Research field: Urban Transformations Towards Sustainability: A Law and Governance Perspective
The interdisciplinary research project VERTICALurbanFACTORY – which is funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (programme Stadt der Zukunft) – analyses modern concepts of ‘stacked’ functions and urban production. In light of the increasing scarcity of space and the drastic loss of businesses and thus jobs in cities, urgent measures are necessary against the spatial segregation of living and work places. Successful examples of urban integration will serve as a starting point for further research on how commercial and manufacturing usage is possible within scarce urban space. Relevant questions of planning and energy, mobility, law and governance will be addressed from an interdisciplinary perspective.
