Creating new standards for a more connected and livable city, Henning Larsen has designed a New Masterplan for Wolfsburg, Germany. The new prototype for urbanism across the European continent diffuses new energy in the city center. Selected to design the project in a competition in 2019 that included competitors UNStudio and Bjarke Ingels Group, Henning Larsen’s proposal for phase 1 is expected to reach completion by 2023. Designed in collaboration with client partners SIGNA, Stadt Wolfsburg, Volkswagen AG, and Wolfsburg AG and with creative consultants Gehl, Arup and Wordsearch, Wolfsburg Connect is the latest addition to novel urban and architectural interventions in the city, including the Phaeno Science Center by Zaha Hadid, and the Heilig Geist Kirche and Kulturhaus by Alvar Aalto. Proposing to tie the city together with active and livable urban infrastructure, Henning Larsen’s design for the 13.6-hectare masterplan, in the Nordkopf district, puts in place a prototype for small-scale urbanism.
