The “Bügel“ - brighter than you think!

A project of the residents, groups and initiatives of the housing development at the Bügel

Since 2015, the “Bügel” high-rise settlement on the Ben-Gurion Ring, formerly regarded as a problem district, has been included in the federal-state program “Social City”. Its 4,500 residents come from over 40 nations and largely manage to co-exist peacefully and tolerantly. Many of the locals were residents from the very start, having settled here in the 1970s. They love the district and are determined to preserve its quality of life, and are very dedicated to improving the image and reputation of their district. Actively engaged, many of them have introduced their ideas and suggestions for developing the quarter to the ISEK (integriertes Städtebauliches Entwicklungskonzept – integrated urban development concept). And one of the major issues is an improved lighting concept.

Nine “dark locations“, perceived as unsafe, in the middle of the Ben-Gurion-Ring surrounding the St. Lioba Church and just beyond an idyllic pond - which is still very dark and gloomy at night - will be “brightened” by various illuminating objects and installations.

The object design is the culmination of various viewpoints and the creative processes from those of all ages living in the “Bügel“. They illustrate the upcoming changes involved in the renovation process of the Social City, which also include improvements to the district’s lighting. An event will take place every evening during the Luminale, together with tours.

You are cordially invited to join us at the “Bügel” for this creative parkour!
