1010 I THE IDEAL CITY ?

THE IDEAL CITY? - As the title of my master thesis implies, the main aim of my work was to find out if an ideal city concept exists and which city concept is going to be the most ideal for the development of future cities. Therefore, the main goal of my work was to develop city concepts based on an “Urban Planning Toolbox”, which is grounded on a research on European and American city typologies. The question in this context was which aspects (American, European or both) can be better implemented on a building plot. The result of my master thesis is a proposal for urban planning scenarios based on key principles of American and European city typologies. Furthermore, it should give insights on the future of cities and how the advantages of them can be realized in a new scenario.

“Cities are highly diverse. For example they can be large or small, full or empty, constricted or generously spaced, modern or traditional. There is practically no limit to the number or combination of such defining characteristics.”
