Academic Research
ongoing - The spatial dimension of residential multilocality

The topic of residential multilocality is studied with regard to its spatial dimension to understand the interaction between secondary residences and the urban space. Focus of research is the secondary residence in the urban context and its specific requirements to the urban fabric and the public realm.
A catalogue of case studies shows the range and pluralism of secondary residences and illustrates its relevance for spatial planning. Spatial-structural analysis is combined with empirical social research to gain new insight about the interplay of secondary homes and the city.
The research rethinks current planning practices and shall provide new approaches reflecting changing requirements of society due to globalisation, increasing mobility, growing flexibility on the job market and pluralism of lifestyles.
