Appreciation towards SINAI for providing the following description:


A new urban quarter is being created, connecting the districts of Poppelsdorf, Endenich and Weststadt across an area of 12 hectares. But what kind of urban quality will it offer its future students?We envisage a lively mixed-use urban campus which nevertheless is characterised by gardens and green spaces – an attempt at a truly green urbanity.

The gardening tradition of the Rhine region is closely linked with Poppelsdorf and the Bonn gardens. The new campus design picks up on these traditions.The campus as a “city in the garden”, where students can study and live together.

The campus therefore derives its future identity from the site’s gardening tradition. It develops its own unique profile in competition with the surrounding locations. The Poppelsdorf campus is a multilayered complementary space in which areas of high density are interlaced with places of quiet concentration.

The redevelopment of the area does not erase its gardening tradition, but consciously reactivates it and projects it into the future.
