Sommerbäder als Bauaufgabe der Gartenarchitektur von 1900 bis 1945

Christoph, Johannes (2020)

Der Typus der Sommerbäder (Freibäder) fand im Forschungsgebiet der jüngeren Gartengeschichte bisher wenig Beachtung, was dazu führte, dass heute viele historische Freibäder von Überformung, Verlust und unsachgemäßer Sanierung bedroht sind. Als Hauptgrund dafür wurde ein fehlendes Bewusstsein für die Qualität und Quantität sowie den kultur- und bauhistorischen Wert identifiziert. Ziel dieser Arb...

Abfall, Stadt, Natur

Kokoula, Xenia (2020-04-24)

Der nordwestliche Rand der Metropolregion Athen wird bestimmt durch die Ver- und Entsorgungsinfrastruktur, eine (teils noch informelle) Siedlungsstruktur und soziale Zusammensetzung sowie deren vielfältigen Zusammenhänge und Verknüpfungen mit kulturell geprägten Vorstellungen von Schmutz und (Un-)Ordnung. Räumlich wie sinnlich dominiert die Mülldeponie Fyli, eine der größten Europas. Der Abfall...

The mutual dependence of negative emission technologies and energy systems

Creutzig, Felix ; Breyer, Christian ; Hilaire, Jérôme ; Minx, Jan ; Peters, Glen P. ; Socolow, Robert (2019-02-28)

While a rapid decommissioning of fossil fuel technologies deserves priority, most climate stabilization scenarios suggest that negative emission technologies (NETs) are required to keep global warming well below 2 °C. Yet, current discussions on NETs are lacking a distinct energy perspective. Prominent NETs, such as bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) and direct air carbon capture...

Gentrification through Green Regeneration? Analyzing the Interaction between Inner-City Green Space Development and Neighborhood Change in the Context of Regrowth: The Case of Lene-Voigt-Park in Leipzig, Eastern Germany

Ali, Lena ; Haase, Annegret ; Heiland, Stefan (2020-01-16)

Green regeneration has become a common strategy for improving quality of life in disadvantaged neighborhoods in shrinking cities. The role and function of new green spaces may change, however, when cities experience new growth. Set against this context, this paper analyzes a case study, the Lene-Voigt-Park in Leipzig, which was established on a former brownfield site. Using a combination of met...

Unique Opportunities of Island States to Transition to a Low-Carbon Mobility System

Soomauroo, Zakia ; Blechinger, Philipp ; Creutzig, Felix (2020-02-14)

Small islands developing states (SIDS) contribute minuscule proportions to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and energy consumption, but are highly exposed to climate change impacts, in particular to extreme weather events and sea-level rise. However, there is little research on potential decarbonization trajectories unique to SIDS. Here, we argue that insular topology, scale, and economy a...

From Planning to Implementation? The Role of Climate Change Adaptation Plans to Tackle Heat Stress: A Case Study of Berlin, Germany

Mahlkow, Nicole ; Donner, Julie (2016-08-22)

Global climate change increases the necessity for mid-latitude cities to tackle urban heat. Climate change adaptation plans are common policy mechanisms to approach the issue. This paper studies the city climate development plan (StEP Klima) of Berlin, Germany, by using Constellation Analysis.
