Mobility and residential living are the main challenges facing the Frankfurt Rhine-Main metropolitan region. The prices on the housing market are rising faster than building land becomes available. The transport infrastructure is already stretched to its limits. LIVING THE REGION – RHINE-MAIN interrelates mobility and residential living – after all, the region lives of its localities being easy to reach, and the wide range of housing available. It is defined by the way places are linked with one another. The region is highly dynamic and differs fundamentally from the ideal of an idyllic landscape.
The exhibition creates future images of a region which accepts the challenges facing it and seizes the opportunities involved – which relies on new technologies, pursues an integrated development approach, and sees exemplary projects in Germany and abroad as role models. The scenarios presented showcase possible perspectives and whet our appetite for shaping this future! This is the only way to pave the way to a future in which people live the region.

Curators of the exhibition are Christian Holl, Felix Nowak und Kai Vöckler.
