Cem Arat and Markus Weismann will be speakers at “Research goes Public – Building research in practical exchange”, an event organized by the Fraunhofer Information Center for Space and Building IRB, on May 19, 2021, 4-5:30 p.m., and will present the concept for Stuttgart´s “Maker City”. Research goes Public is part of the IBA’27 network.

The so-called “Maker City” is one of the four areas of their 2019 winning design for the Rosenstein international urban planning competition developed by asp Architekten and Koeber Landschaftsarchitektur GmbH. Since July 2020, the area around Stuttgart’s Wagenhallen (former train depot) has been one of the 14 IBA’27 projects. In a kind of “urban laboratory”, new, productive-creative concepts for the mixed-use city are to be realized here.
