpine region and also heavy rainfall after summer thunderstorms reguarly flooded the lower located quarters of the city of Munich. So in the end of the 19th century the river Isar was regulated due to flood protection. The riverbed was transformed into a floodsafe channel made out of concrete with escorting dykes. In 1900 an artificial technical canal was constructed due to energy production. These means caused a massive disturbance of the river's ecology.
The construction of the "Sylvenstein barrage" finally lead to the total loss of character for the river...

The area of the Lene-Voigt-Park covering arround 11 ha is integrated in the project “Eilenburger Bahnhof”, which stretches on a length of 2 km from the city centre to the eastern outskirts of Leipzig. The project was planned to be developed as a green finger within the densely populated eastern part of the city, which is characterised by Gründerzeit style residential areas and a deficiency of public green spaces. The site had been used by the railway until 1970. Key issues of the project were the enhancement of social and ecological aspects to improve the quality of life in the adjacent residential areas. 



A sequence of different green spaces was created,...

The district of Grünau is situated in the west of Leipzig at the urban fringe. It was the third largest modern estate of industrially manufactured blocks of flats in the former GDR. After the political changes there was a deficiency of services, leisure amenities, green spaces and workplaces, because development stopped just after the completion of the houses. The site of the park was originally planned as an area for a road including tram tracks, yet the planning was cancelled and the land has lain fallow for several years. 

The planning started in 1993 and in 1996 the park with a size of 38.000 m2 was opened to the public. Main issues were the improvement of social and...
