The City Lab...

The City Lab is a research and innovation platform for issues relating to urban quality of life. We are interested in the diverse technical, planning, economic and social challenges of a sustainable city („Smart City“). We are convinced that a city with the highest quality of life requires social innovation and mutual learning and identification processes in addition to technological progress. As City Lab we create consciously potential spaces for ideas and literal thinking. With our work we promote an interdisciplinary, open, creative and critical discourse between stakeholders from business, public administration, science and research as well as citizens and civil society. As project developer in an urban environment we collaborate with various disciplines (architecture, urban and regional planning, real estate development, energy planning, urban sociology, creative scene,…). Our goal is to bring the conceptual approaches and innovations of „smart“ cities on the ground and to increase the quality of life in neighbourhoods, city districts and city regions together with the people concernced.
