Funding scheme:IP - Integrated Project
The POLYCITY proposal focuses on large-scale urban developments where living and working areas are integrated to result in sustainable city quarters with short distances and low transport energy consumption. The project treats different aspects of urban conversion: new constructions on sites with little development at the city edges of Barcelona, conversion of an old city quarter in Torino and a mixture of rehabilitation and new construction on a large military ground near Stuttgart.
Only large urban conversion sites were chosen to obtain the maximum impact: the rehabilitation project in Torino covers 87500 m2 in an old quarter, where a high social impact is expected through the implementation of efficient district heating. The urban conversion project in Stuttgart covers 178000 m2 of newly constructed surface area for 10000 people and provides very high building standards combined with biomass co-generation.
