The students developed visions for the Alte Mu Impuls-Werk both as cultural protagonist and as a family-friendly place to live and work in Kiel’s city centre. They developed designs and strategies to promote sustainability in architecture, synergies in the cultural landscape, and temporary living and working. Eighteen students from the Master’s in Urban Futures, Architecture, Spatial Strategies, Communication Design, Product Design, and Interface Design work together. The Alte Mu project initiative was included in the Schleswig-Holstein coalition agreement and will be further developed.
