After completion of the course, the students understand the methodological basis for the development of mobility concepts for mixed-use residential developments. The students will apply familiar and new interdisciplinary assessment tools and methods from transport planning to problem solving and business modelling in building and urban planning. The aim of this course is to enable students to design with the principals of transport and create integrated, user centered mobility solutions. Students learn the skill sets necessary to consult potential clients on the benefits of shared mobility solutions, implications and operative risks.


The aim of this course is to introduce students to mobility concepts that could be required in mixed-use residential developments. Module 1 aims to provide students with an overview and critical discussion of current and future urban and district planning best practice and the relevance of transport and mobility planning for district developments and building structures. The initial sessions will introduce the students to how to quantify and qualify user types and user demands through urban and socio/cultural-demographic analysis as well as trip assessments. Basic principles of user centered design, user mapping, formal and informal mobility mapping will be presented. The module offers the theoretical basis and tools for the development and realization of new approaches and methods towards integrated urban planning. Real case studies will be presented and discussed. The case studies will be selected from international research literature. The discussion will cover the perspectives of different stakeholders (real-estate developer, mobility service provider, resident, city urban planners, etc.). In Module 2, the focus turns on the students, who will apply the gained knowledge to design integrated mobility service solutions. Through cost estimates, analysis of the specific regulatory and stakeholder framework and basic business modeling, the students learn how to conceptualize operative models and specify integrated service packages that add value to the end user and also the real estate developer. This is usually achieved through space gains (less parking) and financial gains (less car dependency).

Lehr- und Lernmethoden

The course is based around weekly interactive seminars. The course will apply different methods from traditional lectures to discussions, group work, desktop research, in-class exercises, and presentation skill training. Students are expected to be prepared and engage actively throughout the semester. In Module 1, the lecturer will present the students literature and case studies, followed discussions that are facilitated by short PowerPoint presentations with key aspects, structured questionnaires and group work on some examples. In Module 2, the students will perform group work to develop a mobility concept for a -determined real-life large-scale mixed-use development. The project – in its early planning stage – is set in an urban/ peripheral location with substantial mobility and demands. Each team will assume the perspective of a different, and therefore, a unique focus area (i.e. business plan, spatial planning, segmentation etc.). The lecturer will supervise the students and discuss their results in weekly interactive seminars. The outcome of the exercise is the development of different mobility concepts with different focus areas. At the end of the, students will present their concepts in form of a mock client pitch.

Studien-, Prüfungsleistung

Students are expected to demonstrate their understanding of the range of mobility and underlying mechanisms that could be implemented at a mixed-use residential development and develop a forward thinking concept from the perspective of stakeholder (real estate developer, mobility service provider, resident, etc.). Special focus will be given to shared mobility services as a complement of public transport and-motorized modes. Students must demonstrate that they are able to discuss different case-based perspectives on integrated mobility planning and mixed-use development and apply them to actual new real estate development projects. At the end of the semester, students hold a 15-minute final presentation set up as mock pitch and submit a project report. The final grade is composed of the grade of the report (70%) and the presentation (30%).
