MVRDV - Grüne Mitte

Grüne Mitte

Grüne Mitte

The process of building within an existing neighbourhood is often fraught with conflict. In too many development projects, the local community has a stark choice: accept proposals presented by developers and the municipality, or fight the development outright. But in Düsseldorf, the Grüne Mitte project has shown how far a development can go using an approach based around open communication, negotiation, and compromise. The urban design project proposes almost 500 new apartments – approximately 50 per cent of which will be social or affordable housing – and community spaces to uplift the neighbourhood, while meeting the expectations of the city and their client.
