WS 2018/19

Dauer: 1 Semester


Military has always played an important role in the history of Paderborn. Even today military facilities of the British forces cover important areas in the city and its close surroundings. With the size of 54 hectare the Barker-Barracks on its own, is about the same size as the historic center of Paderborn which is only 2 kilometers away. Since British forces will leave Paderborn till the end of 2019, conversion of these abandoned properties will be a substantial and challenging topic in the future of the city.The areas military usage will be given up after British forces planned withdrawal so next to four other barrack sites, the city of Paderborn is facing major challenges to develop an urban solution for the civilian follow-up use.First creative approaches regarding a quality urban development of Barker areal, should be worked out within the Schlaun competition.
Following subtasks will be available for competition entry:

  • urban planning and landscape design
