During the last fifteen years Tübingen has converted many former industrial or military used areas to lively and attractive neighborhoods. The French quarter, the Loretto or the Mühlenviertel are some of these new places, characterized by a mixed use, a colorful architecture and a high impact of private building groups.
For this success the City of Tübingen received numerous awards and distinctions, e. g. the German Urban Planning Award 2001, the European Urban Planning Award 2002 and the National Award for Integrated Urban Development and Building Culture 2009. Cord Soehlke has been part of this development projects during the last 14 years and will present the city's goals, ideas and experiences in his lecture.
The official representative of the city of Tübingen is Tübingen´s Mayor for Building and Development, Cord Soehlke, will share some of the Tübingen´s development experiences with Ann Arbor
