How can a city evolve to meet the changing needs of its residents and the environment?

Innovative mobility concepts, housing shortages, a wide range of leisure activities and local supplies are the issues that concern our society and lead to the challenges of mixed uses and densification. Reducing further urban sprawl and land use is paramount to the viability of our planet.

Future Urbanity is a parametric experiment focused on complementing existing building structures with modular components that represent the key aspects of mobility, housing and leisure (sports and recreation). The social and structural needs of an urban ecosystem are reflected in the various modules, which are based on the existing building structures and create a new symbiosis. OSA Architects have focused their concepts on the urban development of Munich in order to create livable designs, a higher quality of life, mixed uses and a modern aesthetic that at the same time values the existing buildings. The key is efficient use of space, sustainability factors and vertical expansion. The model is the sum of four concept studies that have different interfaces with the same goal.
