Workshop description

In our interactive workshop you will play the role of financial advisor for a municipality. In our
calculation model you will play with numbers, concerning different factors in spatial development to
achieve the highest possible financial feasibility. You will have to manage all the wishes and
requirements of three stakeholders: the future residents, the municipality itself and the developer of
the project. On the one hand, the municipality aims to build as many houses as possible, in order to
combat the housing shortage. On the other hand the residents want to live in a nice, green
environment without a lot of high-rise buildings. The developer however, wants to keep the price of
the site as low as possible, in his aim for a profit. You will experience how difficult it is to combine all
these interests, in your target for a feasible project.
