lala.ruhr – Imagine Green Urban Futures

“Imagine Green Urban Futures” – under this motto, lala.ruhr called on innovative urban designers in the run-up to the festival to develop digital scenarios for how a street can change positively. While the results of the work can now be experienced and explored along Bochumer Straße with an AR app from our technology partner cityscaper, an inner courtyard with its garages is transformed into a visionary green lounge and provides the perfect backdrop for talks on digital innovation in urban and landscape planning and its use in participation processes, as well as information and introductions to our AR project along Bochumer Straße. An exhibition on digital innovations in planning practice rounds off the programme.

How do we want to develop our cities for the future?

lala.ruhr invites you to the Quartiersoase and presents lots of inspiration around digital tools and interventions for planning and participation.

  • Talk and exhibition on VR and AR in urban and landscape planning and for participation formats in urban development
  • Introduction to the AR project “Imagine Green Urban Futures” along Bochumer Straße
  • Treffen Sie den Künstler: Utopie für urbane Zukünfte mit Jan Kamensky
  • Showrooms and workshops for digital planning tools

Was ist lala.ruhr?
Das Labor für die Landschaft der Metropole ruhr
lala.ruhr widmet sich einer integrierten Sicht auf die Transformation der urbanen Landschaft des Ruhrgebiets, in der Menschen, Gebäude und Landschaft symbiotisch, resilient und zukunftsfähig eine hohe Lebensqualität bieten. Es entsteht ein kreativer Laborraum, in dem unter dem Leitbild einer produktiven Landschaft Ideen und innovative Konzepte für die Zukunft der Metropole Ruhr diskutiert und entwickelt werden. Wir fördern den Austausch über geografische und gedankliche Grenzen hinweg. Wir bündeln und vernetzen die Potenziale der Region im internationalen Kontext.

Participants/Projects

Team pimento formate

Change your city the way you like it!  

pimento formate creatively uses technology for events, education and entertainment – especially for climate and social issues. The mix of storytelling, 3D designs, games and the integration of social media creates special interactive AR experiences that people want to share with others.

Team Greenbox Landschaftsarchitekten

The team from the Cologne office Greenbox Landschaftsarchitekten, led by Felix Brennecke, applied with the idea of thinking urban planning vertically with the help of an AR application and thus using the street or urban space on several levels.

Anja Cambria Oellermann

The variously planted nature islands create different poetic moments in Bochumer Straße. With reference to lines of sight, directions of movement and the course of the tramway, insect-friendly plantings, flower-filled retreats and sheltered meeting places are visualised in the urban space.

Coming from the south, the wildflower field creates a colourful attraction even from a distance. As you pass, narrow paths open up to retreats hidden in the tall sea of blossoms. Further along the road, a tunnel structure covered with blossoms creates a visual experience for the passengers of the tram passing through. At the fork in the road to Bergmannstraße, tall trees line the square, inviting people to play boules, swing, drink coffee and linger between the trees. Tall flowering perennials direct the view around the corner to Bergmannstraße and hide a small pond covered with water lilies. As the last island, the pergola forms a séparée planted with vines. The evening ends under the vines, sheltered from the tram traffic.

Visitor section

You can get active yourself in the visitors’ section: Our programme partner cityscaper invites you to think about green utopias for the future of our cities and to implement them virtually. You want to make the cars disappear from Bochumer Straße? Flowers instead of concrete? Bicycle racks instead of parking bays? Or would you prefer an adventure playground in front of green facades? Come along and become visionary urban planners!

Opening hours 14 - 20.00

Under the motto “Imageine Urban Green Futures”, lala.ruhr invites you to discover the inner courtyard and the visionary garage workshops: We will present digital innovations in spatial planning with images, videos and animations, and in the garages you can meet the technology partners, programmers and artists at work. The green courtyard and its garages will be transformed into an inspiring green lounge for two days.
