BlueGreenStreets – Multifunctional streetscape design in urban districts

Development of resource-efficient streetscapes for the cities of the future

Green spaces and open water areas within cities do not only contribute significantly to the quality of life. In growing cities, the risk of flooding is increasing due to urban development. The task of future development is therefore to develop different land uses side by side and also to combine them. Urban greenery and urban flood protection need to be integrated into multifunctional streetscapes.

Objectives and procedure
The project aims to investigate, evaluate and improve the effectiveness of planning instruments and regulations concerning urban green infrastructure, urban water management, the repair of roads and canals, and streets and open spaces. Streetscapes should be designed to be sustainable and also multifunctional, serving the various needs of urban districts.

Expected results and transfer
To increase resource efficiency in growing districts, planning tools are developed and tested on-site, in cooperation with key urban stakeholders. The transferability to other municipalities is ensured by the creation of model solutions to integrate greenery into the streetscape.
