Binzwangen – What will this village look like in 30 years? Along with the residents of Binzwangen, the future of the this place was discussed within a workshop. Basis of this workshop was an investigation in the form of a walk through the village and nummerous conversations with residents.
The students then developed diverse scenarios: possible developement paths, that this village could follow - all dependent on the change within the next few years.
The link between the methods of social research and urban planning led to new approaches and ideas for this place. Through sketches and illustrations these were clarified, and through impromptu designs these were demonstrated. New living forms as living clusters, new means of mobility and the generation of energy were assessed.
