Spatially, Ulm’s poets’ quarter is is disconnected from the adjacent quarters by railway lines and street alignments and by the Kleine Blau. On transforming the district into an urban residential and working quarter, an indeterminate period of development must allowed for, within which residential and use visions can change. Thus the urban design proposal aims at:

  • improving the connection to the surrounding neighbourhoods,
  • forming concise and distinguishable urban spaces,
  • minimizing the emissions and
  • all while limiting the constraints of the development of the plots to a minimum.

The proposed urban framework takes on important cross-quarter links. Precisely, this includes the planned pedestrian bridge as connection to Ulm’s inner city, Goethestraße as the backbone of the southern poets’ quarter, the waterfront of the Kleine Blau and the adjacent part of the Glacispark.

The urban design provides four different urban spaces for the neighbourhood, each of them with its particular characteristics.

Precisely, these are:

  • the inner city axis,
  • a neighbourhood square,
  • the waterfront along the Kleine Blau, and
  • the Glacispark.

In relation to the respective quarter, they facilitate orientation and offer a diverse range of opportunities for stay and activities.
