Guidelines for the creation of public open spaces in Dresden, Dresden
The public open space in the city of Dresden is currently characterized by a large diversity of surface materials, site furniture and design standards. Like in many other comparable cities, an unimaginable variation in site elements has taken place over the past decades, which created a negative visual impact on the urban image.In order to avoid further development towards exchangeability and facelessness of the city’s image, fundamental design guidelines were developed. Typical characteristics were worked out and specified according to the sites requirements. In order to give these characteristics a systematic framework, chronological and spatially homogeneous entities are analysed (e.g. Gründerzeit, Quarter Äußere Neustadt, etc.) and congregated into typological groups using example areas for easy reference.
