Against the backdrop of a global competition of metropolises and climate change, finding a city’s specific approach to sustainable metropolitan development is paramount. Economic, political and social challenges in Europe urge for rapid adaptation to changing needs in order to remain competitive, attract well-trained individuals and secure quality of living.

Infrastructural and social development happen at different levels. While infrastructure, public transport and the quality of urban space are internationally visible and contribute greatly to a city’s attractiveness, the challenges of intermodal split and combination of sustainable individual,  neighborhood-level and high-speed transport ask for spacially and urbanistically smart solutions to interchanges, moblity hubs and their complementary programs, both in terms of location and integration with urban space.
