New concepts for Mobility hubs including train stations in city centres

Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure; Sustainable Cities and Communities
Open for application

Current situation 

Enschede, as other cities, changes constantly. This demands a constant flow of new ideas and concepts. One of the physical areas that needs transition is the Railway Station Quadrant. We envision a whole new quadrant where multi modal mobility still has a central place but also is a vibrant area for meeting, working, recreating and living.

The challenge 

Railway station and their surroundings transform in more than ‘just’ the physical place you to a train. They are growing into multimodal, innovative hubs where mobility, meetings, work and life are facilitated. The Railway Station Quadrant calls for concepts that fit Enschede’s ambition to be an innovative, attractive and green city.

We encourage students to think along with us. The challenge is too big to solve in just a few months and leaves a lot of freedom for the students to experiment. So, we hope to start with brainstorming concepts that fit the vision requirements (combination of mobility, meeting, work and life) 

Then, in cooperation, select the focus areas for further elaborated. 

Considering that the background information is written in Dutch it might be useful to have one student on board who can read Dutch.

Expected impact

We hope to be inspired with a lot of new and vibrant concepts that help us to build a new, sustainable and future proof Railway Station Quadrant
