The laboratory for the city quarter of tomorrow

The Urban Ideation Lab is the laboratory of tomorrow’s urban quarter. The lab is spatially integrated into the B-Part Coworking Space and uses the same infrastructure. Every six months, free workplaces in the B-Part Am Gleisdreieck are newly assigned to dedicated founders, volunteers and researchers who deal with the core topics of the urban quarter of the future – the Urbane Mitte Am Gleisdreieck: mobility and work of the future, digitalization, sport & health, art & culture and responsibility.

How do we model transport? How do we mobilize sustainable concepts? How will we work in the future? We are seeking new approaches for a future in liveable cities with meaningful work – not only for a global creative elite, but for everyone. Pioneers and visionaries from all professions and walks of life, hand-picked by us, can access the space and network at B-Part Am Gleisdreieck free of charge for six months. In exchange they make their work available, for example, for profiles, presentations, insights, or studies. Also, our Fellows will collaborate on two design sprints and public presentations.

The Lab Teams were allocated by a special committee after the applications had been evaluated. Now exciting teams and individuals form the Urban Ideation Lab. The Lab Fellows investigate and experiment with future topics that will shape everyday life in the coming years. The imaginative work of the Urban Ideation Lab is supervised by the Lab Manager Amira Sahr.

The first Urban Ideation Lab Fellows 2021 are:

  • Stadtbewegung e.V.
  • Georg Hubmann
  • Symbiotic Lab
  • nextT
