CONCEPT

AIMS

The project is aiming to take the current status quo of Lusatia one step further, implementing a visionary approach. Prescind the overwehlmingness of current issues a focus of the design strategy are the qualities of the territory and the ways they can be involved into a long-term development concept. A main aspect of the Lusatia landscape are the huge ‘wounded’ from the coal extraction activities territories - the coal-mine pits. Currently they are impossible to use for agriculture, due to the eccess of acidic elements in the soil, which creates highly unhospitable growth environment for most edible plants. Furthermore the desert-like current physical character of the landscape requires a lot of investment and efforts for retaining the stamina of the earth and the aesthetical qualities of the space in order to be used for iniciatives in any other area - be it residential, touristic, industrial. this issue is counteracted via creating the connection between it and the recent past of the region. Since it already has established a recognition as an energy-producing such, this is a precondition that can be taken further, but eliminating thenegative side-effects that coal-energy burdens the territory with. From the renewable sources of energy the one that fits the territory preconditions is chosen. The biomass is a energy source that has the biggest impact in terms of territory usage from all renewables. It involves planting huge territories with fast-growing species in order to fastly grow the material for energy production. This is a similar requirement to the one that phytoremediation process has, but in the case for faster extraction from the soil of conteminants and faster stabilizing of the soil process. The design proposal develops this precondition by transforming the mine-pits into biomass fields and converting the former coal power-plants into biomass-plants.

The concentration of attention in Lusatia region is currently focused on the negative aftereffects from the decades of coal-energy production. Nevertheless this period has also been an inevitable step, leading to technological and scientific achievements, which alow us to recognise the faults in our previous approaches. The project aims to explore and develop a scenario in which the advancements, left as a legacy from the coal-energy period, are further developed in order to counteract and solve current, global issues.

CONCEPT The area north of Cottbus is currently very isolated, regarding all activities that take place at the town and avoided as an unhospitable environment both for recreation and investment. The design proposal creates a strategy for reviving its aesthetical and structural essence by transforming it to huge biomass fields. In regard to the stage of already naturally achieved regeneration different types of vegitation is planted. From annual plants - in the most recent areas of coal-extraction activities to fast growing trees like Paulownia , planted at the most regenerated sectors of the fields - all the species are picked in order to not only be suitable, fast growing biomass producers, but also to be hypercaccumulators of the existing eccess acid elements in the earth. Hence the production of biomass is combined with phytoremediation of the fields as well as stabilisation of the distorted earth in order to ensure the possibility for agricultural or construction activities at the area after the three eight-year phases of development of the area, which the project implements. There are also stripes of unplanted areas in midst of the fields, which are conserved in order to monitor the process es of natural regeneration of the area as well as to create a corridor, directly connecting Cottbus and the Janschwalde area, converted to biomass power plant , biotech park and biotech industry development.

is also emphasized on at the BTU university Cottbus. Along with that the town and the area around it provide a number of necessary preconditions needed for further exploiting the potentials of the bioengeneering scientific field.

AIMS The maing goal is the complete integration of the stigmatised coal-energy production territories into the social, touristic, cultural and economical contexts of the area. As well as that a development of its existing potentials is being seeked. One of the main advantages in the current situation is the accumulated scientific and industrial knowledge base. This
