TUM researchers present the impact of exceptional architecture on the city
On February 12, 2018, the researchers at Technical University of Munich (TUM) revealed their analysis on the impact of exceptional architectural projects. Analysts at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have studied three projects namely Graz, Lucerne, and Wolfsburg to explore whether or not the desired effects such as upgrading the city’s position, materialize.
The Spanish city of Bilbao was set to an economic boom due to the Guggenheim Museum designed by star architect Frank Gehry. This “Bilbao Effect” was found appealing by many urban planners and politicians who desired to better the position of their cities in economic and social terms by developing exceptional architectural projects. The researchers studied the correlation of economic factors, the design of the buildings and its socio-cultural impact. On studying they confirmed that although the projects have positive economic effects, such as expansion of tourism and cultural programs, these effects do not contribute to the city’s updated positioning.
In Graz, the Kunsthaus forms a bridge connecting urban districts which were previously considered as separate and assessed differently in social terms. In Lucerne, the Kultur und Kongresszentrum Lucerne (KKL) has strengthened the confluence of countryside and city. The phaeno had a similar impact on Wolfsburg. The land across the main train station was significant for the city, however it was not properly utilized. Now it has been converted into a science center that keeps the visitors constructively occupied.
These structural changes have proven to be most sustainable effects of the projects. The projects are considered to be exemplary for the engineering and architectural businesses. The scope and opportunities of which are mentioned in Construction Engineering Market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
