The qua­lity of the build envi­ron­ment is essen­tial for the iden­tity of our cities and cul­tu­ral land­s­capes. Buil­ding cul­ture (Ger. Bau­kul­tur) is thus a cen­tral ele­ment in social debate with the living envi­ron­ment. The Federal Foun­da­tion of Bau­kul­tur assigns a report on the qua­lity of the built envi­ron­ment in Ger­many 2014 („Bau­kul­tur­be­richt 2014 – Bericht zur Lage der Bau­kul­tur in Deutsch­land“) to obtain insights of buil­ding cul­ture in the cur­rent imple­men­ta­tion. A report with gra­phics and text will be crea­ted by the Chair of Urban Design and Urban Deve­lo­p­ment in col­la­bo­ra­tion with the Ger­man Insti­tute of Urban Affairs (Difu).
Lite­ra­ture rese­arch and secon­dary ana­ly­ses are imple­men­ted – espe­cially the three focus the­mes of the Federal Foun­da­tion: 1) „habi­ta­tion and mixed accom­mo­da­ti­ons“, 2) „public space and infra­st­ruc­ture“ and 3) „plan­ning cul­ture und pro­cess qua­lity“. The out­co­mes were com­ple­men­ted by focus groups, local sur­veys and results from public con­sul­ta­ti­ons and workshops.
Reci­pi­ents of the report are the Federal Government and the Ger­man Bun­des­tag. They will be sen­si­ti­sed for buil­ding cul­tu­ral the­mes and infor­med about cur­rent deve­lo­p­ments and need for action wit­hin the scope of Bau­kul­tur by the report. On top; the results will be pro­ces­sed for the inte­res­ted (pro­fes­sio­nal) public.
