Open knowledge landscape

The site of the former Scharnhorst Barracks is one of three military conversion areas in close proximity to Osnabruck's university and polytechnic campus. The means to revitalize the abandoned sites are to further develop the knowledge landscape. This implies more than simply building additional institutions of tertiary education or campus leisure spaces. Urban Catalyst studio and KCAP are therefore developing a dynamic concept for the former Scharnhorst Barracks site, which integrates current spatial potential and transforms it successively into a new knowledge landscape.
