Unlocking future mobility in a city rich with history

The city of Ulm, in the southern German state of Baden-Württemberg, is implementing a multi-faceted urban landscape masterplan, which will culminate in the Landesgartenschau (or Regional Garden Festival) in 2030. A key component of this plan is a major €182m upgrade of the surrounding infrastructure including a new road tunnel (replacing an elevated section of the B10 beside the Blaubeurer Tor), replacement of the Wallstraße road and active mobility bridge, plus several pedestrian/cycle underpasses.

Knight Architects, together with engineers Konstruktionsgruppe Bauen and tunnelling specialist Boll und Partner, has been appointed to deliver the network of complex structures that will enhance active mobility and vehicular travel, as well as secure better access to green space for residents and visitors. And crucially, in a city steeped in history and tradition, the Blaubeurer Tor will become a renewed focal point.

Knight Architects has already left its mark in Ulm, having worked with the town to create its award-winning tram and pedestrian / cycle crossing Kienlesbergbrücke, which opened in 2018.
