On 19 July, the delegation visited the Werksviertel Mitte in Munich, which used to be the main factory of the German food manufacturer Pfanni. Now thrilling architecture, linking of past, present and future and the spectacular mixed use of buildings and public space makes the Werksviertel the prime district of the future. A new neighborhood in Munich’s city centre for living, work, leisure and culture is being created in this 40-hectare former industrial and commercial area. Around 1,200 new homes are planned for some 3,000 citizens, with long-term plans for up to 7,000 new jobs. By addressing the severe housing shortage in Munich, more than 340 apartments will be available as social housing. The Werksviertel district will enrich the quality of life in many respects and offer people an urban home.
