project description

The urban area “Rechtes Weserufer” of the city of Minden is characterized by different spatial structures, building typologies and uses. In the district, which is historically shaped by different times, people live, work, work creatively and, last but not least, carry out socio-cultural integration work. Mittelland canal, Weser and floodplains, train station, three historical forts as well as an old Weser port and a former goods station form the urban spatial and urban planning fixed points. The right bank of the Weser, around the turn of the century the “coal bank of the city” and at that time the place of residence of the industrial workers, still has a negative image today. In parts of the area, a downward social spiral has emerged that needs to be specifically addressed.

Due to the urban relevance of the area, it was necessary to initiate a holistic renewal process. The need for action was urban renewal and structural densification, the development of a lively district center, a functional upgrading of the urban space and a consistent link with the qualities of the natural and landscape space of the Weser floodplains. The extensive open space potential of the floodplains, the Weser and the central location of the study area offer great opportunities to develop the “right bank of the Weser” into a sustainable urban area.

For this purpose, development goals were defined under the motto “In the flow and in the middle – urban : innovative : real” and a total of 43 concrete measures were formulated and planned in project data sheets. A development and framework plan shows where the development should lead. The concept was created in cooperation with the A24 Landschaft office in Berlin.
