Sustainable Mobility in a Liveable Urban Region - How We will be on the Move Tomorrow

Gateways at annual conference on Mobility at House of Logistics and Mobility (HOLM), in Frankfurt am Main, Germany

As part of the programme of the annual conference of the State of Hessen’s Cluster Mobility at the House of Logistics and Mobility (HOLM), Frankfurt am Main, Prof. Dr. Kai Vöckler, associated with project-mo.de and HfG Offenbach, and Marten Wassmann, founder of Gateways, discussed the role in social cohesion for communities and society of both mobility and logistic’s hubs. With multiple interaction with the audience, they considered how hubs may well play a central role in every-day routines and what this means to the design of hubs as physical manifestations of social network nodes and the optimal integration of mobility and logistic’s hubs into the surrounding urban fabric.

Kai Vöckler interviewed Marten Wassmann particularly on the insights gained in recent projects in the Netherlands, where the revitalisation of inner city transit facilities has sparked a process of integrated regeneration of neglected urban fabric resulting in dynamic, comfortable and inspiring epicentres of urban life.
