Project description The fate of housing built in the 1950s to the 1970s is one of the focal points of the research and activities engaged in by the Wüstenrot Stiftung. The charitable foundation has already used a series of research projects to examine the core tasks and challenges that accompany housing dating back to that period, and their findings have in turn led to the identification of potential courses of action aimed at sustainable future development on estates characterized by either apartment buildings or detached and semi-detached homes. Set to run from 2013 to 2016, this new research project will see HFT Stuttgart’s Centre for Sustainable Urban Development analyze specific examples of urban regeneration strategies involving estates of detached and semi-detached houses. Their analysis will be based on the findings of previous research in this field. The aim of the research project is to identify and analyze case studies from throughout Germany in which a process of classification or modification has already occurred. The project will not only contribute to a scientifically supervised, broad-based exchange of knowledge and experience in the field of complex urban redevelopment and regeneration processes on estates of detached houses built in the 1950s to the 1970s, but also yield a tried-and-trusted set of practical measures and strategies.
