Hardenbergplatz in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf is a typical station square with a high density of usage. It is to be made smart and flexible for all forms of mobility, i.e. geared towards the specific event, day, weather and season. In order to make spaces like Hardenbergplatz more responsive to future needs, new forms of governance of public spaces are needed, e.g. in the form of innovative, community-oriented operating models. With the help of a digital negotiation platform, usage requirements are coordinated in order to take specific mobility needs into account and improve quality of stay. The project focuses on four interrelated building blocks: implementation of a Mobi-Hub open to providers as a use case for the development of an operating model; development and testing of a platform for operators to allocate space; and scaling of the use case with the aim of improving quality of stay on the square.
