The Building and Social Housing Foundation is organizing a five-day study visit to the above project, winner of the 2007 World Habitat Award.

Purpose of the visit

The purpose of the visit is to provide an in-depth understanding of the practical techniques, training methods and project management approaches used in the project. Intensive site visits will form a major part of the study visit, providing an opportunity to study all aspects of the project and to meet those responsible for its success.


What is ZukunftsWerkStadt Leinefelde?

The municipality of Leinefelde-Worbis in former East Germany has succeeded in addressing the problems faced by shrinking cities through an innovative and integrated, participatory approach to urban regeneration.
The urban living environment has been significantly upgraded, with redundant housing stock demolished and over 2,500 apartments refurbished to high environmental standards. As a result of the project, the economy has been revitalised and depopulation trends have gradually been reversed.
