We are glad to share some results of our Urban Planning Studio “Resilient urban quarters – strategies for the development of a medium-sized city to overcome housing shortage”, that was held with Ukrainian students last semester.
The city of Drohobych in western Ukraine, which faces housing shortages due to the large number of refugees from war zones, was selected for the project. After a detailed analysis of the city as a whole, a site was selected for the development of an innovative and sustainable urban neighborhood, for which the students developed alternative scenarios and an urban plan. Important initial findings for resilient urban design are: autonomous energy supply, protective structures to protect the population and critical infrastructure, mixed use in the sense of the productive city, decentralized, redundant structures and circular economy principles.
